Growth In A Time Of Persecution

powered by Hipcast.com

Running Time: 28 minutes/ 25 seconds.

This sermon was preached sometime in 2007 at Champaign, Il, where I regularly preached Sunday evenings.  I rerecorded the introduction and the reading of scripture and then went to the taped sermon. There is some interference at the beginning of the sermon but it does not last long.  This sermon highlights the fact that God has given us everything we need, EVERYTHING, to overcome the world, the flesh and the devil; through the indwelling of the Holy Spirit in believers we are more powerful than all the spiritual forces arrayed against us.  Also, no matter how mature we become in the faith, there is always room for growth, even among the entirely sanctified. I wish I was more precise in my description of sanctification here.  The tape ran out before the sermon was completed.

Approaching God

powered by Hipcast.com

Running Time: 28minutes/59 seconds

This sermon was preached in 9/04 at the Church where I was serving as pastor at the time. This is one of my early sermons and so I was not as precise in my language as I wished to be, yet I wanted listeners to be able to hear one of the few recordings of me preaching to a live congregation. Just about every post on this blog will be recorded at home over the phone. I edited the message because of time constraints; the reading of the Scripture was read over the phone and then the recorded sermon was played on a tape recorder. I do hope those who hear this message are helped to develop a more Biblical view of God in addition to being aided in acquiring a boldness when approaching the Throne of Grace!

This site is under construction.

This blog will be 100% audio. It will contain sermons, devotions and quotes on spiritual topics that I hope will be edifying.
