Great Sermon! Victory is given in the Lord Jesus Christ. Victory does not come by the military tacticians who can surround the people of God.
A great practical sermon that gives strong encouragement to the Christian. Turn to the Lord.
Great Sermon! If you listen to this sermon and at the end you say you have been listening to Reverend Graeme Craig you have not understood the message. Faithful preaching is from Christ himself. We should listen to Godâ€™s Word rather than men.
Lands a Blow! This sermon exposes a weakness in the Reformed Church which we are all in possession of. The preacher lands a blow not by attacking his hearers but by showing the full meaning of the text. Historic issues are used to highlight the truth of Godâ€™s Word.
This sermon will not cure you of your weakness, but you will be more conscious of it. Christ is the remedy.
Filled with Useful Illustrations Enjoyed this sermon, a presentation of the importance of not simply knowing the facts of the Gospel but having faith in the Christ of the Gospel. The certainty of Christ as the Saviour is set forth here. Of particular note is the helpful use of illustrations Very useful to the listener.
"If you were to design and build a bridge of reinforced concrete to cross a river, 99% of that bridge was made of strong reinforced concrete, and a little bit at the end you just make of mud. Rotten wood or something like that. That little bit at the end would be a fatal flaw that would ruin the whole thing. That's what it's like to trust in Christ with something else attached. Even if it's a little bit. That's what Paul's saying here. It's Christ alone. And we know that. Have you learned that, that Christ alone can save? That's the basic [fact] of the Gospel. And until you see that, until you feel that, you will never come to Christ."
Christ is Everywhere in the Scriptures Heard this sermon live and have also downloaded it. An excellent help to Christians to read the scriptures in a Christ-centred manner. Scripture not being used to provide politics with some moral underpinning - but to advance the gospel of the risen Saviour.
Popular uprisings and demonstrations are not a thing unique to our own day.
Great Reminder! In this sermon Reverend Macleod makes mention of a previous sermon of Psalm 50:15 which is also worth hearing! It would be highly profitable to listen to it after hearing this general exposition of the whole Psalm.
Encouraging and Uplifiting So many aspects of this sermon are particularly touching to a Christian who was not raised in the church. "Obey even when it costs you" the preacher says at one point.
The Minister furnishes the hearer with lots of other examples of faith, as is a mark of Mr Craig's preaching there is a constant reference to the whole revelation of God's word to present the Word of God powerfully to the hearer.
It will also be a great encouragement for those who feel their lifestyle choice or chosen profession is somehow making them beyond salvation.
For Rahab was not only outside of the church but she openly lived a life of sin and is openly called a Harlot.
Christians will find this encouraging them to pray for those who are outwardly wicked. Those who are outwardly wicked will see that the blood of Jesus Christ is able to cleanse.
Encouraged to Go Very useful introduction examining the textual background of these verses. Showing the overwhelming support for inclusion in the text. Preservation of scripture maintained.
Then comes the powerful examination of the eyewitness accounts and the role of signs and works to testify to the truth. Who can deny it? Who can ignore the call of the Gospel?
The Risen Saviour is risen indeed. Let's go and tell the good new.
Great Sermon! Great talk, particularly for those who have come to the exclusive psalmody position and think merely affirming a Biblical doctrine makes their worship acceptable.
The comments regarding the introduction of human compositions into worship being (generally) seen in churches that have a declining knowledge of the Scriptures is thought-provoking.
It is a sad that Mr Silversides (as he says himself) does not go into as many matters in as much detail as he can. Very much enjoyed it. But more importantly I was challenged by it. Feeling the blessing already.
Brilliant Sermon on Baptism Excellent look at who should be baptised, dealing not only with common misunderstandings regarding the New Testament accounts of baptism but also providing a systematic overview of the relation of children to God in covenants.
