SEBTS Chapel - Jesse Burton Weatherspoon January 4, 1962

  • The service begins with reading the lyrics of the hymn “What A Friend We Have in Jesus” (00:00-01:05) and prayer (01:06-05:05). There was no introduction for the speaker, Dr. Jesse Burton Weatherspoon, but he was Visiting Professor of Preaching. He begins by reading Jeremiah 45 and expounding on the text (05:06-13:14). He warns of our concern for self when circumstances in life close in around us. He also exhorts us to then see God as involved, not as we may think, but as He really is (13:15-17:39). He then warns of our motives in seeking good things, such as God’s glory, testing to see if we are wanting these things for ourselves or for God purely (17:40-23:04). He ends his time in prayer (23:05-23:48).
