Powerful Truth I was in the service when this sermon was preached. I had to leave shortly thereafter and didn't have an opportunity to speak to Pastor Robert before I left. I wanted to say thank you to Pastor Robert for being willing to step on a few toes and to be very honest & open about sin. I wish to encourage you to keep on in this fear of the Lord; He will bless you with courage & boldness as you demonstrate your faithfulness to Him before men.
I found the exposition on this passage very eye-opening. I come from a more legalistic cultural background and have seen a tendency in the people around me to use verses such as these to justify strict outward actions without actually changing their hearts. The question, "is it your hand that causes you to sin?" really got me thinking and understanding the passage more for what it was intended to say: your heart is the issue. Yet I also appreciated how this was balanced with the reminder that we ought to value purity so much that we are willing to do/lose whatever it would take to maintain that purity for he sake of our Lord.
Thank you again!
Hello, everyone. My name is Roy and I am planning to move to Greenville soon. I looked at the construction workers' luncheon pictures & love the idea of that type of fellowship. I was wondering if anyone from the luncheon could give me any contacts/information on what companies are hiring in your area. I am a plasterer with over 30 years' experience in all phases of plastering (drywall, stucco, and many other areas. Please feel free to give me a call @ (701)240-6434 if you have any information that you feel would be of assistance to me.
Thank you very much for your time, and I look forward to meeting everyone in the near future.
Great Sermon! Thank you Pastor Cook for preaching from your heart. I thought of John Wesley's words "When you preach if they can't see the tears in your eyes let them hear them in your voice." If I was not saved after hearing this message I thing that I would want to be. Love you pastor and love GFC too!
Great Sermon! This was good to hear, Indeed the need to is to fully surrender. How far short of that we fall!
Thanks for bring us back to the reason for surrender and not just the command to do so!
