A much needed Sermon! Very good observations Pastor Trice. It is so easy to get caught up into secretly doing things for self rather than for others. Because of our self conceit we tend to fail to see that tendency in ourselves, while we suppose we see it clearly in others. Even our best and most noble efforts are contaminated with selfishness. I would suggest that those who listen to this sermon take a close look at their own intentions. I don't know how anyone can listen to this sermon without saying, "Lord, is it I?" Well done Pastor Trice!
Great Sermon! I so appreciate this sermon and David's message. Although I'm happily married now I remember being single and all the questions I had inwardly about my role in church. This sermon is such an encouragement to me even now with my husband deployed. It makes me that more mindful of my days-to resolve not to waste my time in pleasing self while I am temporarily alone.
Ace Sermon! I have been reading Edwards now for three years and have done a dissertation on his work I can a say that Edwards us still Ace!! This is small work but it is truly enriching. Being more dependant we are on God the more he delights in us.Praise God
Great Sermon! Pastor Vance really delivers on an important topic for all Christians, the Provocation in the wilderness. An understanding of Numbers is crucial in understanding much of the NT, notably Hebrews chap 3 and 4 for this study. Too many denominations today seem to gloss over or even ignore the examples of the rebellion and the consequences thereof. Thank you for a great sermon.
Great Sermon! Edwards does it again. God really blessed us in giving the Church such a great preacher/teacher in Edwards. I find Edwards agruments very helpful when I talk to Christans and non Christians alike.Get into Edwards it will really bless you !
Great Sermon! Just listened to this short sermon by Jonathan Edwards, and it was so practical and uplifting! I enjoy the sermons that edify, or convict of sin, and give us deeper understanding of God's word. Jonathan Edwards is as relevant today as when he lived on the earth, because he preached God's word so powerfully. Please have more and more sermons by this wonderful giant of preachers!
Encouragement after the Virginia Tech tragedy David Vance's church meets in a library near the Virginia Tech Campus, and this message, preached less than a week after the tragedy, is a blessing indeed! Regardless of what may befall us and those around us, God makes no mistakes.
What does it cost? The concept of the "pearl of great price" is pretty deep. You must give up everything to get it yet you give up nothing of any lasting value to you. Of course, it doesn't look that way at the time. The question is whether you have truly given up the temporal things of life to obtain the True Prize.
For Such A Time As This When undergoing trials, it is important to remember that we were selected for this time. If we are faithful, like Jonathan Edwards, our influence can proceed through many generations. What a timely message.
Great Sermon! Rev Vance attacks the most difficult chapter in the Bible. He wrestles with the unpardonable sin. It causes the believer to break into a cold sweat and think about their behavior. Any man who puts his hand to the plow and looks back is not fit for the Kingdom of Heaven...Luke 9:62
