Hello all, My name is Isaac Dillman and I may just be the youngest person on this site. I am 15 years old and have just recently received a wonderful blessing. I have been called to be a pastor. With this calling I also received a challenge, the challenge God gave me is the same challenge he gives all Christians, to join with my fellow believers and start one heck of a revival. I came upon this site when I was watching a sermon posted by SermonIndex on youtube. I was reading the description where it said that one word could describe this site: Revival. I knew immediately that I was to join this community of believers. I would like everyone to know that just because I am 15 years old does not mean that I have not faced hardships. I was once a hopeless addict, not to drugs or drinking, but to something far worse that I would rather not mention in my very first post on this website.I look forward to many delightful, educational, and most of all awakening conversations in my future.
Welcome to the SermonIndex website, may God bless you as you benefit from these free resources offered. If there is anything I can help you with please let me know.

Welcome Isaac Dillman, to SermonIndex!Praise God for directing your path and on your calling to preach the Gospel of Christ.
Amen, brother. Stay serious with the Lord and seek him only, and you will end as well as you seem to have begun.
I'm 17 and know what you mean. Folks have entirely way too low expectations for young people. An EXCELLENT read is found on http://www.therebelution.com/books/So go for it! And God be with you...
Hi Isaac!!!Wonderful to meet you here! You are very very welcome. In serving the Lord and having fellowship with each other the age thing can fall away. (I am much older than you are by the way, already gray :-))You are so blessed to know (in your young age) the Lord called you to serve him.Young men are sometimes honored by Gd with great gifts. Thinking off David, Samuel, Solomon, Daniel (and his companions) and Joseph....Timothy?And think about King Josia who was even 8 years old when the Lord started using him
. May you give the Lord the first place in your thinking, in your (young)life. Let Him form you as clay I believe you can make the difference in your generation by serving Jesus and by being a true disciple. ..Like Paul was saying to Timothy
You can set an example
Walk your talk
On SI you will find so many ways that will help you on your way.. Great teachings and Bible studysAnd believers to share with. 1 Timothy 4:12 Don't let anyone think less of you because you are young. Be an example to all believers in what you say, in the way you live, in your love, your faith, and your purity.New Living Translation 2007 Do not let anyone look down on you because you are young, but be an example for other believers in your speech, behavior, love, faithfulness, and purity.International Standard Version 2008Same I want to say to you Savedtoserve...See you..browny
Welcome Isaac. You sound very mature for your age. Also, if you were addicted to porn at one time i see no reason to be ashamed of that now. And if anyone on here would make you feel ashamed then shame on them. There are plenty of Christians who are struggling with it even now and if they only felt like they could confess it and receive support without being shunned or judged it would lessen the hold that porn has on them. We are all sinners.
