Holy Anguish

On Sunday at Cornerstone we heard an amazing sermon, I just thought I would share it with you.
It's the first one at the top, titled "Holy Anguish"

Also, Francis showed this in the middle of his sermon, but apparently it doesn't come up on the podcast so watch it either before or after you watch the sermon. David Wilkerson's sermon called "A Call to Anguish"

It was pretty crazy that God brought this message into my life this particular Sunday because I had been struggling with this same thing all weekend at work - In being a good example of Christ to my aunt and the other people working in her restaurant, but I was always too ashamed to bring Him into our conversation whenever I got the chance. Ultimately, God really spoke to me through Francis and David Wilkerson's video clip encouraging my heart to break more toward the unsaved knowing where they are going to spend eternity and making it more urgent to save them from that destiny.

It was really cool after church on Sunday night, a couple of friends, my brother and I all went out to a park and just prayed for a long time - that God would give us the heartache necessary to love others enough to tell them about God. A very cool thing to pray for. Hope this sermon stirs up in each one of you a love for others that is completely and supernaturally God.


  1. I've watched both the sermon and the Wilkerson message, and it caused me to grieve, but not quite to the point of anguish, I'm afraid. Sunday we will watch both in our service at the house. Pray that our hearts will be broken for the things that break God's heart.

    We're praying for you, Mike, and your friends, that God will use you mightily to advance His kingdom in the days to come.

  2. Hannah, I really enjoy your posts. I particularly enjoyed this one, because I feel like I need a greater passion for the lost, as well. God bless.

  3. any idea what the you tube video he mentioned was (how much do you have to hate a person...)?

    Thanks - Greg
