This is a first for me.
I am uploading a “Podcast”.
I wish I could say it were mine, but it’s not.
I wish I could even tell you whose it is, but I’ll not.
He would not wish it so. Rather, he would have you focus on the words alone, without any distractions of himself, his career, accomplishments, or credentials. Therefore, simply judge the “words”, not the biography of the speaker.
There is a great deal of really healthy lively discussion around two topics these days among committed brethren in Christ, that I’ve been “pondering heavy”. This sermon just resonated deeply in my heart when I heard this, that I simply had to share this here in this way… without trying to edit, synthesize, or re-speak what was said.
The two topics in my mind/heart were/are:
“Discipleship: What is that and how do we promote it?”
“How do we rightly deal with differences of view, among committed servants and brethren in the Lord?”
When ministers start to think, “I am ‘more right’ than that other minister, and it is important for me to ‘fix’ him/her…” are we not re-stating, in 21st Century theology, “Lord, please set me…” [and those who believe just like *I* do]… “at Your left and right hands when You sit on Your throne!”?
Let these words from an old friend, resonate for you… [33 minutes, I think. Great investment of heartbeats.]
