In my OT Bible reading this year, I have been struck by the emphasis Scripture writers put on the nations. For example, in Genesis 12 God promises that through Abraham ‚Äúall the families of the earth will be blessed.‚ÄĚ Chapters such as Joshua 12 lists the nations that Israel defeated, prefiguring the triumph of Christ over all powers (Revelation 20:8-9). Extended chapters in prophetic books (see Isaiah 13-20) point to the coming final judgment of Christ of men (Revelation 20:11-15). Until this final judgment, Christ's church has the joyous responsibility to ‚Äúgo ye therefore, and teach all nations‚ÄĚ (Matthew 28:19). We would value your prayers for our SA team as we work diligently to partner with our broadcasters to ‚Äúpreach the gospel to every creature‚ÄĚ (Mark 16:15) As we do so, God's promise of His presence and power upon us (Matthew 28:18, 20) strengthen us to keep pressing on in this mission to make sound preaching available to all people. Our broadcasters often provide feedback that encourages us. As we hear of God's blessing, we rejoice and give thanks at the work God is doing!
But first, some other encouragements!
SermonAudio.com has been such a great blessing to my husband and I as we have relocated and traveled the States. The church locator and sermon by speaker are among my favorites. The ability to find a local church while visiting a new city over a Sabbath is invaluable! To be able to hear a previously preached sermon by the local Minister is valuable in knowing one can participate fully in worship. The sermon by speaker enables me to listen to sermons in a series I would otherwise miss. By Book enables in depth study of scripture and text. Thank you for updating this wonderful resource. -- Listener
We've got mail! We're also thankful for each and every encouraging letter that comes in the mail. Simple notes like this remind us that there are real folks out there who are still listening. You know who you are!
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!
Dr. Scott Hanks, Heritage Baptist Church www.sermonaudio.com/hbclawrence"We are extremely happy with SermonAudio. Lots of people in our church family use it. We hear from people who listen from other states. What a great blessing to be able to listen to sermons on this site! It is a definitely a blessing to us! We appreciate that you have doctrinally conservative content on the site as well."
Paul Davis, tech coordinator, Heritage Presbyterian Church www.sermonaudio.com/heritagerpc"We are loving SermonAudio! It works great for us! We like not having to store all our sermons on our own site. I find uploading sermons to the site quick and easy. The live webcast feature is very nice and easy to set up. This allows our members who are unable to attend a service to still participate. It‚Äôs a huge blessing to be able to listen to so many other sermons that are available on your site. Having so many different devices that access the site is also a big advantage. SermonAudio does everything we need it to do and more! We really are thankful for all you do for us."
Mike Waters, Heritage Reformed Baptist Church www.sermonaudio.com/heritagerbc"SermonAudio fundamentally helps us and blesses us in two specific ways. It allows us to bless others with our teaching and it allows us to be blessed by the teaching of others. I personally listen to SermonAudio almost every day. As I am preparing sermons weekly I often look at messages by various men on the site to see how they divide up the text size for the sermon. I am accessing the site all the time. I listen to several well known speakers that minister to my heart. Your site has also broadened my horizons to other speakers from different backgrounds or denominations. I even enjoy listening to otherwise unknown pastors who may not be as polished as some of the featured broadcasters but who are faithfully preaching God‚Äôs Word. Often after I listen to a sermon from one of these men I stop and pray, ‚ÄúLord, thank you that you have so many faithful men of God preaching Your Word!‚ÄĚ I just want you to know that you all are just a great blessing to me and our church."
Pastor Brian McCrorie, Heather Hills Baptist Church www.sermonaudio.com/heatherhills"We‚Äôve appreciated the SermonAudio service, which we‚Äôve used for almost 10 years now, I think. The service allows our teaching and preaching to go FAR beyond our community, and we‚Äôve received feedback at times from listeners literally around the world. The service is easy to use and reasonably priced. We‚Äôre thankful to be able to take advantage of such a great service to the ministry of the Word. Blessings!"
We would encourage you to read through more testimonials we've received over the years from both listeners and broadcasters alike.
I appreciate sermonaudtio.com very much and read the News in Focus every time. Thank you! Lately, I have clicked on a news article or a commentary, and a completely different one comes up. Why is this happening regularly? This time I cannot find a commentary by Kevin Swanson that is listed on your front page.
