Wonderful message! I was touched by this sermon. I have been praying for the salvation of a loved one with many tears, much love and deep sorrow of heart. My heart is broken over the sins of my beloved friend, but the Lord has truly stood by me and encouraged me to keep on praying. I hope in God and also grieve with hope, as I wait on the Lord for my friend's salvation. May the Lord increasingly break my heart for the things which break His heart, in Jesus' name I ask
Encouraging sermon! Thank you for the encouraging words. I have been sowing in prayer for the salvation of a loved one for the last five years, often with many tears, and I have shared the Word of God at any given opportunity, but my loved one is still far from the Lord. Thank you for reminding me to stand on the promises of God when sowing in faith. "Those who sow with tears shall reap with songs of joy" and "Cast your bread upon the waters, for after many days it will come back to you". I pray that the Lord will increase our patience as we wait upon Him. Many blessings ,Patrizia
Great encouragement! I was greatly encouraged by this sermon and I listened to it several times.Thank you so much for helping me to see discouragement as a tool the Lord is using to strengthen me and to deepen my walk with Him. And thank you for reminding us that the Lord can redeem our discouragement to make us a carrier of comfort to others. I see discouragement from a different perspective now. Thank you very much.
Tremendous encouragement! Thank you so much for the encouragement in the Lord. I have been waiting on the Lord for answer to a specific prayer for the last 20 years and I have grown very discontent and weary. I have to submit to God's timing trusting that His timing is perfect. I have reacted in an ungodly way by being impatient. Thank you for reminding me to cultivate patience. I really want to learn to rest in the Lord by trusting Him more and fretting less. Thank you very much for the refreshing of faith, Patrizia
Wonderful Sermon! After listening to this sermon, I feel very encouraged to keep on praying for the salvation of a dear friend. I have been praying for 3 years with much love and many tears for the Lord to open my friend's heart like He did with Lydia. Thank you for reminding me that the Lord often uses the most insignificant things to save his elect and that our hairs are numbered. I keep on praying to the God who opens hearts. Thank you very much
Great Sermon! I was very encouraged by this sermon. I listened to it at least 6 times and I took notes because I knew the Lord was speaking to me through the words of Rev Watts. Thank you very much for God- inspired and uplifting words, Patrizia
Very encouraging I was very encouraged by the three sermons on pain/suffering. On this Sunday afternoon, listening to them helped me to shift the focus from my own pain to the Lord and, as a result, I found new strength. Thank you very much
Great Sermon! I was greatly blessed by Pastor Winn's preaching. I am under a lot of stress at work and I am constantly tired. I pray that the Lord will teach me what it really means "to exchange our stresses for His peace". Thank you so much for such an eye-opening sermon
Great Sermon! I wish to clarify whether the artist mentioned by Pastor Colin Mercer is, as a matter of fact, "Rev" Jane Clarke from Metropolitan Community Church in Glasgow. "Pastor" Clarke strongly advocates homosexuality from her pulpit (http://www.mccinglasgow.moonfruit.com/#/resources/4544196965). During the exhibition, she invited people to comment on an open Bible with the following words: "If you feel you have been excluded from the Bible, please write your way back into it."
In other words, "please write that it is OK to be a practising gay Christian, please write that Christians who claim that homosexuality is a sin are bigots, judgemental and know nothing about God's love".
This is a clear marketing strategy aimed at promoting gay rights. Ms Clarke knew exactly what she was doing. Pastor Colin, is this the woman you mentioned at the beginning of your message?
