Great Sermon! What a wonderful encouragement to pray without ceasing and not lose hope. I needed to hear this, since I grow very weary of praying for salvation for my family members day after day, year after year. Thank you for strengthening my arms.
I also appreciated your comments on verse 11, that we are highly valued by God, not because of ourselves but because we are in Christ Jesus. Thank you for your good reminders that we must humble ourselves before the Almighty God, and at the same time we must remember that He values us greatly because of His beloved Son.
Very encouraging It is good to be reminded that our nation has been in a deplorable spiritual state in earlier times, even as it is now. Please Lord, move again in the hearts of your people so that we will humble ourselves and pray - for repentance and awakening in our own hearts, our churches, our nation and the world.
Wonderful testimony I've listened to all five parts of the story of this man's conversion and his life after conversion. It is just wonderful! Praise God for working in this man's heart and letting him know that Y'shua is the Messiah. Very encouraging for anyone who wants to witness to a Jewish friend.
So encouraging! What a wonderful example of God's faithfulness when his people cry out to him for help in witnessing! This is an excellent example of how any of us can witness to Jewish friends and neighbors. Thank you for sharing this.
Beautiful Sermon! Beautiful! Wonderful! Fills my heart with joy! And with longing for the new earth when, as Pastor Borgman says, we will have ever-increasing joy in God. Yes, hasten the day, Lord!
The plain and simple truth Amen! How good it is to hear the fundamental truths of our faith. It is not temporal blessings that are our greatest need, it is forgiveness for our sins through the death of Christ. Thank you
Wonderful! Wonderful teaching! Why don't we hear more teaching like this? We need to be more diligent to pray for the spiritual awakening of the Jewish people, for their good and for ours. God has promised us enormous blessings!
Last comment is despicable Dear SermonAudio staff, why in the world have you posted the previous comment and allowed it to remain here for the last five years? This woman is promoting a discredited idea called the khazar hypothesis. Anyone who wants to read about it can look that up on Wikipedia. It is false. Genetic studies on Jews have found no evidence of a khazar origin.
Her entire post is nothing but anti-semitic lies. Please do the right thing and delete it. True Christians love Jews and do not tell lies about them, lies which could inspire murderous acts such as the synagogue shooting in Poway yesterday.
So exciting! Thank you so much for this sermon. I recently became disabled and this was such a wonderful reminder that having my sins forgiven through Christ is infinitely more important than being able to walk. I was so encouraged by this!
Really like your down-to-earth style and the way you bring out the drama of these events.
Great Sermon! Wow there is so much in this sermon. I had to keep pausing it to write notes. Parallels between Jesus and Moses, Jesus and Israel. Reading further in Jeremiah 31 to see what comes after the tears - the new covenant. Herod is crushed. The baby wins. God preserves the seed of the woman so that the redemption of the world would be accomplished. Wonderful truths.
Amazing Sermon! Excellent example of Christ-centered preaching. Starts out presenting the facts and then leads to a wonderful reminder of God's love in Christ. God's judgment did not move Naomi to repent and return to the promised land but His kindness did - verse 6. She heard the good news and returned/repented.
Excellent exposition The pastor preaches about the spread of sin from one man to a tribe to a nation just like Adam's sin spread to all mankind. He reminds us of the comic foolishness of idolatry and the ultimate destruction of those who give themselves over to it.
May the Holy Spirit destroy the idols that we each cherish in our heart so that only the cross remains standing.
