The Best “Career”

Guests.  Hospital visits.  Etc.  A horrible cold last week settled in my lungs.  (Formerly a several-times-a-year occurrence, this is the first time it’s happened in more than a year!  Hooray! :))

All that is to say, life is moving faster than I am these days.  So again I’ll let someone else do the writing.  David Warner, on Kent Brandenburg’s What is Truth, on the privilege of the ministry “career”:

If any man were to think less of this master, I want him to remember that a medical doctor can save only a human body, but the career of Christ can save a human soul forever; a lawyer can change a criminal to only a prisoner, but the truth can change a criminal to a Christian; a firefighter can save a man from only a house of fire, but the truth can save a man from the fires of hell; an astronomer knows only the stars of the universe, but I know what’s beyond the universe; an archaeologist knows only the artifacts of the past, but I know the Architect of the past; and a soldier knows how to fight only a war, but I know how to fight the war that will end all wars. This is the career I am trained to do, to give man the answers he doesn’t want to hear, but the only answers that will allow him to see reality and the better meaning of his existence to God.

It’s all worth reading.

      Thank you, Brother Al. Not sure why I get any “credit” — he did all the work and gave us a really challenging and encouraging article. 🙂 But that’s the way the ‘Net works, I guess.
