Weekend Words of Wisdom {8.11.12}

Throughout the week I listen to .mp3 sermons by all sorts of preachers while I work. While I listen, sometimes something the preacher says catches my attention and I write it down — that is where these new “weekend words of wisdom” posts come in.

I’m going to share with you the quotes and outlines I write down throughout the week. I figure if they’re a help to me, perhaps they’ll be a blessing to you as well.

The sermons I listened to this week were:

  1. “Are You Serious?” by Phil Kidd
  2. “The Best Life” by Cary Schmidt
  3. “Rejected Sacrifices” by Mark Rogers
  4. “I Shall Find Grace” by Brian McBride
  5. “No Condemnation” by Dean McNeese
  6. “What Never Changes” by Tony Shirley
  7. “Christian Life Demands Change” by Will Galkin
  8. “Consider Your Calling” by Cary Schmidt
