Heeding the Call

He was a nice-looking man, well-educated and now a new father. And that’s one reason he didn’t want to be gone for a month. I met him in India.

He continued, “The people in the north aren’t as friendly as where I come from. Their food is different. Last time on the train, I was robbed. But this is my calling. Not nearly as many people in North India know about Christ as they do in South India, where I live.”

This young Indian Christian knew something many believers in the United States have missed—that serving Christ often involves taking up a cross, experiencing a bit of suffering.

I often think of that young evangelist when I get tired and maybe when I’m inconvenienced a bit. I’m glad he’s in the cause. I want to be more like he is.


I am grateful that I continue to hear how God is using 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.

In this book, I offer some solid tips to the people sitting in the congregation to help them remember what their pastor has said from the pulpit.
