I am in Atlanta. I am here to preach Wednesday night for Pastor Maurice Watson at the Beulahland Bible Church in Macon. This is an unscheduled trip for me. The scheduled speaker for Wednesday night was not able to come. So Pastor Watson asked me to fill in. All he had to do was ask. And here I am. Pastor Watson is a homiletical hero, a pastoral mentor, and a dear friend. And I am honored that he asked me to come and share the word with his congregation.

I flew in a day early to hear the Tuesday night speaker: Dr. William Curtis, who pastors the Mt. Ararat Baptist Church in Pittsburgh. I have heard recordings of Dr. Curtis. And I have been richly blessed by his preaching. I was eager to hear him in person. And he did not disappoint. He preached an obscure text of scripture. But his exposition of that passage was clear, powerful, and challenging. The Lord really used him tonight. I was a great worship experience. Pray for me that the Lord would use me to preach the word in Wednesday night’s meeting.
