Great Sermon! This was exquisite both in content and providential timing.
My paths crossed with someone I had not seen in a few years. He assumed I was still working at my previous job. When I told him I was not he seemed very surprised and commented that "it was such an important and professional job, what happened?"
I'm afraid it got to me and I went home asking God the same thing and struggling to submit in trust and faith.
This sermon encouraged me to renew submission, faith and obedience.
I have been applying for jobs that pay a fraction of what I previously earned but have been unable to find work. It seems that the Lord will need to give favor with the right employer.
Thank you again for this message!
Great Sermon! The hideous, tortured character Gollum from the movie "Lord of the Rings" is an inspired example of what our wicked thoughts look and feel like. Awesome illustration of the abasement and bondage that happens in our hearts and lives when we do not walk uprightly with Him. Thank you for the encouragement that we can fine cleansing and a renewed mind in the Lord.
Great Sermon! Listening to this sermon is a bit like picking fruit as you keeping working on your tree until you obtain all the ripe fruit.
Listen to this sermon twice if you are distracted by the background noise. Its worth it to make sure you "hear" what is being said.
I liked what was said about work/employment issues. It may not seem realistic in some aspects as most work places are challenging to the saved person but what was said needs to be considered in prayer.
Great Sermon! Jeremiah 17:5&6 speaks of a man who does not trust the Lord but lives a parched life and does not see good when it comes. If we make flesh our strength we will always dwell in a discontented wilderness. To trust in the Lord gives us those eyes of faith that helps us see His good and be thankful for what we have.
Great Sermon! It is so difficult to not look down at the waves and feel that one is perishing at times while seeking to wait on the Lord. Pastor La Belle is much used of the Lord to teach the importance and necessity of waiting on God. From reading numerous comments and needs of others on sermon audio I would pray for myself and other believers, "Lord I believe, Help my unbelief".
Great Sermon! "Faith is an intelligent grace". What a great quote. Unbelievers and the world want you to feel that faith in God is unintelligent and unrealistic. Afflictions from the Lord renew our hearts in this truth.
Great Sermon! Thank you Rev.La Belle,for the very clear explanation of what it is to love God,and the practical applications of how to do it.
I want to let you know that the sound level on the sermon "Hindrances/Means to Loving God" is very low ,and prevents people from hearing it.
Great Sermon! i came across this sermon by GODS providence, this is what i needed.i am thankful that you take your calling seriously, many dont.i live in an area populated by churches ,but a famine of the propagation of what the gospel demands.i find in you a Christ like fervor that is missing here.i attend a pca church but this type of preaching is not there.my wife and i pray for such a ministry here. would that the orthydox presbyterians would plant here in east tennessee ,the sermon i heard was you cant love GOD and the world.thank you ...rick peters
Very convicting thanyou pastor, i really appreciate this message. the Lord has been dealing with me in so many areas of my life where i am a lover of worldly things. and you are right that many in the churches want to make light of small sins and they think you are wierd if you agonize over small sins but it is a blessing to be delivered from any sin. and when you turn from that small sin then you realize how big it really was and how hateful it was toward God. i have a loooong way to go in mortifying the flesh and i am blessed to have heard this self examining sermon. thankyou
Great Sermon! Audio volume recording on your church sermons normally have been good. But for this sermon online last Sunday, audio was very low. I turned full volume on my computer, and it is still low. Hope there is improvement next time.
My 2 cents!
