Encouraging Message! It is a blessing to hear this young man preach from God's Word.
Jacob, I'm glad you had this opportunity and look forward to hear you preach again both here at the WCC and wherever the Lord leads you.
Great Sermon! Thank you for your teaching and exhortation concerning our attitude toward the Word of God. What a sad commentary on our lives that we despise God's Word through neglect.
Lord, incline our hearts to hunger and thirst for your Word more than all the vain things of this world.
Good Teaching! The time and effort you spent researching and studying this topic is evident. You did a good job presenting the material and showing how it applies to the church. I was blessed as I listened to this message. Thanks for taking seriously the call to teach the Word of God.
Correction It has come to my attention that I made a mistake concerning the illustration of the Moravian missionaries toward the end of the message. I said the missionaries' destination was Indonesia but "the story goes that when the first two young missionaries boarded the ship in Copenhagen to sail for the West Indies, perhaps never to return (20 out of the first 29 missionaries to St. Thomas and St. Croix died in those first years), they lifted their hands as if in sacred pledge and called out to their friends on shore, 'May the Lamb that was slain receive the reward of His suffering!'"
I found the above quote from a message by John Piper at
Correction In the introduction to this message I said that there were other men like Huss, Wycliff and Tyndale who laid a foundation for Luther and the Reformation. Although Tyndale (1494-1587) was a key figure in the Reformation in England, [he was a contemperary to Luther (1483-1546)] he did not lay the foundation for Luther. A good resource on the Reformation is The Hall of Church History at www.spurgeon.org/~phil/hall.htm
encouraging sermon. Thanks brother White for bringing before us a most practical aspect of God's word. The Bible is not a book of fairy stories, it deals with real issues, and real people,and real situations, which the saints face ,and often find hard,or bewildering to accept,as they live their lives, and are led by the Lord through this barren wilderness, that is not our home.
I really liked the way this preacher expounded ,very simply the verses from Corinthians that he used as the basis of the sermon, and applied them in an appropiate way to those who find themselves in the various situations mentioned.Again, one has to thank our God for those who preach faithfully, and for this glorious providence of sermonaudio, for making these available to a wider audience.
Great Sermon! "Maybe if I was married," or "Maybe if I was divorced" ... I could be closer to God. Don White gives other examples, too. This sermon was a good reminder that, indeed, we do see the grass greener on the other side -- but often we need to heed the Apostle Pauls' admonition, "Let every man abide in the same calling wherein he was called." Worth hearing.
Great Sermon! Great Message! Right on! A subject that every Christian needs to think about and make some serious decisions. I am preaching tonight about that subjet and this message was inspiring! Thank you Sir for preaching the "Whole Counsel of God"!
