Click here http://www.lightofthemaster.com/ , and then click on ‘sermons’ (top of page towards the right side) – yesterday’s sermon, Nov. 21 should be cued up, just click on the start arrow.
(the sermon is about 20 minutes long, so you might want to wait until you have the time)
Listen. Do you hear the law presented as something you should be doing in order for you to be a proper Christian? Is the law presented as a way to make you better? Or, is the law presented as a way to describe the way that we really ARE ? (As a mirror, to reflect our sinfulness and our need of a savior).
Then listen for God’s promises. Are they presented with string(s) attached? Must you DO anything for the promises to be good and valid for you? Or are they just handed over to you, the unworthy, free of charge?
I’d like to know what you think. I’d like to know if you can detect a difference in this preaching, in contrast to the typical preaching in an Evangelical church.
Thanks for your thoughts.
