He was blind, this preacher friend and in his 70s. His eyes appeared normal. But, he was blind, and he was crying. “David,” he said, “I want so much to see the day you were talking about.” He was speaking about seeing a great revival sweep this land.
That’s what my subject had been at the ministers’ meeting he attended. This older minister’s sensitive spirit touched me. His tears were beautiful. Well past retirement age, now he preachers Sundays at a small trailer park. It’s volunteer work for him. Yet, he wants to live long enough to see revival sweep the church.
Oh, Lord, give us more men like this. And let him be like old Simeon in Scripture, who was spared until your special day of revelation came.
Believing that you will benefit significantly from reading it, I sincerely invite you to read my latest book entitled The Sermon Sucking Black Hole—Why You Can’t Remember on Monday What Your Minister Preached on Sunday. This book is available at Amazon.com by clicking here.
This book gives some solid tips to the people sitting in the congregation to help them remember what you’ve said from the pulpit when they come to worship services in the church where you serve as pastor.
