True. Fellowship is pretty lean. As per Hebrews 3:13 we are suppose to encourage, exhort and admonish each other daily. Reality is barely weekly with Sunday worship. Looking forward to the heavenly place. When we see Him, we shall be like Him - 1 John
Misery. Absolute Misery. How grateful for the new birth. Thanks for underscoring just how miserable hatred is. Hate God. Hate Neighbor. Hate self. Remarkably we are being transformed into the Image of His son!
Opposition. Opposition it never stops. The Opposition seems to not only never stop but intensifies. A faithful walk following The King is an absolute necessity. Life is a mine field. Thank you for pointing out several more mines.
Challenging. It's challenging to find any exhorting, rebuking, encouraging within the church. Hebrews 3:13 says to exhort, rebuke and encourage each other DAILY it's challenging to even find that WEEKLY at Sunday worship. If you find yourself, even 1 Jonathen or 1 Nathan or 1 Barnabus consider yourself blessed.
Exquisite! And I'm not even married. But if I were or if I am to be this is a perfect model of a Godly Husband. Single people can also benefit from this as many of the principles can be applied to our relationship with the The Lord Jesus Christ. Thank you for your ministry Pastor.
Sparks! Sometimes in every direction. I hear yah on it being lonely as a Pastor as it's pretty lonely as a regular member of the body of Christ. Hebrews 3:13 says to encourage, exort and rebuke each other daily but reality is it's challenging to find that even weekly at Sunday worship. Keep preaching Pastor your blessing, rebuking, encouraging and exorting me daily from many miles away and I send your sermon links near and far.
So many layers. So many layers to sin. It's so disgusting and repulsive. Can't wait to be done with it. We are soldiers may we be God's soldiers. Sometimes I wanna be done with this Christian thing, but O so grateful for His irresistable grace. I know He's the only source of true goodness and I desire to be like Him and with Him - 1 John Pastor pray for me as I will pray for you. His will be done.
Preach On Brother! You and your buddy Joe Losardo are the best 1-2 punch "in the business". An enemy multiplies kisses but wounds from a friend can be trusted - Proverbs ... Thanks for all the bloody noses keep preaching cause I'm gonna need another my dear friend.
