Come with me, and see my zeal for the LORD

2 Kings[15] And when he was departed thence, he lighted on Jehonadab the son of Rechab coming to meet him: and he saluted him, and said to him, Is thine heart right, as my heart is with thy heart? And Jehonadab answered, It is. If it be, give me thine hand. And he gave him his hand; and he took him up to him into the chariot.[16] And he said, Come with me, and see my zeal for the LORD. So they made him ride in his chariot.[17] And when he came to Samaria, he slew all that remained unto Ahab in Samaria, till he had destroyed him, according to the saying of the LORD, which he spake to Elijah.

Brother Andy Slabaugh visited our teen ministry last night and preached a dynamic message. He preached from the passage above encouraging the teens to be zealous for the Lord, for the next generation, and for the Gospel. It's so exciting to see young preachers who are picking up the torch that has been passed on to them and running with it.

The part that impacted me most was when he listed many of the great men who have recently made an impact in Baptist churches like D.L. Moody, Billy Sunday, Jack Hyles, and Lester Roloff. Then he said,

"Do you know what all these men have in common? They're all dead!" Wow. That is so true! And no matter how many books and audio sermons they left behind, none of it will do an ounce of good if another generation doesn't fill their shoes and take the message of the Gospel to the lost and dying world. Great preaching Brother!

Thanks for the comment. I actually just listed a couple of my bows on ebay this week, so I'll see how that goes.

I also changed the link. (I have a hard time rembering to check and make sure my links are right.... usually I go to someone else's blog first, and then use their links. LOL!)

Thanks Jessica! Let me know how your bows do on ebay, I'm always looking for ideas (not that I would sell bows...)

No offense, Bro. David, but why do you have a link to a book by Herbert Armstrong in this post? He is the one who started a cult (that still goes on today), denying various fundamentals of the faith, among other things.

Thanks for the heads up! I'm an associate, so I use some of their tools to monetize my blog. One of the tools identifies key words in the text and automatically creates a link to relevent books. To all reading this, I'M NOT PROMOTING THIS BOOK. Thanks for pointing this our Jerry.
