Several years ago, we had the blessing of attending this conference. It has probably been the most influential conference our family has ever participated in. This was the conference that we first heard Paul Washer speak. God used that vessel to help us understand the gospel in a much deeper way. It changed the way that we would parent our younger children in regard to seeking to lead them to Christ. For the first time in our Christian walk, we understood relying and depending on the Spirit of God to do what we could not truly do ourselves. How can a dead man do anything? We as parents, as much as we love our children, do not have the ability either to give life to them.
This past weekend, we had the privilege of spending two days with several other families that challenged and refreshed our souls. It is so good to be with brothers and sisters in the Lord! We are still talking, gleaning and praying over things from this weekend. As several shared how God had worked in their lives to bring them to Him, we were challenged to pray over several people that we know that are still relying on the strength of their flesh to walk out the Christian life. As we were praying this morning, the Lord brought this conference to mind and particularly one of the messages by Paul Washer; The Sufficiency of Scripture and the Gospel.
How excited I was to find that the whole conference can now be downloaded for free. There are literally hours of spiritual encouragement here. They all are worth listening to, but if you can only listen to one, make it The Sufficiency of the Scripture and the Gospel by Paul Washer.
Here is a link to the message by Mr. Washer; The Sufficiency of the Scripture and the Gospel
We are looking forward to relistening to this today ourselves. :-) Hope you will be very blessed and encouraged by all that you hear.
