Good Morning

Today will be a good day. My children are here from Montgomery and Lebanon (Tennessee).  My grandson, Benton, is playing in the floor with Grandee. My grandson, Brooks, is having his birthday party this afternoon. I don’t have a preaching place tomorrow, but I hope to eventually.

My goal today and each day must be to be a little more like Jesus. Christ must be formed in me, as Paul taught. This is always an ongoing process, a little more, a little more.

With my children here, I have a special opportunity to influence them. They will note my behavior and be influenced by it, no matter how old they are or how old I am.  Parental teaching never ends. I wish more people understood this. I wish I did a better job at it.

Constant watchfulness, constant prayer, and constant meditation on the word of God are my allies.  Pray for me.

Lord Jesus Christ, Son of God,  have mercy on me, a sinner.

    John, don’t concern yourself about not having a pulpit. Some people pay more attention to the voice of God outside the pulpit. Just saying…………listen to the small still voice, He will show you great things God has in store for you.

    I had rather see a sermon than to hear one any day!
