Great Sermon! Very thought provoking and the realization that Christ may take that blessing and impart it onto some other church or people and the challenge is now to make sure that I am and we are as his people bearing much fruit. This sermon should be widely heard and acted upon.
Bless the Lord Exodus 21:5 And if the servant shall plainly say, I love my master, my wife, and my children; I will not go out free:
6 Then his master shall bring him unto the judges; he shall also bring him to the door, or unto the door post; and his master shall bore his ear through with an aul; and he shall serve him for ever.
Years ago now, I was given counsel that confused my understanding of the Scripture. I choose the path that was according to His word and added Exodus 21:6; you eluded to. I'm reminded that my lot is related to this and it is Christ who is my Master and none but Him,
my Way, Truth and Life.
Thank you for reminding me of the joys of
serving such a Master as the Lord Jesus Christ, our Prophet, Priest and King. Sometimes when hard pressed we are like the disciples Matt.8:24 And, behold, there arose a great tempest in the sea, insomuch that the ship was covered with the waves: but he was asleep. 25 And his disciples came to him, and awoke him, saying, Lord, save us: we perish. 26 And he saith unto them, Why are ye fearful, O ye of little faith? Then he arose, and rebuked the winds and the sea; and there was a great calm.
Grace and peace to you as well,my brother
Psalm 48:14For this God is our God for ever and ever: he will be our guide even unto death.
Bless the Lord O to be reminded of the Strength of Mighty God of Jacob to know He is my God and I am Jacob's! though the archers are shooting and troops assault, to be reminded of who MY GOD IS; whose I am and whom I serve, frail and halting as I am.
Isa. 44;4-6 4 And they shall spring up as among the grass, as willows by the water courses.
5 One shall say, I am the Lord's; and another shall call himself by the name of Jacob; and another shall subscribe with his hand unto the Lord, and surname himself by the name of Israel.
6 Thus saith the Lord the King of Israel, and his redeemer the Lord of hosts; I am the first, and I am the last; and beside me there is no God.
Thank you my brother for opening the word of God as a fountain to a thirsty soul in the desert, breaking the bread of life to one of Christ's who hungers for righteousness, though the pillars of a family and of the earth shake. Acts 2:38-40 My hope is in the Mighty God of Jacob
Psalm 46:10 Be still, and know that I am God: I will be exalted among the heathen, I will be exalted in the earth. 11 The Lord of hosts is with us; the God of Jacob is our refuge. Selah. I read a sermon of future hope from this text.
Great Sermon! Absolutely soul lifting edifying and refreshing, it is truly remarkable what the eye of faith can see. To listen to that after a gruelling week at work, is just superb.......Still at your best Mr Campbell, top drawer!,
