We have lived from, coast-to-coast, in the U.S.A. during the past forty-five years. As members of small, medium and large Southern Baptist Churches, we have served under the leadership of godly pastors. Many of these inspired under shepherds have gone on to their heavenly reward. I dedicate this devotional in the memory of these mighty men. Their spoken messages still serve as inspirational reminders.
“Therefore I will always remind you about these things, even though you know them and are established in the truth you have. I consider it right, as long as I am in this tent, to wake you up with a reminder, knowing that I will soon lay aside my tent, as our Lord Jesus Christ has shown me. And I will also make every effort that after my departure you may be able to recall these things at any time (2 Peter 1:12-15 HCS).”
