The Martin Luther King Jr. Speech

Martin Luther King Jr. The day before Martin Luther King, Jr. was assassinated, he delivered his last speech to a crowd of striking sanitation workers in Memphis, Tennessee. The address is known as the “I’ve Been to the Mountaintop” speech, and like many King speeches and sermons, it illustrates his knack for taking famous Bible stories and brushing off the dust of over-familiarity that has settled on them.

When I was younger I remember my pastor preaching a sermon from Malachi 3. Here is that passage: Malachi 3:8-12 8 “Will a mere mortal rob God? Yet you rob me. “But you ask, ‘How are we robbing you?’ “In tithes and offerings. 9 You are under a curse—your whole nation—because you are robbing me. 10 Bring the whole tithe into the storehouse, that there may be food in my house. Test me in this,” says the Lord Almighty, “and see if I will not throw open the floodgates of heaven and…

Further to Joel’s sermon on prayer….

Hi Cornerstone. I found our third sermon on prayer, “Why doesn’t God answer my prayers”, to be practical, inspiring and theologically responsible. Thank you Joel for your work on this message. When Joel began to preach about the distance of God near the end of his sermon, I was reminded of one of Dr. Ravi Zacharias’s best sermons that I had ever heard. This link will take you to part 1 of this sermon… Enjoy! http://rzim.org/just-thinking-broadcasts/mind-the-gap-part-1-of-4-2 Dave Kenny
