Lord, let my greatest ministry
Be one unknown to all but Thee.
Not a leader, still less a saint,
Nor yet with virtues all attained:
I humbly ask to simply be
All that Thou wouldst make of me.
Let not the pride of pulpit's place
Forestall my will to seek Thy face;
No, let my greatest glory be
In silent joy to fight for Thee.
This was my calling, first and last,
And shall be 'til my days are past.
Lord, march to war, Thy zeal unclasp;
Thy hammer here awaits Thy grasp.
A Note to My Readers -
I've decided to remove my Sunday posts from the weekly cycle. Although I hope they've been of benefit to some of you, they are necessarily secondary to my regular work of sermon preparation each week. I've found that having that extra post to write simply added to the burden of my work. For those readers who would still like access to my weekly work in Scriptural exposition, I would ask them to access the podcasts of my sermons (available through a link in the sidebar), since that remains the primary form of my Bible teaching each week.
