To Be Continued

After reading the sermon text the pastor noted he had three points to make. Point 1). Believers are called to follow Jesus. From there the pastor took us on a Bible Wilderness Tour with one passage of Scripture after another. While he did tie all his leapfrog thoughts together with Bible references and illustrations, I kept listening for point number 2). and 3). Realizing his time was up he made a quick summary and admitted, “I have a couple more points to make…” Worshippers laughed when he continued, “We’ll get to them someday.” The sermon was reminiscent of watching a movie I’ve recorded only to discover the last 10 minutes failed to record. “Do not withhold good from those who deserve it, when it is in your power to act. Do not say to your neighbor, “Come back later; I’ll give it tomorrow”— when you now have it with you” (Proverbs 3:27-28 NIV).
