Many people are overly criticized and under- affirmed. "But encourage one another daily" (Heb. 3:13)
Regardless of your past, it's never too late for a new beginning in Jesus Christ!
"So is my word that goes out from my mouth: It will not return to me empty, but will accomplish what I desire and achieve the purpose for which I sent it" (Isaiah 55:11). It is both assuring and inspiring to see the Holy Spirit apply God's Word to needy hearts and observe sincere responses resulting in personal spiritual advance! Amid changing and uncertain days: lost people still need to be saved, believers still need to be sanctified, the church still needs to be revived and the pastor still needs to be encouraged. It is an honor to preach God's Word anywhere, anytime to anyone.
