,OK, thanks very much for trying to look that up for me. Appreciated.
,Tom, are you able to name the preacher you cite in your third point? For preaching here in the UK, someone is bound to ask me who I was talking about. Thanks.
Hi Mark, I do not know exactly where the illustration came from or who the illustration is about. I have found it used in a sermon by Dennis Marquardt "The Door To Serving" and it can also be found in a Bread of Life Devotional - Forgiveness - Our Greatest Need. Neither of them mention the preacher by name.
Upon further research I found that the illustration is used in a publication entitled: Hearts of Iron, Feet of Clay, By Gary Inrig - No one says who the preacher was. Discovery House is the publisher.
Read your sermon on Father forgive... with interest. I enclose a an extract from a pamphlet I prepared recently (Forgiveness - Full, Partial, Conditional, or Unconditional?) dealing with the word 'forgive' which bring bring fresh thinking to the subject. ---However, in that verse the word ‘forgive' is best translated suffer (permit) as in ‘suffer little children...' (Matt. 19:14) or, alternatively, let be, as in ‘Let be, let us see whether…' (Matt.27:49).
Thank you for your insights. Forgiveness does come in layers and various aspects.... Blessings.
Fantastic sermon, I am a minister in training and I've agreed to do a sermon this Sunday on chapter 9 of "The Story" and it's about the book of Ruth. Now, I've been praying and racking my brain trying to figure out what this story is about and kept coming up short. This sermon helps me out a ton seeing that I've only got a day and a half to prepare and I'm moving tomorrow. I think I filled my plate a bit to full. Thank you sir and God bless you.
