When you speak just once, you always have to ask yourself the question, what do you really want to say to the people, or what would God have me select as a topic that would be important for you? You know, we have the privilege as traveling people to be able to repeat ourselves. Pastors don’t often have that privilege. They have to be so fresh week after week. And it’s a very challenging call. But I want to bring to you today a message that I think will be meaningful for you because it answers one of the most fundamental questions of life.
Break, it was hard to start packing again, and I couldn’t find most of the things that I normally keep in my case ready to go. But before Christmas, I’m under orders from my wife that every suitcase has to go into the basement. So it went to the basement and then I had to go looking for it. But she was going to be here as well. Two days ago, I came back from work about 4:00 p.m. in the afternoon, and she was completely.
And nevertheless, that’s it, my people think, and we are grateful that you all do, and that’s why here at this conference, I esteem see as one of the great heroes of the faith today and the line up that he’s got in here.
Thank you. Please be seated. Thank you. Thank you so much. Maybe if I leave now, I can tell my wife I got a standing ovation when I finished. So this is really kind of you. But Robert, those words mean a lot. Maybe most of you may not be aware of what your church has already done and what your pastor and your leadership team have already done. Just about a year and a half ago when I was in Indonesia and talking to a businessman and the Lord laid a burden on my heart and frankly, I didn’t want a new burden.
