Pastor's Sermon Aimed At ME
My pastor shapes his sermons
From A to final Z
In clear and forthright language,
And aims them straight at me.
And when he gets to preaching,
I look around to see
If there might be another
Deserving more than me.
But every soul looks saintly
Their hearts to heaven turn
While I, in my conviction,
Can only sit and squirm.
You know, I often wonder
If I should miss a day;
Would he, without his target,
Have anything to say?

The message of the preacher blessed by God will disturb the casual, even as it glorifies the Master. Contrary to every expectation, the message presented by the servants of the devil is boring, generating no excitement and no reaction.

The actual going is subservient to the task: the preaching, teaching and baptising... If God be for us, who can be against us? (Romans 8:31). If Immanuel is with us, then we need have no fear. If the Holy Spirit is in us, then we are empowered...
