Sermons from Aberdeen Christian Fellowship

Welcome to the podcast download page for Aberdeen Christian Fellowship, an evangelical church, based on Union Grove in the West end of Aberdeen. We believe that God has an amazing plan for Aberdeen and He wants the local church to be part of it. We invite you to join us.

We meet each Sunday morning for worship at 10:30am, as well as having an evening service at 6:30pm on the third Sunday of each month. Additionally, we have a Bible study and prayer meeting each Tuesday evening from 7:00-8:00pm. We also have various events for young adults and children throughout the week.

Continuing the series on Gideon, Vijay looks at Judges 6.33-7.8. The passage gives us the account where Gideon tests the Lord by putting out the fleece. It also records the incident where the Lord sifts Gideon's troops from and army 32,000 soldiers to that of 300. When Gideon tests the Lord, he does so because he has a distorted view of himself. He underestimates himself. When the Lord sifts down the soldiers, the Lord reminds Gideon that he is in danger of overestimating himself. Ultimately, we are useful to the Lord, not because we have or do not have assets and gifts, but because the Lord is with us. We are completely freed from the temptation to think that our talents or resources are what help us live satisfied and complete lives. It is the presence of the Lord that allows us to live lives that matter.
