In some areas I am needlessly shy. In some areas I am annoyingly vocal. In some areas I think I have the proper balance. One of my areas that I am shy is in the area of broadcasting my preaching and teaching. I have recently been convicted about this. (See my post on Cinderella dressing up). I guess part of me just hates getting picked apart. I think I may be a closet perfectionist. Or maybe it is pride. That has to go. This quote by James Denney has stuck with me:
"No man can bear witness to Christ and to himself at the same time.
No man can give the impression that he himself is clever and that Christ is
mighty to save."
I write all of this to say that the sermons that I preach on Wednesday nights will now be available for you to listen to...thanks to my good friend David. David has taken the time to record the messages, edit them, and post them online. Everything is really rough right now. This is no fault of David's but a fault of our equipment. Currently I am using three mic's set up around me because I cannot use only a pulpit mic (I move too much). We are in the process of securing a lapel mic or one of those ear-piece ones (so I can look like
Britney Spears John Piper).
The sermon's will be available on the sidebar. Or you can go here at least for now. This week's sermon is on Ephesians 2:11-22. If you are curious as to what everyone was laughing at in the beginning it is this:
No clue who that poor kid is but I bet he got picked on in grade school.
