Ephesians 2:4-6 reminds us that God is the one who brings salvation. Salvation is initiated by God‚Äôs rich mercy. He recognizes our hopeless and pitiable condition and takes appropriate action to alleviate it! God‚Äôs great love motivates Him to save sinners! This salvation by grace alone begins and ends with God! He gives spiritual life to the spiritually dead! This new life is ‚Äúnot of blood nor of the will of the flesh nor of the will of man, but God!‚ÄĚ (John 1:13) Blessed be God who makes us alive with Christ, raises us up with Christ and seats us with Him in the heavenly places in Christ Jesus! It‚Äôs all of grace!
Our prayer at SermonAudio is that God would be pleased to open the eyes of many to salvation by grace alone by faith alone in Christ alone! We are encouraged to receive feedback from our broadcasters each week who are sharing how God is using His Word to reach people around the world with this good news!
SermonAudio is proud to be a partner with FAME as we co-produce a weekly 'audio journal podcast' called Five Minutes of FAME taken from a first-person perspective.
But first, some other encouragements!
We are excited to announce a new film project that has actually been underway for the past few months here at SermonAudio! It's called Mungu Kwanza: God First and it is our attempt to tell the stories of some remarkable people at FAME Mission through this new medium (for us) of documentary film.
This is the project we are currently engaged in and hope to have it completed by December of this year.
We would invite you to watch a short trailer of the work-in-progress and consider showing this film, once complete, at your church or home as an inspiration and encouragement of what big things a small mission in a forgotten region of Africa can accomplish as they seek to put "God First" in all that they do.
Encouraging broadcaster feedback..
Below is some of the feedback from broadcasters we've received just this past week. We encourage you to contact them and tell them that you saw them here!
Jeff Riddle, Christ Reformed Baptist Church www.sermonaudio.com/crbchurch"SermonAudio has been a good outreach for us. We have been contacted by many people through the years. It also allows us to maintain contact with people who move out of area to other places. We have heard from people all around the world, from Romania to Hong Kong! Some time ago I was preaching at a church conference in Hong Kong. After one of my messages, a man who was not a member or regular attender of the church came up to me and said, ‚ÄúI have been listening to your sermons on SermonAudio for years!‚ÄĚ That was amazing!"
Ron Stump, Deacon, Christ Fellowship Bible Church http www.sermonaudio.com/christfellowbible"SermonAudio is great! We love the monthly reports and rejoice in how God is using your site to help us reach listeners all around the world. Uploading sermons on your site is very simple and easy. You serve us well."
Rev. Daniel Jarstfer, Christ Our Hope Presybterian Church www.sermonaudio.com/christourhope"I find SermonAudio to be a tremendous resource. I appreciate that you helped me transfer my sermons from my former church‚Äôs account to my new church‚Äôs account. I use your site to post sermons to social media sites for use in outreach. I had a high school friend out west connect with me recently. After a few exchanges, I told him that I was preaching through Romans and my messages were all on your site. He was eager to listen to my messages on-line. I post sermons on social media from other speakers and organizations on your site as well. I am always amazed to see each month where people are listening and what sermons receive the most downloads. I‚Äôm so thankful we are even able to reach into restricted access countries with the gospel! SermonAudio has been helpful ministerially as well. When I was a candidate for my current church, I told the search committee to listen to any one of my sermons on your site. I also like to listen to the sermons of candidates that we are examining in our denomination for licensure or transfer. Your site makes this very accessible for us. When our people have to miss a Sunday, many go to SermonAudio to listen to the message before the return for worship so they can keep up with the book series I am working through. These are several benefits of being on your site."
Jon Speed, Christ is King Baptist Church www.sermonaudio.com/christisking"We have enjoyed good activity from your site. We receive emails occasionally from listeners thanking us for sermons. People have visited our church who found us through SermonAudio. Being on the site is definitely worthwhile."
Issac Botkin, Christ the King Church www.sermonaudio.com/ckctn"I use the SermonAudio mobile app on Android which works very well. I know your site is very useful for our own congregation. Our members use it frequently to listen to sermons and to share those with others. They also find it highly useful when traveling to find like-minded churches in the area. Having a central site with lots of great preaching content is so helpful to our people. It has been a blessing to our congregation!"
Beverly Webb, Sonlight Baptist Church www.sermonaudio.com/sonlight"We always feel so blessed when we see how many states and countries have downloaded the sermons from Sonlight. October had 38 states and 31 countries! We know those that listen are truly hearing the Word of God being preached and taught. We think our Pastor is awesome! "
We would encourage you to read through more testimonials we've received over the years from both listeners and broadcasters alike.
