Great Sermon! I agree romans 7 is not experiential to a new Christian ( certainly not my testimony ). The older oj Christ I get the more frustrated I get by my indwelling sin. This was indeed very comforting.
important Sermon! Very needed and important refutation of the naive and popular statement that is here exploded and refuted many. A pastor of a sovereign grace baptist church told me "we are not a confessional church", as if that was better. Yet they have a short statement of beliefs in print! This message shows why such statements are untruthful and an irrational position that only opens the door for a multitude of errors and heresies, that have flooded modern churches.
Great Sermon! Outstanding sermon. I agree with pastor Beeke and the majority of commentators that Romans 7 is in fact the description of a mature believer. Pastor Beeke mentions Martyn Lloyd Jones and his view of the individual being not a mature believer but describes someone under the initial conviction of the law and a new believer. However I have listened to Jones's sermons and he definitely changed his view.
Joy Unspeakable This is a wonderful lecture. If you are discouraged because of your sin and see yourself as unlovely and unworthy, listen to this and look to Him Who loves freely and fully. To hear this live was a blessing, indeed. I was filled with more desire to be holy, to please Him Who gave Himself for me.
God sees us. Job is not understood, nor believed by his friends, so he turn to God. God is his witness in heaven - God knows that Job committed no sin to merit this trial which seems to him as punishment.
Great Sermon! Dear Pastor, Thank you for your message. I am a missionary in Nigeria (thank God for the internet). The book of Daniel is not 'milk' for babes. There are so many difficulties there about timing, history, the coming of the antichrist...But I thank you for bringing me back to the Cross and to the Crucified. I receive peace in my soul afresh by listening to your preaching. May God bless you, your family and ministry, in the name of Jesus, amen. Lia Leigh.
What Christianity is ALL about! This sermon begins with examples of very old Christian folks who are nonetheless full of life -- bearing much fruit! How did these elderly people arrive at this wonderful condition? They were NEW CREATIONS! Being "in Christ" as a NEW Creation makes ALL the difference -- it's essentially what Christianity is all about.
Now, becoming this new creation inaugurates a necessary and ongoing struggle involving the "good fight of Faith," and we must daily put on the "new man" and put off the old things which hinder our walk as a NEW Creation.
Beyond being informative, this is a very practical message. Listen to it only if you wish to be challenged to BE who you are in Jesus Christ: the Gospel believed and applied.
