Excellent message This is excellent. The pastor I was saved under once said if we really knew and understood people's background, we would be much less critical and more understanding which would result in exhibited love toward fellow believers. I fear the church today has become a critical environment rather than a place where believers gather to worship Christ and feel the freedom to confess their sins and receive mercy. We are quick to judge when others don't meet "our" Christian standards--not Christ's standards (or our interpretation of His standards). This helped clarify the difference for me. A message worth listening to periodically.
Great Sermon! Profound and moving sermon. For years now I have listened to your preaching, very often to the same message over and over - and I always come away with something lovely about Jesus. Thsnk you so much.
Great Sermon! Thank you for bringing this important series on Romans back again. Romans for me has been the bedrock of my Christian life. You are an excellent teacher and for many years now I have benefitted from your sermons .
Great Sermon! Over these past 15 years or so of my being a believer one of the greatest blessings God has provided has been the ability to listen and learn from you, Pastor Donnelly. I thank God for all the men of God He places before us to help us along the way.
Great Sermon! I just lost my son, Tont. . Tony was a believer and I am also. I listen to dozens of messages for comfort and understanding and this was one of the best . I thank the Holy Spirit for bringing before me these words of comfort right when my thoughts are at their darkest and most vulnerable . And I personally thank you Pastor Donnelly for I have also listened to your messages for many years. Gid bless you.
Agape ! Your sermons are a Blessing !
the Sacrament of circumcision was a blood ordinance continued in the New Covenant as one of "The Heart" rather than the flesh (Rom2:28-29, Col2:14). in my "home church" we believe (based on Scripture) that the natural process of birth (John3:5) is both of water and of the Spirit. we do "dedicate" infants and pray for their future voluntary acceptance of The Gospel.... offer baptism to all without regard to chronological age, who desire to be baptised (by the Father, Son and Holy Spirit). as to infants, intellectually deficients, the preborn and others incapable of forming intent, perhaps they are some of us whose salvation was pre-ordained from the ketebo whom God has chosen to spare this tribulation. (??) (1Cor13:12).
i thank our Father in Yashua's Precious Name for letting me share in the richness of your insights of His Word.
