Exposing Error - Exalting Christ! Do we really believe Christ's word: "Ye are all brethren and one is your Master"?
It seems not!
Praise God for another man who has received the grace of humility to preach the Truth on this matter!
The greatest need in the churches today seems to be for men who are in office to humble themselves before God's Word and with trembling, stake their all upon The Person and work of the Lord Jesus, instead of labouring in their own strength to maintain some kind of institutional organisation which Christ has never set up, and which so demeans and obscures His and the Holy Spirit's offices.
Let's wake up, and smell the aroma of our altogether lovely Saviour, Christ Jesus The Lord, and believe Him, and His All-Sufficiency, and preach Him alone , to the glory of God the Father, lest it be said of our generation.. 'other lords and gods have had dominion over them'.
Thank you brother.
I am one of those poor who must also come to the Scripture without the aid of the wisdom and learning of men and find there all the instruction and guidance I need. But how much the more will Christ be thus exalted in the multitudes of the 'common people who heard Him gladly'
Paul the apostle, discounted and discredited all his carnal wisdom and learning, lest it make the Cross of Christ of no
Blessed Assurance Even when we were dead in sins, hath quickened us together with Christ, (by grace ye are saved;)
And hath raised us up together, and made us sit together in heavenly places in Christ Jesus: (Eph. 2:5,6)
Perfectly Focused Sermon! This is the perfect message for Christmas.
In every way perfect. In every way necessary for all believers, PASTORS, and our neighbor 24/7.
This beautiful, Christ honoring, man is certainly not a traditionalist. His preaching of the word is effective.
IT IS EFFECTIVE TO PREACH LIKE SERMONS ABOUT CHRISTMAS. This message turns the heart to the LORD.
Great Sermon! I am going to try to help answer the question posed by Aliyah. I hope I am correct when I say what Todd was trying to say is we have two natures if we are believers. One is earthly which cannot keep from sinning and one is of God which cannot sin. If we have that new nature it cannot and will not sin. Our new nature is no more capable of sin than our old earthly nature is capable of keeping from sin. Paul expressed the frustration of having both natures in Romans chapter 7. I am not sure if that helps or not but that is what I get from the sermon.
Christ Honoring, God Glorifying Sermon! What a God! What a Saviour! What a pastor we have in the midst of this perverse generation we find ourselves in.
My prayer is that his flock recognizes the gift God has given to them as he exalts the name of the LORD. Surely they are growing in the grace and knowledge of the God man, the Lamb that was slain to redeem us.
May the presence of the Lord abide upon this servant continually.
Pray for him.
