“He who calls you is faithful, who also will do it.” 1 Thessalonians 5:24.
A friend recently questioned my reasons for engaging the various battles in life when it all seemed so “pointless.”
I understood her frustration. I’m the woman who wonders about all the battles when faced with monumental opposition at every turn:
3 March 1528
Balthasar Hubmaier arrested.
Executed 7 days later.
He prayed: “Let me not be ashamed in eternity.”
Believer’s baptism and those who got in “hot water.”

The “Sinner’s Prayer” makes another disciple
A little girl walked the aisle Sunday evening with her daddy during the altar call to tell me that she said the “Sinner’s Prayer” on Thursday night. Christ died for her, as well as for all the world. She will be baptized by immersion very soon. She said a sinner’s prayer. Her father received the joy of leading her in that prayer. God is good. I am thankful to be able to say with a clear conscience from the Word of God to all sinners that Christ died for them. I am thankful to see God continue to use altar calls. I am thankful to have Traditional, Southern Baptist convictions. I am thankful for the calling to ministry. I am just plain thankful. I will stop typing now…I am just a little excited.

Sometimes I feel like I’ve been working with young people way too long. These days, I find myself in an unusual position. When I hang out with people my age, I hear them talking about retirement plans, grandchildren, great-grandchildren, moving to a warmer climate and meeting at various homes for something called “Bunko.” I’m not sure what that is, but if it has to be done outside of the church, I suspect money, dice or playing cards must be involved.
