23 Oct God’s Word at Work | Part 5
Hebrews 4:12 tells us that,”…the word of God is living and active…”
Here at Mark Driscoll Ministries we are committed to helping get the soul saving, life changing, eternity altering word of God out to the world. Sometimes, people are kind enough to email us and let us know how the Holy Spirit used Bible teaching in their life. We know that any good that happens is by God’s grace and for God’s glory, and we love hearing about both. These testimonies we receive are incredibly encouraging to us and give us opportunities to pray for people and rejoice at God’s work in their life.
So, we thought it would be fun to share some testimonies of God’s Word at work in people’s lives. After a long week, some good news goes a long way. We hope and pray these testimonies cause you to thank God, pray for people, and enjoy God’s word for yourself as you share it with others. Lastly, THANK YOU to everyone who supports this ministry!
This week we are sharing some good news from pastors and ministry leaders:
I live in Florida and I have been following your ministry for quite some time now. I started podcasting… sermons around the time the Real Marriage series was going on. From there on I kept up with the sermons pretty much every week. I wanted to let you know that you were a huge influence in my life. To this day, I still reference your sermons whenever I preach or teach at my local youth groups. Your teachings opened my mind to understanding biblical manhood, discipleship, and even basic reformed doctrines that I did not have a full understanding of.
Because of the two of you my wife and I have a better marriage and have made it through some very dark times.
Because of the two of you I have the courage to preach following Jesus, rather than simply toeing cultural lines.
Because of the two of you I invest in others more than ever before.
Because of what has happened in your ministry, your leaving ministry, and your lessons learned (I have recently seen the Brian Houston interview, and been following what has happened for a while) I am learning from your humility.
I just wanted to encourage you and tell you that some of your teachings have been so integral to my life and walk as a man, husband, worship leader and minister in my church. Honestly, your…series saved my marriage and drove my wife and I to repent, pray and love one another in a biblical, intentional way. I truly thank God for you and Grace for being the open book that I can learn from. I watched your interview with Pastor Brian Houston and was so encouraged by you and also for you. The best is yet to come in Jesus name!
I lead Men’s Ministry…After years of rebellion and debauchery through high school and college, I became a Christian in 2006 and your podcasts were extremely important in my early Christian development, as well as in the development of my marriage and family. I am now happily married…and we are expecting our 3rd child, for which we are deeply thankful.
