Dr Tom Hermiz in his book on Holiness tells of being in a motel room in Columbus Ohio before preaching three times on Sunday at a missionary conference. The people in the next room had a loud party, and at 1 am he called the front desk, and they called the room. But it was after 3 am before they quieted down and he got to sleep. At 4:45am his alarm went off. He said he was tempted to turn on the TV and make lots of noise, but that wouldn’t be loving them like Jesus. So he was quiet and even closed the door quietly when he left, although he was tempted to slam it. He said I felt good in my soul, and God gave me the ability to preach without any tiredness at all.
