    I gave my first sermon today, and it was awesome.

    It wasn't the sermon that was awesome, it was knowing that I was delivering God's Word. Do any of you remember when I first joined the BB and had only been saved for a week or so? Can you believe that the guy who knew maybe one verse of the Bible and didn't know much else actually stood up on the pulpit and preached? I find it hard to believe and I am the one who did it.

    To make things even better we had a young girl get saved today. This is one of the kids I have been teaching in Jr. church and there where times that I thought her heart was so hard that she couldn't even hear the gospel. Just last week she and two others had me so frustrated in Jr. Chruch that I didn't know what to do. The Pastor and his wife spent the whole Sunday School hour talking with her and they were not sure if they had reached her or not. I couldn't believe it when I saw her walk foward at the invitation. I know that what happened was all of God. This does show me that God is blessing my work with the kids and me answering his call to preach.

    I can't remember when I gave my first sermon, but my favorite is preaching on the Lord's Supper.

    Brother Bill!! I've always admired your spirituality in the years you and I have been here at the BB!!

    I once heard the late great Dr. Adrian Rogers say this about his preaching

    "You can go out tomorrow morning and find a preacher that can preach the gospel better than I can!!! But you'll never be able to find a preacher that can preach a better gospel than I can!!"

    Praying for you every day, Brother!!

    Your Southern Baptist preaching friend,
    Bro. David

    Praise God! He still saves today! I'll be praying for more evidence of those gospel seeds coming to bear fruit!
