In this sermon from Matt Trent, we learn how the Apostle Peter’s personal loyalty clouded his judgment, but also how the Apostle showed humility as he responded correctly to correction.
Now when Peter[a] had come to Antioch, I withstood him to his face, because he was to be blamed; 12 for before certain men came from James, he would eat with the Gentiles; but when they came, he withdrew and separated himself, fearing those who were of the circumcision. And the rest of the Jews also played the hypocrite with him, so that even Barnabas was carried away with their hypocrisy. Galatians 2:1-13
It is easy to blame anyone or anything for the problems we face in life. Israel tried to shirk responsibility for the messes they caused, but the old prophet Hosea had a message for them: “O Israel, you have destroyed yourself” (Hosea 13:9). In this sermon, we are reminded how important it is to own up to our mistakes and look to God as the source of our help. You Have Destroyed Yourself MP3 File Link
We know that God is righteous and God is just. However, a troubling question to Christians (and unbelievers) is as follows: “Is God fair to let a man die and go to hell who has never even once heard the name of Jesus Christ or heard a gospel sermon?”
Evangelist Clint Defrance addresses these questions and more in a wonderful audio sermon entitled “Jesus Christ, the Only Way“ from 2009. Jesus Christ the Only Way MP3 Link
in this sermon from the 2016 Oklahoma New Year’s Meeting, evangelist Bill Ferguson asks a topical question: “How many rights does a dead man have?” Paul wrote to Timothy that he was to be an example that sets forth and exalts Jesus Christ. Our rights are meaningless in the context of serving our Lord.
