Wow! I cannot remark enough how my heart was stirred by this sermon! Zach uses Jeremiah for a most wonderful introduction to Ezra 1, and closes the message so powerfully in prayer for Coldenham-Newburgh and its future! Incidentally, like a good ploughman â€” great scriptural ground is opened up throughout his text!
If your heart does not begin to beat more energetically through your hearing of this message â€” I believe I would fear for your life! For this young preacher takes everyone back to a day of awakenings â€” and invites each one to experience his own! If I lived within sixty miles of this church, this is where Iâ€™d be driving every week. Really quite remarkable! Amen!
Makes me want to run out the door and preach on one of our street corners today!
Full of Light What a glorious theme, this worship of God! As I listened to this message â€” which must be one of the best ever heard on the fact of worship â€” all I could think of was the light that was shining during this hour! Coldenham-Newburgh locates itself just north of one of our planetâ€™s great cities! Despite all its activity, and hustle and bustle â€” the question could be asked: â€śBut is this a lighted city? Does glorious light shine there?â€ť And I would respond: I does shine in this wee church, just north of the cityâ€™s locus. Our glorious Christ is here lifted up, according to his Word, on the lips of hearty believers â€” who are united in spirit and word. God bless you Mr. Dodson, for giving yourself over to Psalm 63 as I heard in this sermon. Surely this must have been one of the most wonderful proclamations in the midst of these millions of peoples. May Godâ€™s Name be praised! Amen!
Great Sermon! Preaching is such a fragile thing: We take up Godâ€™s holy text with these earthen hands, asking, â€śCanst Thou O Christ â€” speak through me?â€ť Is this not a far thing, and an ethereal thing? Can it be done? I heard Christâ€™s sweet voice throughout this sermon, and I rejoiced greatly in it! Zach Dotson loves Christâ€™s text, and since he and the Spirit agree â€” wonderful things are discovered. I find myself greatly moved/blessed by this preaching. I hope others will too. You MUST! Because where the Spirit and Word do mix â€” there IS great blessing!
Great Sermon! Such a penetrating, searching sermon! I give thanks to God to know that such preaching as this still exists. This sermon caused me to hate my sin all over again, and in greater ways! Only the Spirit can work such ends; and upon that point I would also say that this qualifies as a â€śspiritualâ€ť sermon. This sermon will only cause me to pray more for my young friend, Zachary â€” that the Lord would preserve him for the future â€” that his sermonic days may be long and blessed!
