“Further In and Deeper Down”

Below are four video clips from a sermon preached by the late Dr. E.K. Bailey, founding pastor of Concord Missionary Baptist Church of Dallas, Texas. Entitled, “Further In and Deeper Down”, the message is based on the Scripture passage in 2 Corinthians 12:7-10:

So to keep me from becoming conceited because of the surpassing greatness of the revelations, a thorn was given me in the flesh, a messenger of Satan to harass me, to keep me from becoming conceited. Three times I pleaded with the Lord about this, that it should leave me. But he said to me, “My grace is sufficient for you, for my power is made perfect in weakness.” Therefore I will boast all the more gladly of my weaknesses, so that the power of Christ may rest upon me. For the sake of Christ, then, I am content with weaknesses, insults, hardships, persecutions, and calamities. For when I am weak, then I am strong.

The first clip begins somewhere after the beginning of the message, so the entire message is not here. However, what is here in these four clips blessed me. I hope these clips may be a blessing to you, too.
