About Paul
  • Comment to those looking at my sermons: Be strong in the grace that is in Christ Jesus and the things you have heard from me in the presence of many witnesses the same commit to faithful people who will be able to teach others also. (Be multipliers) 2 Tim 2:1,2
  • One of my favorite illustrations: A similar circumstance once occurred in the life of William Carey, the pioneer missionary to India. After his work was established, those who supported him in England sent a printer to assist him in the work. Together they began producing portions of the Bible for distribution in India. One day while he was away from his station, a fire broke out and completely destroyed everything Carey had accomplished. The building, the presses, the Bibles, and worst of all, the manuscripts, grammars, and dictionaries on which he had spent many years of his life were all burned and destroyed. When Carey returned, his servant met him and tearfully relayed the news of the dreadful fire. How would Carey react? Without a word of despair or anger, William Carey knelt and thanked God that he still had strength enough to do that work all over again. Immediately he began, not wasting his time or licking his wounds. Before Carey died, under the direction of the Spirit of God he had not only duplicated his earlier achievements but produced far better grammars, dictionaries, and translations of the Scripture than the first time. William Carey had learned what Job had learned. Disaster does not necessarily mean the presence of secret sin. Sometimes God allows the pious to suffer just as He allows the impious. It is the trial of our faith that worketh patience, and without this trial the legendary patience of Job would not be such a comfort to us today.
  • If I could Preach one more time, I would say...: For to me to live is Christ and to die is gain.

    Hudson Taylor Hudson Taylor had definite convictions about how God’s work should be done. We can make our best plans and try to carry them out in our own strength.
