"...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)

    Preaching the Five Solas

    Preacher: What would you preach if you knew it would be your last sermon?

    I would not need too much time to come up with an answer to that question. My answer would be “the Five Solas of the Gospel."

    This morning I woke to find this encouraging e-mail in my inbox:

    Dear Pastor John,

    I thought you might like to know that I listened to your sermon tonight, “The Five Solas of the Gospel” and was greatly blessed.

    Not only do I like your preaching “style” but I must tell you that I was most blessed by how you captured, and expressed the spirit of the Reformation. It was as if I myself had entered into the story and burned with the same zeal and passion that Martin Luther and the Reformers did.

    As you know, so much of what passes off as Christian preaching today would hardly be considered such by the early church fathers. Thank you so much for preaching and posting a message that I can only describe as a return to the “old paths” — something that the church so desperately needs at this hour.

    May God raise up more men to preach like this, and may He open many more doors for you to preach the Gospel.

    Your friend & sister in Christ,

    And, I truly mean every word of this!"

    Praise the Lord! As I say, it was very encouraging to read this. I pray that the message could be a blessing to others also. It can be heard here. God bless. - JS

    John do you have an MP3 of this or a direct link to the actual file. ?

    Hi John, I've asked the tech expert guy what we have and hope to hear from him soon. Why, what's on your mind?
