The Preacher

Where would we be without our Preachers
those who boldly convey to us, Godís word
Godís exclusively chosen, anointed teachers
making sure, his law and truth will be heard

All of his brave, devoted men and women
who will valiantly stand, for truth and right
Those who will stand and speak against sin
helping lost souls to find Godís saving light

Those whoíll take the worldly persecutions
with heads up high, still stand their ground
When facing threats of physical executions
yet in them faithfulness could still be found

Those who will not sugar-coat Godís truth
those whoíll lay that truth, right on the line
Tho some will call them pushy, or uncouth
from the will of God they will never resign

Those who're filled with the Holy Ghost fire
and not afraid to seek, the will of the Lord
Reaching a lost soul, is their burning desire
not achieving fame, or some worldly award

Oh, if it was not for a preacher, Iíd be lost,
God spoke unto my heart, from lips of clay
He took my heart, iced over with sinís frost
then placed my feet, on that Heavenly way

For after that in the wisdom of God the world by wisdom knew not God, it pleased God by the foolishness of preaching to save them that believe. 1 Corinthians 1:21 KJV

How true, Bessie. I remember the first preacher I ever heard. I was seven (before that our family had lived in the country). He was a feisty little live-wire that preached to a small congregation. Everyone listened. I can remember many preachers since then, but this first one will always stand out in my memory. Oh for the "old fashioned gospel" kinds of preachers...God bless them all...Thanks Bessie...Keep on keeping on...Helen
