Don't you hate running out of gas? I've done it more than enough times to get tired of it and to actually start glancing at my gauges every now and then. Sometimes I run low in the tank in this whole ministry thing too. More frequently than I'd want you to know. The preacher guy who baptized me way back in the day used to end his letters, newsletters, etc. with the memorable "Keep on keeping on for Jesus." That's stuck with me many years although I struggle to live up to it fully. It's funny but I was working on an upcoming sermon from 2 Corinthians. I'm in chapter four. Check out the opening verse: Therefore, having this ministry by the mercy of God, we do not lose heart. (ESV)
Well, it looks like I'm going to be preaching to myself!
