David's Digest: A Broken Heart & Godly Fear

Recently, our fellowship has gone through a couple of John Bunyan sermon series, which I thought were excellent, and found them very beneficial; and so, I thought I would mention them here, in case they might be of benefit to someone else.


The Acceptable Sacrifice; Or, The Excellency of a Broken Heart

"John Bunyan's words are delivered with compelling conviction as he passionately portrays the beauty of the only sacrifice that is acceptable to God. With carefully crafted words he describes the wonder and majesty of a heart broken before the Lord. The brokenhearted are not forsaken or ignored, for they are 'His jewels, His beloved.'"

(The narration is a little slow, but the message is worth it!)

Here is an online written version


A Treatise of the Fear of God; Showing What It Is And What It Is Not

"This work distinguishes the nature of man's fear of God, the relationship of this fear to faithfulness, the effects of the fear of God, and clearly draws the line between the fear and the dread of God."

Part 1
Part 2
Part 3

And here is this online written version


I hope you will take the time to go through these, by listening and/or reading, as I believe they are both very important to the heart and life of the Christian. We pray God grant us a broken and contrite heart, and grow in godly (only!) fear of Him!
