Rich Sermon! I've always enjoyed the Christmas Season with its colors and lights and sense of cheerfulness. Each year when my daughter was young and at home we were blessed with the means to create that sense of cozy cheerfulness. In this obscure season of my life living in my mom's home, walking her home as full time caregiver in her affliction of Alzheimers, I've not had the heart or energy or desire to indulge in that practice. But by God's grace and leading I've started a new tradition the last two years of listening to as many sermons here in December on John's prologue as I could. There may again be a season to enjoy the colors and lights creating a superficial cheerfulness, but it can never again supercede the gift of God of a deeper awe and wee more grasp of the mystery and majesty of the incarnation that has embedded by soul. Nevertheless, I splurged this year and gave myself a Christmas gift. I ordered from CBD Noah Websters 's dictionary so I was thrilled when you turned to it for its definition of humiliation. Being well blessed by your sermons. Thank you.
Great Sermon! This is the first time I've listened to this particular pastor and I believe one from the beautiful store of Hawaii tho not been just judging from what I've viewed. And I admit that I like his face and clicked this featured sermon because I thought it a very good face to portray you character of Mr. Sherlock Holmes. So let's see how well he "investigates" the omnipresence of One Whose ways are a mystery and beyond knowing. In all truthfulness, this is an excellent, solid presentation of the attribute of God's omnipresence. Everything created is in God because there is nothing outside of God, and as believers we are in Christ in God. All Glory. Excellent for young believers just beginning to study His attributes, and a refreshing for those in a longer season of walking. Your comment of can we fly under the radar of God's presence made me smile in imagining the absurdity of such thinking. Thank you for your unpacking this Truth of an infinite God in such a concise way to our little finite peabrains.
Great Sermon! Great sermon. I liked it. I am from India.One thing which I found difficult to follow were a few words which were not known to me. It would be great if the sermon is told in simple english.Other than that, it was splendid.

Excellent Sermon! Thank you Pastor Douglas for an excellent sermon of encouragement and preaching the Word of God, to His glory and for His sake, and for the sake of God's children.

Must Hear Sermon for all Calvinists! This is indeed a strange sermon coming from a Reformed Preacher! Because generally speaking, preachers who hold to 'Sovereign Grace' hardly ever preach sermons on Self-Denial.
J.C.Philpot who was himself a legend among Calvinist preachers had this to say - "Consider this point, ye ministers, who Lordâ€™s day after Lordâ€™s day preach nothing but doctrine, doctrine, doctrine; and ask yourselves whether the same Holy Spirit who revealed the first three chapters of the epistle to the Ephesians did not also reveal the last three?
Nothing more detects hypocrites, purges out loose professors, and fans away that chaff and dust which now so thickly covers our barn floors than an experimental handling of the precept. A dry doctrinal ministry disturbs no conscience. The loosest professors may sit under it, nay, be highly delighted with it, for it gives them a hope, if not a dead confidence, that salvation being wholly of grace they shall be saved whatever be their walk of life"
The above is a true saying worthy of all acceptation.
I praise God for Pastor Douglas L. Watson who though being an advocate of 'Sovereign Grace' is showing us what Christ expects of His disciples!
May God bless him and his ministry!
Great Sermon! Good sermon! Your words come from a tried heart, made strong and gentle by the deep work of the Holy Spirit, this I see...God bless you, your family and church, In Christ alone, Lia Leigh.
