As we sat in our Czech church this morning listening to a sermon about Jesus' prayer in John 17 (through the help of a translator), our pastor sat down and a short video began to play entitled - "Můj Král - My King".
I was encouraged by three things from the video.
- First, I understood a lot of the Czech sentences (they were short and simple, but a sign of language progress nonetheless).
- Second, because I recognized the content of the words, I knew them to be words translated from a famous 1976 sermon by S.M. Lockeridge.
- Third, I was encouraged once again by how similar my own preaching and philosophy of ministry is to our pastor here. I too have used this video in sermons as a tool to help us meditate rightly on the supremacy and glory of King Jesus.
I hope both these videos (in Czech and English) will encourage you as you meditate on Christ Our King this Holy Week:
