I realised just yesterday that each line of this poem has eleven syllables. Similarly the songs 'How Firm a Foundation' , 'My Jesus I Love Thee' and 'Away In A Manger' do too, which means it can be sung to either of these tunes.
Great Sermon! This message has truly blessed me. The ways of the world are wicked and following christ is my ultimate goal. I know the holy spirit will guide me into all truth. I have never heard a sermon like this before. I used to listen to false doctrine. Not quite understanding why I still felt unfulfilled. I am sinner,but I feel If I continue to hear the word of god,I will be changed. Thank you so much and god bless you.
Nicely said, well written, exquisitly edifying. How beautiful and pleasant it is to see the bretheren dwelling in unity. May GOD continue to enable you to herald gospel truths to a dying world, knowing that it is good news to HIS elect children. As faith comes by hearing, may GOD continue to give you the pen and voice of a ready scribe.
Fine wine Bro. Craig is rightly addressing a needful doctrine. A word fitly spoken in due season. I am of Christ, I am of Apollos, another of Cephas, is still with us today. I needed to hear this, and I'm grateful for Craig's message. I never heard him say "abandon the true gospel"; yea rather, to internalize it. Great illustration at the end!
Great Sermon! How all of us(the sheep and pastors) need to hear and be reminded of this message (this topic)more often in the grace gospel churches and how the world needs to hear it. We so often defend and push other doctrine more often than we hear this one. I was convicted of my sin of unforgivingness in my heart and the pastor did'nt have to shout at me he had a calm and factual Biblical message sometimes that goes alot further than yelling. Even though I listen to Rolfe Bernard. Thank-you Pastor Hollingsworth Tim Burnett Jacumba CA
A Blessing to Hear Your Gospel Ministry i don't often get to listen to your messages, dear brother, but it is a joy when i do. my heart is always warmed and encouraged to hear the lord jesus christ exalted and the gospel proclaimed thru your ministry. may the lord continue to bless you and keep you, pastor.
Must Hear Serrmon! A truly great sermon on the cost of discipleship. Pastor Heshimu truly spells out what it means to 'go unto Christ outside the camp bearing His reproach, and what it costs to do so. This is a must hear sermon.
There is a difference between being born blind and being reprobated for rejecting Christ, as Israel was. They were blind naturally, but God also blinded them for unbelief, shut and closed the door, etc.
you say in your first line, "we're born blind but we can repent" This sounds like an Arminian. The unregenerate man can only sin. He must be quickened to life (new birth) then God grants the elect one faith and repentance. Acts 5:31 11:18 Eph.2:8
Great Sermon! This message gave me a turning point in my christian life, prompting me to return to the Lord and once again take the journey and walk with Him at His command. It is an awesome message, a message to remember for the rest of my life. And I hope to abide in Him and have the courage to blow the trumpet to draw God's attention back on me. More power to you Pastor Heshimu.
