No Other Gods

Last week Phil Johnson preached at Grace Community Church in the stead of John MacArthur, who has been recovering from knee replacement surgery and also a recent herniated disc in his back. (Be praying for Pastor John.)

Phil's sermon was from Exodus 20:3, the first commandment. It was a magnificent sermon. The man spoke from God, and the conviction and the weightiness that he conveyed -- so absent from so many modern pulpits -- were appropriate as a man speaking from God to His people. Phil's message exalted the Lord in our hearts, and encouraged me personally all the more to delight in Him and Him alone, and thus have no other gods before Him.

I wanted to share it with you all, as I believe the sense of the majesty of God that is conveyed would be a blessing to anyone listening. I think it is a wonderful call to worship God for His awful holiness, which helps us sanctify Christ as Lord in our own hearts, as well as excite us to help others do the same.
