Today’s classic sermon is a most precious one to me, as it’s seemingly followed me on a number of different phones I’ve had through the years and I’ve listened to it countless times. The sermon was recorded some three weeks after our beloved Pastor Jan crossed over the Jordan. When a great crushing comes upon our lives, what is our response to that great pain, whether it be the death of a loved one as it was for Pastor Ray, a major health concern, or some other crushing circumstance? God’s heart is to allow this crushing to allow the flowing out to others in self-sacrificing love. That’s radically different than a cheap, sentimental love that costs us nothing.
