It's only as he works through us that we can do anything; it's only as he works in others that their lives are touched. This message can be heard at

Yesterday, at Redeemer, we heard a message based on Isaiah 5:1-7. In this text we see that God has done everything possible for mankind; there's nothing more God can do to convince man that he's God and that he should place his trust in the Lord. And because of this, if people continue in their rebellion, if they continue to turn from the Lord, he will justly pour his wrath upon them. This message can be heard at
