Sermon - The Joy of Discipleship
The result of regeneration (or the new birth) is that a person sees real things with new eyes. The things that he sees were always there but his old eyes couldn't see them. The new birth gives us the sight to see the kingdom of heaven (John 3:3). Fundamentally, the person sees Jesus Christ as a Treasure and Pearl of Great Price. So great is the valuing of Christ that a person JOYFULLY gives up everything to gain Him.
My sermon last Sunday looked at these two parables -- Matthew 13:44-46.
Here is my sermon audio from May 31, 2009.
