I like you, rarely remember my dreams. I have a feeling you had that dream because you were watching Passion 2013 last night before bed. Just my thoughts.

Well written and thought out. Loved reading this. Thanks, Jeremy.

As usual, I thoroughly enjoyed this podcast. I'm with you, Jeremy...I too, have been politics free for months. It's hard to tune it out with this being election season, but I have a natural ability to "not hear" what I do not want to hear. lol. I liked when you said "Our president is a reflection of us", so very true. We are getting what we deserve, no doubt. I trust in the sovereignty of our Creator and I know that He is in control and will allow into office who He will allow. I will not be voting this year as my political leanings do not line up with either candidate and I'm ok with that decision.
Like Brad said "Party politics is different from biblical Christianity". It's taken me many years to grasp the truth that all conservatives are not Christians. Just like all liberals are not Satan worshippers. I live and conduct my life with a biblical world view. I love this country and I will do all I need to do to be a good citizen, but as far as me and my house...my allegiance is to God and His infallible Word.
Thanks again for another great post.

Enjoy the cruise, Jeremy. You will certainly go into workaholic withdrawal symptoms on the ship. It will be good for you....I hope. Will certainly miss your tweets over the next week.

@Jeremy Sarber @louisvillebobby I understand completely. It can be quite time consuming. I think you made the right choose staying with Twitter. (I may have a selfish intent there)

Jeremy, this post is me 3 years ago. You stuck it out longer than I could have. Kuddos. I never cared for FB either. Twitter on the other hand is perfect for me. Glad to see you are not leaving Twitter, because it wouldn't be the same without you!
I can relate to this post in more ways than one. Before my conversion, I was an enemy of God all the while not realizing it. Since God has saved me, there are still times that I open His Word and am amazed at passages I read today that when I read before I just didn't see the truth. I thank our most High God for His saving grace and opening my eyes to His truth.

Beautifully thought out and well written. It's so true that the real enemy has a way of making believers turn against each other over the most mundane of things. You're the kind of Preacher I would be honored to learn from. You have a blessed congregation there in Angier.

All 12 reasons are so true. I was going to point out that one reason was greater than another but all 12 are correct. Great post, Jeremy. Love the direction of the newly transformed blog!

@jeremysarber Thanks, Jeremy. Trust me I'm no example to follow, but I appreciate the encouraging words. We are all trying to stay the course until it is finished and we all have our own way of overcoming the idols in our lives.

I really like the new layout. I love the intro music choice too. I went through a period in my life a few years ago where my eyes were opened to the idols in my life. It was possessions. So I made a conscious effort to give "things" away. If a friend or family member was over visiting and they liked something they saw, I would make sure they went home with it. I know that seems a little extreme, but it was my way of accepting the fact that I didn't need whatever it was that I was giving away.
Now, I'm not saying if you come visit and take a liking to my TV, you're leaving with it. It was other stuff...just stuff that I had been collecting. It taught me to let go of making idols out of things. To quit cherishing things of this world. I still struggle with turning so many things into idols, (as we all do. We are natural born idol makers) but as long as I am aware of this, I feel I am better able to keep it under guard. Anyway, I have learned to keep my focus on treasures in heaven as opposed to treasures of this temporary world.

Very well delivered. I needed to hear this message. I currently belong to a reformed body of believers and have issues with the way we do communion. We are given an option of wine or grape juice. I had a brother in Christ visit our services a few months ago that is a recovering alcoholic. I never thought about the wine during communion being a stumbling block for him, but it was as he dipped his bread in the "wrong" goblet. That has weighed heavy on my heart for quite some time. In my opinion, it is a perfect example of christian Liberty gone wrong. It offended a brother. I know that may seem childish of me to have an issue with such a small event, but it wasn't a small event for my friend. Thank you for sharing this podcast from Pastor Ben, Jeremy.

This post reminded me of a question I was asked in a job interview I had a couple years ago. After the initial interview was over, the HR manager looked at me and said "what is your purpose in life?". I was dumbfounded because I knew what my purpose was but was not sure how honest I should be with this person. After a couple seconds of hesitation, I told her that my purpose was to live for Christ and to show all that I come in contact with the love of Christ in my life. This was a secular job and there had been nothing of our beliefs brought up, so I figured I blew my shot at the job considering I didn't know where this person was or what their beliefs were. I was offered the job on the spot.
I place my trust in God that He will lead me where He wants me, and as long as I stay faithful and keep my focus in life on Him, He will provide. That is what I seek.

I will be the first to admit that my understanding of the end times is messed up. I was raised believing the "Left Behind Series" kind of eschatology. You know, where the anti-Christ will come and dwell for 7 years after the rapture of the church and so on. It has taken many years for me to get where I am now in my understanding of God's word. God has been patient with me in revealing His truth, probably because I'm stubborn or just plain stupid. I am finally starting to grasp and understand that the only event we are waiting for now is the second coming of Christ (and I'm not talking about the rapture).
Good post, Joe.

Good post, Jeremy. Just keep preaching the truth. "You can't please everyone" applies to everyone. Whether you are the head of your congregation or the boss at work or a parent or even a friend....sometimes we have to make decisions that some will not agree with or sometimes we make mistakes but in the end as long as you are honest and true to your convictions most people will understand.

Good post, Jeremy and well said. I don't fit in the red or blue box either, guess that's why we mesh so well.
