A Faithful Proclamation!

Praise God, for He has heard and answered our prayers through the preaching of His Word! Our guest speaker last night, Paul Washer, delivered a bold, clear gospel presentation from Romans 3.23-25 (click here to hear the sermon). We had a full house, some driving from as far as 9 hours away just to hear this faithful man of God proclaim the amazing gospel.

I will leave it to the reader to listen to the recording and discover the rich blessings inherent in the message, so I will refrain from commenting on the sermon itself. However, I will share one of the most profound things that impacted me yesterday, which took place after the sermon ended. In addition to the weightiness of the message, I was struck by the number of people who lined-up afterward to speak with Paul Washer, many of whom were to drive a great distance to return home that night. In fact, some waited well beyond midnight for their opportunity to speak with this humble man of God and he honored each one, taking up to 15 minutes at a time to get to know each person who approached him. It was a great demonstration by those in line of the hunger of the truly regenerate for God-centered, Christ-exaulting preaching, as well as a beautiful testimony by Paul Washer of faithful and selfless sacrifice offered to our Lord and His people.

I praise God for raising up such a man who unashamedly proclaims the full counsel of God’s Word (holding-back/sugar-coating nothing), including the “scorn” of the gospel, which truly is “the power of God for salvation” (Romans 1.16). May God be pleased to raise up more God-fearing men of this caliber to fill the pulpits of our wayward nation in order to proclaim the riches of His glory for His honor. Amen.

About Elizabeth

I am a sinner, saved by grace striving to increase in the knowledge of my Savior and His precious Word each day. The reader should know that there are a few presuppositions with which I approach this blog: 1) I believe in the biblical gospel, which basically purports that all mankind is born under the curse of sin (due to the sin of Adam and Eve in the garden of Eden). Therefore, man is separated from God and can have no relationship with God because He is perfectly holy, not even able to look upon sin. Unfortunately, God is also perfectly just and must not only separate Himself from sin, but must also punish it. In order to reconcile man to Himself, God, the Father, sent God, the Son, down to earth to live as a man and take our sins upon Himself on the cross. While on the cross, God, the Son, bore the full weight of the wrath of God, the Father, against our sins in order that we who believe in Him might be set free from the curse of our sin. God, the Son, Jesus Christ, died as a propitiation for our sin in order to appease God, the Father's, holy and just character, redeem us from sin, and reconcile those who believe in this gospel to God, the Father. 2) I am primarily writing to those who already believe in this biblical gospel. In other words, this blog is not focused on evangelizing the lost, but edifying believers. 3) I believe that the Christian Bible is the very word of God. Therefore, it is completely inerrant, infallible, sufficient, and authoritative in the life of a believer.
