Sunday marks a special day for me.
My sermon text will be Luke 24:36-53. I will end a preaching journey I started on November 28, 2004, my second Sunday as pastor of Fellowship Baptist.
That Sunday, I began preaching through the first six chapters of Luke. Over the years, I’ve continued to preach through the book, six chapters at a time. Sunday will be my 111th sermon from Luke.
When I preached Luke 1:1-25, I had been a pastor for a total of seven days. I have now been a pastor for 7 ½ years.
In November 2004, Donna was pregnant with Sarah and Emma was 15 months old. She still had her pacifier clipped to her shirt.
In June 2012, Emma is almost 9, Sarah is 7, Brenna will be 4 on Monday, and Tessa is 14 months. Tessa looks a lot like Emma did on that Sunday.
Our marriage is better than ever. I could not do what I do without Donna. Wonder Woman drinks from a Donna Enoch coffee cup.
The church has grown, people have been saved, and believers have drawn closer to their Lord. I give God praise for His call on my life and for the privilege to preach His Word to His people each week.
I pray that each of you will find and obey God’s call in your lives.
Nothing is more rewarding.
