A couple of weeks ago I preached for the first time after the elders at my church were kind enough to ask me if I’d like to contribute to a series called “God’s Sovereign Saving Grace.” This was a series on the Doctrines of Grace that has spanned a few month’s worth of Sunday nights. Sermons have been led by a variety of the men of the church–the pastor, elders, future preachers (it seems our church has an inordinate number of seminarians…) and yours truly. I was given the topic of Perseverance or Preservation. Having never preached before, this was a new experience for me but one I enjoyed more than I might have thought. The format was quite informal and I tried to gear it to those who had little familiarity with the doctrine.
So here it is: The Doctrine of Perseverance (if you see a screen asking you to subscribe to SermonAudio simply click “Later” to bypass it).
If you are interested in the subject matter, you may find the whole series worth listening to. Again, the format is informal and the actual teaching is usually only about half an hour. There is typically a time of questions and answers afterwards.
