Great Sermon! This sermon, well the whole book of Galatians, reminds me of what Jesus said in this verse, Matt. 11:28-30, "Come to Me, all you who labor and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest. Take My yoke upon you and learn from Me, for I am gentle and lowly in heart, and you will find rest for your souls. For My yoke is easy and My burden is light.‚ÄĚ God asks us to love. I thought that would be so easy (a light burden)but when God opened my eyes to this truth, I've found over the years that it's the hardest of all to love with real, sincere, God like love. I praise and worship Jesus because He did what I can't do, He loved and loves perfectly, His love pleases our Father and that makes me rejoice. I wish I could be like Him, one day I will.
Great Sermon! Galatians 4:21-31 can be hard to understand. Paul goes way back to Sarah, and Hagar, their sons, and the two covenants, to show us, what we experience today, the tares and the wheat. And that we who believe are the children of promise. What a blessing this sermon is. I love going through this book with this pastor.
Great Sermon! The pastor, Steve Marquedant, said, "So many things we could say, we could preach five or six sermons on this, but we won't." He was right. As he got into the story you begin to see the grandeur of it. It's such a joy to meditate on the many things we learned. How blessed we are as our Lord opens our eye and ears to see His glory. Excellent Sermon!
Great Sermon! This is an excellent exposition of the Book of Obadiah. God's judgements are just but terrifying. I'm reminded to love everyone who crosses my path, because these things are written for our example. I'm blown away when Jesus calls Judas "friend" as he betrays Him. "But Jesus said to him, ‚ÄúFriend, why have you come?‚ÄĚ Then they came and laid hands on Jesus and took Him." Matt 26:50
Great Sermon! There is a lot of misunderstanding about faith and Abraham's righteousness. It's hard to realize you have faith in faith until you see that it is God who saves us apart from anything we do. The word unprofitable servant has become dear to me over the past month because we add nothing to God and His glorious work. I am in awe. This second message on faith and works is outstanding. "You can believe in God without believing God." I've learned a lot from this message. I learned about the curse also.
Great Sermon! This is a very encouraging sermon. What this preacher said is true of me and it's the hardest thing for me to overcome. I want so much to touch what Christ has done, and yet I know if I do I will defile the most pure work of all. It is a filthy thing to go there and yet it is so bound up in my old nature. I want so much to please God that I forget the most blessed truth of all, it is all of Christ. I preach the gospel to myself everyday. It's not about me. I am an unprofitable servant, I add nothing to my Master. It is He who saved me.
Great Sermon! Truly blessed and at the same time saddened upon listening. My husband treated me so much better when we weren't married. It's a sad, sad reality for many. This sermon will definitely make men think and realize the high calling of being a husband. They better be emotionally and mentally ready when they decide to take on a wife, otherwise expect a unhappy wife and unhappy home.
Do you have little faith? Do you have little faith? I do. This message is very encouraging. Jesus shows His power over Satan, sickness and death. It's interesting how he wanted all to see the woman's miracle but not the little girls. I had wondered why he told them not to say anything about her being raised from the dead. The end is very good concerning weak or little faith, so encouraging. Thank you Pastor Steve.
Excellent Sermon! Unfortunately I have to believe that most so-called Christians are intellectually, mentally lazy when it comes to studying and understanding Holy Scripture. There are 168 hours that God has loaned to us every week, and how many hours do we devote to reading and expanding our knowledge of His Word? I'm fortunate to be retired and spend 4-5 hours in serious study -- much of it listening to outstanding teachers such as Dr. White, and many others on this fantastic site. I grow deeper in My Lord and Savior almost daily. I especially appreciate the Apostle Paul's writing and marvel at his devoted duty in such a hostile world -- amazing what he did. I try to see the life and challenges he faced daily. Beautiful man and a great inspiration. I've gotten into studying much on his "thorn in the side" problem and have learned much about understanding it.
