"...if anyone makes the assistance of grace depend on the humility or obedience of man and does not agree that it is a gift of grace itself that we are obedient and humble, he contradicts the Apostle who says, "What have you that you did not receive?" (1 Cor. 4:7), and, "But by the grace of God I am what I am" (1 Cor. 15:10). (Council of Orange: Canon 6)

    Engaging Culture - John 17:17-19 by Arturo G. Azurdia III

    This last weekend I had the great privelege to attend a men's conference at Estacada Christian Church which was led by Dr. Arturo G. Azurdia III. He delivered three phenomenal sermons, which he and the church have generously given me permission to post at in MP3 format.

    All three sermons were an exposition of a section of the High Priestly Prayer in John 17:17-19. He pointed out many things in the Text I had not previously considered, especially with regard to our Lord's prayer to sanctify us that we might engage the culture. I especially want to recommend the third sermon which is one of the best expositions of particular atonement I have ever heard. I highly recommend all three sermons and hope you benefit as much as I did.

    May the Lord richly bless you by opening your heart and ears to His word preached through a gifted servant.

    Sermon II is 1/2 the length (1/2 the size, and stops abruptly) of the others. Could be incomplete? Please check/ update. Why? Because it really is good, I'd hate to miss 1 minute, let alone 30...



    Unfortunately, discovered yesterday that the local church which recorded the conference had a technical glitch and the last half of #2 somehow did not get recorded. We are very sorry to announce..
