Woe to me if I do not preach the gospel
—1 Corinthians 9:16
I have always loved the Word of God. There have been many times I tried to walk away and find something easier. But just the thought of not being a herald of truth for the Lord is daunting. I find myself relating to the prophet Jeremiah who once says, “I will not mention his word or speak anymore in his name.” It was not long till he realized a man like him was not meant for silence. Jeremiah continues to say, “His word is in my heart like a fire, a fire shut up in my bones.” I don’t know If it will be from behind the podium, from a professors lectern, or through books, but I will declare the praises of God.
