I believe that it is important to always keep the things of God always before us. Of course, you should do this by praying, reading your Bible and fellowshipping with other believers at church. But that shouldn’t be all of “God” you get! One way that I try to put the Word of God in me is by listening to podcast and sermon videos online. I have an old cellphone that I use as a podcast catcher and download podcasts while I’m on a wireless connection.
One of my favorite podcasts is The Brooklyn Tabernacle Church. I have enjoyed reading and listening to Pastor Cymbala preach and teach on the things of God since I first heard a pastor’s conference tape series (yes I said tapes) that were the basis of his first book, Fresh Wind, Fresh Fire. The funny thing is that I used to subscribe to his weekly tape series years ago. The Brooklyn Tabernacle now posts some of their sermons as webcasts and all of their sermons as podcasts.
The sermon that I’m linking to right now is a very important idea for Christians to grasp. The description reads – “In this message, Pastor Cymbala presents truth from Philippians 4, that if applied, will absolutely change and transform your life. Listen carefully. Phil 4:8-9 (NIV)”
I hope the sermon is a blessing to you as it was to me. You can listen to it below.
8 Finally brothers, whatever is true, whatever is honorable, whatever is just,whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is commendable—if there is any moral excellence and if there is any praise—dwell on these things. 9 Do what you have learned and received and heard and seen in me, and the God of peace will be with you. Philippians 4:8-9 HCSB
