In yesterday's Life with Lynnie (LwL) entry, I wrote about worshipping at home, and not with a church group. After all, I am not yet well.
I mentioned that I listen to sermons, online. That's where I found one of the best sermons I've recently heard. Online, I mean. While the sermon was online, I must admit that a friend on Facebook (FB) sent it to me, in a message.
It was a Youtube (audio only) clip of Paul Washer entitled, Examine Yourself: https://www.youtube.com/watch?feature=player_embedded&v=Ky8dTyPpiAo#
Please... if you never, ever listen to another sermon of Paul Washer's, please... listen to this one.
Paul Washer is one of many preachers/teachers whose recordings and videos are posted online. Unfortunately, not every preacher/teacher professes Biblical truth. But, Paul Washer, certainly does in this sermon.
And, by listening, he helped me to reflect upon myself and answer the question. Am I truly saved?
While some people may question why we need to do this, I have not. After all, God told us in 2 Corinthians 13:5, "Examine yourselves, whether ye be in the faith; prove your own selves. Know ye not your own selves, how that Jesus Christ is in you, except ye be reprobates?"
In the sermon, Paul Washer brought up many interesting points. Some things that I believe, and some things that I have written about, that get tossed aside by those who don't read and/or study God's Word, the Bible.
Knowing that this is a great sermon, I do not want to go into too much detail about it. If I did, it might ruin it for you. And, I truly believe you need to hear it for yourself.
I will say that in one part, he spoke about something that happened with a relative of his.
Wow! Could I relate to what he said! Why? Because, I've done this, myself!
Be still my heart.
Please know that I care about you. I care about whether or not I will meet with you in heaven.
And, please know that I pray for you.
Until next time...
