Growing up as a Salvation Army Officer's (minister's) kid was quite an experience. Yes, that makes me the proverbial "Preachers Kid" or "PK" for short.
Well, you might think being exposed to the Christian way of life, one would have an automatic ticket into God's kingdom. Not so, for we all must come in by the way of the cross.
For you see, looking back growing up as a "PK", the most important message I remember was the strong, but simple, evangelistic teaching which states, "For by grace you have been saved through faith; and that not of yourselves, it is the gift of God; not of works, that no one should boast". (Ephesians2:8-9) To that I shout "Amen."
Additionally, in support of this evangelistic message, was our old fashioned church altar. Now, I realize the physical make up of that old alter was no different than any other construction. However, that old fashioned alter was very special for me, for that old alter was where I was first introduced to the Living God.
As a retired church lay leader, I still believe in that "Old Time Religion". I can't help but ponder those old "brush-arbor" revival meetings where the "Amen's" and the "Hallelujah's" echoed, as the spirit led.
I pray now, since retiring from my secular profession, that God will hide me behind the cross and use this compilation of writings to give encouragement and strength to the Christians as well as draw the sinners into a saving knowledge of Jesus Christ.
My family and I are now active in our local Bible Church.
