Very Encouraging I've listened to this message twice. It's very encouraging and such a wonderful reminder of how the Lord uses 'jars of clay'. As I reflect, I am amazed at the times that He has used those private moments with someone to share the Gospel. No flashy programs required; just a sincere desire to share the true Gospel at any given moment. What a precious Lord and Saviour.
Be Prepared! Wasn't sure what to expect when starting this message? Very informative, encouraging and a heart-felt exhortation for the Biblical mandate to caring for our loved ones, both physically and of course spiritually. Thank you Pastor Dykstra.
HERE I STAND This is part two of "Christ Lives in Me". We lie if we say that we have not struggled with living up to The Law. It just keeps creeping in and even so-called seasoned believers fall into the trap of bondage others would place on them. Pastor Crippen continues a thoughtful study of Galatians. This sermon causes us to slow down and dig deep into Gal 2:20. Examining the life of Martin Luther brings an even clearer perspective on the burden of being weighed down with The Law. So, are we dead to the Law? If we are truly "in CHRIST", He lives in us and pleased with us!
Be Thankful - Yes! Pastor Crippen's Sermon Description: "Some of us believe that God owes US - that we are entitled. The truth is that we OWE God! We owe Him thankfulness. Every good thing we have is a gift from Him! If we are refusing to give thanks to God, then we are REALLY thinking that WE should be God, not God!!!"
I am Thankful for this Colossian series!
Good Overview A good overview of previous chapters in JOHN. Pastor Crippen mentions the fact that they took time away from the John series to study the Word concerning Domestic Violence and Abuse. I highly recommend this series. Looks like I will have to explore the In My Father's House series as well! I also appreciated how Pastor Crippen dealt with the Sufficiency of Scripture ... It is only the by the pure Gospel that we can be saved. Reminds me of when the Lord saved me. A woman said she was convicted to witness to me and all she knew was to just basically 'read and study' the Word. Well, the Lord had been working and as soon as I was given a Bible, well, there was no going back. I couldn't get enough of it. Yes, the sufficiency of the Word will lead true believers to a true saving faith in Jesus Christ.
Examine the heart This particular sermon is part of a series on the Gospel of John ... the sober exhortation should cause all of us to examine our hearts. We must be so careful about "going through the motions" of reading and studying The Word. A sound warning for churches to not become places of "flattery" but houses of worship. Thank you Pastor Crippen. I sense your grave concern for our "walk with the Saviour".
Trusting in the Lord Pastor Caldwell hit upon so many examples of how we can often be confused by many painful circumstances. Just when the "Christian" walk seems so 'heavenly', we are hit with an unbelievable blow. Psalm 13 is a blessed reminder to trust the Lord only. Thank you for delivering the comforting and encouraging Word.
Convicting Greatly appreciated the exhortation of this passage. Let us all check our garments to be sure we are "truly" dressed for THE WEDDING FEAST! Thank you for praying for not just the Christ Fellowship flock but for those of us who are being fed from afar. Greatly appreciate the prayers of the saints. Christ Fellowship's ministry is impacting souls so keep on "contending for the faith" JUDE 3
Encouragement to Persevere Thank you Pastor Sukhia for expounding the Word with the passion that Paul would have delivered it. I appreciate your sermons which are richly saturated with Scripture. Your prayers for unbelievers to repent and for believers to be encouraged with the promises of God are very comforting ... and today, especially, I personally appreciated them. May the Lord continue to bless the preaching from this ministry and help to exhort and encourage many who listen via the internet, who do not have Christ-honouring churches in which to worship. Let us remember to "earnestly contend for the faith" JUDE 3
Another Great Sermon! Pastor Caldwell preaches with great clarity and conviction which directs us to giving all glory to the Lord and Saviour, Jesus Christ. All the sermons from this ministry are worthy of study however, "Post Conversion Responsibilities" 5/30/2012 Acts 14:21-23 and "Deceived By Common Grace" Psalm 17:13-15 are very timely and I will be personally re-listening to them. These are worthy of transcribing.
A Timely Message This was a very timely message for me. I did not realize just how encouraging the words spoken by Pastor Knapp would be to me. I recommend that others listen and be exhorted as fellow pilgrims. Thank you Pastor Knapp for also reminding us to check our hearts concerning the 'evaluation of a church'.
Timely Exhortation! A very timely message! Anger loves to creep into our lives and justify its right to control us. Pastor Threlfell takes us to the Scriptures which admonish us to deal with this very dangerous sin.
Excellent Exhortation! Thank you Pastor Pan for reminding us of the Truth that truly sets man free! Several years ago I stopped donating to certain "christian ministries" when I was informed that they were supporting the TSPM. I asked these ministries for an explanation to which they never replied, however, they continued to ask for financial support! For years I have not had pure Biblical fellowship. All churches in my semi-remote community have compromised. We must humble ourselves before the Lord and continue to support and encourage the true shepherds such as Pastor Pan. I will definitely commend his ministry to others ... May our Lord and Saviour, Jesus Christ receive all the glory!
Heed the Warning! After quoting Matthew 22:5, Mr. Spurgeon states, "MAN is not much changed since the days of Adam." He preached this sermon August 17, 1856 but it is indeed another timely message that confronts us today. Let us beware of "making light of the Gospel."
Faithful to the Word! I listened to this message earlier this morning find it ringing in my ears. Thank you to those responsible for posting this exhortation so soon after it's delivery! I have found myself praying that the Lord would continue to work through the men He has chosen to minister at 2009 True Church Conference. May the Lord continue to raise up such worthy disciples of His holy Word and I pray that my community would be blessed with such preaching and teaching. No tickling of the ears, just exposition of the Word! May we all humble ourselves before the Almighty!
Words of Exhortation. I do not have a local church in which to fellowship and be discipled so I am grateful for having internet access to such Christ-honouring preaching and teaching. I have always had an urgency to "number our days" and even more so as the days in which we live grow more evil. I have been spending the past week rejoicing over Psalm 139 but Pastor Pollard's exhortation from Psalm 90 was what I truly needed to hear, today. "... thou art God" from verse two made me take note of how I have sinned by not trusting God more with the "outcome" of my daily affairs. It is so difficult to watch those you love take God's grace and mercy for granted. But then, " ... thou art God" is a reminder of God's awesome providence. Thank you for this wonderful reminder and may others be blessed and nourished from God's holy Word!
