Great Sermon! Thanks. Been praying for sermons pointing to the work of the Holy Spirit in sanctification. Specifically, HOW he works faith in our hearts thru the Gospel message. Its almost as if the Holy Spirit flows in us along with the very words. Amazing! And also, the importance of acknowledging Him as the SOURCE of our desire to live in love and thankfulness towards God and towards each other. I believe it is important give the Spirit credit, where credit is due....for clariy's sake. So again, thanks for this comforting word.
Great Sermon! As we witness to the church community around us not only with the preached word, but also in our daily lives as prophets in the office of beileiver; let's be mindful of the rampant denial of the particular soverighn grace of God, especially in the realm of the covenant. (I think especially of the embracement of the Federal Vision). Let us pray that God will use us personally to enlighten his people who are still in those churches being deceived so craftily by false teachers at the instigation of the devil himself. I think that the false teachers in these churches are well aware of our stand in regard to this heresy, but the people in those churches don't have a clue. They do not understand its implications and they certainly will not hear about that from their preachers! So, let us in sincere love for Gods deceived people, strive to show the soverighn majesty and graciousness of our Covenant Friend to all those that cross our path. May all Gods people know and confess His glorious truth so that Jesus may come soon. As Rev. Overway said---how long, oh Lord? Come Lord Jesus, Come quickly!
