Pastor in Quincy, IL
It is my aim in life to add my testimony to the cloud of witnesses who together proclaim the glory of God. (Hebrews 12:1)
God has called and gifted me for pastoral ministry. Over the years He has placed me in situations which required me to trust in Him and not in my abilities in order to serve Him effectively. For example, during my time in Africa, I often got sick while preaching in the streets. Sometimes I barely had enough strength to speak, yet someone would ask me about Jesus and how to be saved. In those moments I was only able to continue sharing by the grace of God. But it seems to me that in those moments of utter weakness, the Lord used me the most. (II Corinthians 12:9)
I am a man of poor character apart from Christ, a man who was lost but now is found, a man who was arrogant and self-righteous but who now shutters to think that my righteousness was so filthy it deserved only eternal damnation in hell. (Isaiah 64:6) Only in Christ do I find a righteousness which enables me to have a relationship with God. (I Corinthians 1:30)
Only God saves, and I rest only in the assurance that He loved me and has called me His child. (John 1:12) My prayer for you is that you would have that same testimony.
