What a loving sermon Thank you sooo much for your message about depression. It helped to think just one thing. And that is to know Jesus is walking with me. All this time i've beaten myself for not being good enough because i slowly losing my energy to serve Him and and there's a terrible guilt and shame. But knowing Jesus still loves me, it gave me hope rather than pushing myself. This gives me hope to serve Him again. Your sermon didn't judge us but you gave us the peace that it's okay not to be okay. Jesus will lift us up no matter what. Thank you so much. May God use your sermons to reach out for people who suffers mental illness and to help destroy the stigma of this illness.
Powerful Grace In Christ, there is forgiveness and grace available to all who would but trust Him. This sermon was spirit-filled and a powerful call to come to the Lord Jesus. I am thankful to have experienced this yesterday.
Great Sermon! This sermon helped me see the emotional suffering Jesus experienced throughout his life as one despised and rejected. I've never heard Isaiah 53 explained quite that way, and I think this is a great passage to share with anyone, especially youth, who have ever struggled with the hurt of social or emotional rejection. Though not the main thrust of the sermon, the description of the rejected Jesus was the most impactful for me as it revealed a Jesus even more intimately acquainted with our hurts and fears than I had considered before.
was just talking to my husband as we were leaving a funeral today. My soul is so grieved because even though Jesus has defeated sin and death...we still experience it. I know that the saints that go before us will be with our king. But when I was singing "death where is your sting" tears rolled down my face because I and many individuals I love were feeling its sting. At that point I guess I was joining the saints in asking how long lord until you come and defeat death in every way.
Just finished reading the blog entry of revelation and as I came to Rev 19-22 I burst into hope filled tears. Turns out Revelation is not gloom and doom and filled with fear. Instead tonight I found HOPE and Peace in the plan and the word of the Lord. He will rescue his bride and death and sin can NEVER touch her again. AMEN!!!
Great Sermon! Not only do you speak the truth about the biblical "homeschooling" family, but you're a hilarious individual. Seriously, if you're a pastor by day, have you thought about the comedy circuit at night? Homeschoolers: Gotta give this a listen. This guy nails it!! The dying world needs to hear, too.
