A very valuable sermon on the importance of prayer Pastor Otis proves from Scripture that the prayers of God's people have real power and value. In various Bible passages (e.g. Psalm 106:23), intercessory prayers are said to have had a huge impact on events. Does prayerÂ really change anything? Yes!
Strong encouragement to persevere in prayer Pastor Otis makes the important point that persevering in prayer is faith in action. Giving up results from laziness or unbelief. We have to wait for the answer to our prayer because God wants to build patience in our lives.
The sacrifice of praise to God Pastor Otis demonstrates that a thankful spirit is the offering that God relishes. Furthermore, a genuine spirit of thankfulness transforms Christians by transporting them from fear to peace.
Servants; Not Tyrants My prayer for the brethren is that the posts minister grace to the reader, and that we will not castigate all the other bloggers. May grace that regenerated us be dispensed to all others so that it raises people up to a level where God is seen; not toward the earthly, devilish devices of fallen may or weak believers.
May we not think highly of ourselves as those our Lord is instructing in the scriptures provided in this message.
Great and holy is thy name O Lord. Cause us to remember where we were when you delivered us. Etch in our minds those things you've delivered us from. Mainly those things generated by the flesh (old sin nature).
Let the words of our posts and the meditation of our hearts raise people to where they see only your glory and where they give thanks for the things God has done in, through, and by his Son.
May God bless all of you with truth and power.
Great Banquet May we like Jeremiah say "Thy words were found, and I did eat them; and thy word was unto me the joy and rejoicing of mine heart: for I am called by thy name, O LORD God of hosts (Jer. 15:16).
My prayers go out to all the bloggers on SA that God be exalted in the hearts of everyone. May the eyes of their understanding be enlightened to the things of God and his person.
Great Sermon! More great teaching from Tim Price.
His sermons motivate believers to search the scripture through careful study and meditation.
Moreso, they cause the hearer to not only cry out for more of the faith-life we're called to live, but more of whatever it takes for Christ to be formed in us.
Surely, Christ does all things well.
Great Sermon! How can a leader say that he loves his country and violates its laws? Ahaz did.
The people follow their leader. America adopted laws to protect citizens. They were the laws of God. But where are we now? Are we seeing the judgment of God through the lens of biblical history?
God cannot pull back on justice. All of his wrath had to come down on his son. His wrath more and more is being revealed in nations.
As for the people of God; the Israel of God? Egypt was the incubation place of Israel. Israel began in Egypt and an exodus by judgment had to take place in order to separate Israel out of Egypt so that the old shell of Egypt had to be destroyed and the new plant, the new holy seed of Israel is taken out of it.
There is so much we can learn from this message. A lot. But beneficial.
Our God never sleeps. Neither does he slumber.
