For complete transcript click on link above. Here are some points from the message:

  • A Divine Miracle in Us. God is wholly engaged in bringing your life and this world to its appointed destiny of holiness. And this full engagement of God in the process of your sanctification is no limitation on yourengagement, but is in fact it’s the creation of your engagement. He works the miracle of sanctification; you act the miracle. He produces it; you perform it. And if you don’t use your will to act the miracle, there is no miracle. God’s sovereign enablement of holiness does not contradict the act of duty, it creates it.

–When God fills you with compassion, it is you who exercise your will to feed the hungry and clothe the naked and visit the prison and take in the refugee.

–When God gives you merciful humility, it is you who turn the other cheek.

–When God inclines your heart to his word, it is you who get out of bed early in the morning to read your Bible.

–When God gives you the courage and love, it is you who share Christ with your neighbor.

–When God makes his glory more satisfying than lust, it’s you who turns away from pornography.

–When God gives you a sweet satisfaction in your future reward, you are the one who blesses your enemies and does not curse them.
