Proverbs 9:18 (NKJV) — 18 But he does not know that the dead are there, That her guests are in the depths of hell.
Folly’s guests. None of those in the house of folly can be said to be “living.” They are dead, the merest shadow of living people.
Before we were born again, we were “dead in trespasses and sins . . . fulfilling the desires of the flesh and of the mind, and were by nature children of wrath” (Ephesians 2:1, 3).
Yesterday our pastor, Mitchell Bland of The Sanctuary UPC in Hazelwood, Missouri, preached a message titled “Leave the Oxen and Run.” It was a remarkable, soul-stirring message that brought me to tears.
The message is available on the church website at thesanctuaryupc.com, but I wanted to also post it here. The entire service is certainly worth viewing, but if you would like to go directly to Pastor Bland’s message, begin watching at 41:45.
