David Johnson – (II Tim. 2:1-5) What a charge! The words the aged Apostle Paul penned to Timothy, his son in the ministry, have been inspiring men for hundreds of years. The force and power with which he gave that charge hasn’t been diminished in any way. And I say with complete confidence that short of our call to walk with the Lord Jesus Christ in a personal relationship there is no greater calling in the world than to preach the Word of God or pastor one of the Lord’s churches. In keeping with the theme that Bro. Fields has chosen, “Meeting the Challenges of Ministry,” I want to speak to you tonight concerning ministry. Specifically preaching the Gospel and even more specific, pastoring one of the Lord’s churches.
