Great Sermon Piet! I love how you present how loving Jesus is to the disciples (and us) as He gently corrects and leads them to truth and comfort. For whatever reason I was drawn to look at your sermons for my devotion time this morning and this sermon struck a cord because I have a friend who is a Christian of East Indian heritage and she and her family are still not connected to a church and have doubts about the infallibility of scripture and are considering quantum physics type of arguments regarding spirituality. Believing the resurrection is key and since she has already met my sisters now at my daughter's wedding I'm going to introduce her to my brother now:D Please pray that the holy spirit blesses this sermon to her assurance and to God's glory.
Great Sermon! Spoken with true zeal,love and conviction for the Word of our Lord God.
Thank you Reverend Bout, and many blessings to you, for the encouragement and joy of hearing the Lord being magnified and honoured, as He alone is worthy of.

We must have a great God! Blessed grace of God that humbles us and exalts God! Our happiness consists in being the humble servants of a great and glorious God (glorious in His being, in His salvation), not in the feeling that we are great... Sovereignty of God is our comfort.
Loving Savior. Christ highly exalted in our salvation. But as I listened to this message, I understood that God wants to exalt His Son the Savior TODAY also in my life, to live today in the light of His salvation and love!
The people on earth. It is a new thought for me, I never saw this verse in this light. Thank you for it! I thought after that: Satan will not succeed to put unity between ALL people on earth to create a new Babel, because there will be a group who will not follow him and his plan - the church of God!
