May we all be encouraged in our service to our Lord; He is worthy. I certainly do not claim to have an understanding of the fullness of the glory due to Him and if it were not for His revelation to us, we would be left to our imagination of even the smallest aspect of His glory. So may we be deeply thankful for His revelation of Himself to us. It is so immense, we scarcely “scratch the surface.”
When I was in Seminary and learned that my preaching mentor had been in the ministry for 50+ years, I said to him, “you must have worked through so much of the Bible to have preached so many sermons.” He replied: “I feel like I have only scratched the surface.” I never forgot it. And especially now in November when I realize that this year is now the 35th year of having been ordained as Minister of Word and Sacrament. I have certainly only begun to scratch the surface! But I am thankful to the Lord and His grace, that He took this farm boy (who really only wanted to farm) and called him to this calling for these 35 years. All is of Him, nothing of me in myself.
Mentioning thanks, I wish you all a very blessed THANKSGIVING.
Please pray for safe travels. Today my wife Sharilyn leaves for Panama (to visit family), and on Tuesday I leave for Suriname (to minister & serve the Lord in both Church and School). Please continue to pray for the Church and School in Suriname.
