In my calling I wear two hats. One hat is that of a shepherd…one that leads, guides and helps the sheep. It involves going after the one that is lost…provide comfort for the one that is distraught…and actively love the one that feels that there is no hope. The other hat I wear is that of a preacher…one that must bring forth the Word of God without compromise. It involves teaching the truths of the Bible without cultural interference…a desire to confront sin where ever it may lurk…and a willingness to live or die by the Scriptural revelations. Half of the sheep want me to wear only one hat…half of the sheep want me to wear the other. The God that I serve…the Maker of this universe…the Creator of Truth…the One that called me…wants me to always wear both. Some days that is difficult…but it is what is needed in today’s society!!!
“The times demand Christian courage. These days, courage means that preachers and Christian leaders must set an agenda for biblical confrontation, and not shrink from dealing with the full range of issues…” – Dr. Albert Mohler
