Great Sermon! Several years ago I had noticed through my own bible study that Israel was Godâ€™s wife and He gave her a divorce for adultery. I also knew we were promised to the Son for His bride and He will return for us. But I didnâ€™t see the connection between Bathsheba and Dina and some of the other things you mentioned. It was enlightening! Thanks!
Great 'Sovereign' Sermon We listened to this on the way back from the funeral. The Sovereignty of God is everywhere in His Word. Great job Earl, the Holy Spirit equipted you with this message for this time. We were able to give God all the Glory as we saw His Providential hand work through the good and the bad as He sanctified those that He has called and we trust God's Sovereignty for those that heard the Gospel message from Steve Lawson.
Timely Message Praise God for bringing each one of us to Grace Fellowship Church because we have the privilege of hearing this kind of expository preaching 2-3 times a week and the result has been Spiritual growth for each one of us. TO GOD BE THE GLORY!!
What, another eye opener!! This goes along with "Our Idenity in Christ", there has to be a before and an after as the result of our salvation. When God awakens us from the dead and makes us alive in Him, He gives us Himself. At the time of regeneration we are filled with the Godhead, the Spirit of God the Father, the Spirit of God the Son, and the Holy Spirit. We are completely filled at that time and there is no other filling, we have all the power we need to live a Holy, separated life on to God and God did it all. Praise His Name and to God be the Glory!
Thank You Thank you pastor Will for leading, feeding, and protecting us. I love the Worship in the way we do the Lord's Table and that it is the focus of the service and not something added on at the end of the service, it's all about Christ and what He has done. Bless His Holy Name!
WOW What a great message, thank you Pastor Will. This passage is not about Lazarus, it is about Jesus as God. When we focus on man we have taken our eyes off of God and what He is doing. This passage shows us that God is Sovereign in our salavation too. We were dead men until God awakened us in our sins and we responded with I believe but that was the only response we could have because God gave us the faith to believe it. GOD CHOSE US (before the foundations of the world), WE DID NOT CHOOSE HIM. GOD is always PREVIOUS! Praise God, what a humbling truth!
Great Sermon! Praise God, when He awakens the sheep, they wake up "In Christ". I can't wait to hear pastor Will teach on John chapter 11 and how the calling out of Lazarus is related to our own personal salvation. Thank you pastor Will for our spiritual growth.
