this is my boy jeremy. he’s putting the finishing touches on a sermon he was a moment away from delivering to our university. he was a moment away from a grand opportunity.
earlier this evening, i got a chance to play some saxophone on a show called “Studio Sessions” on CMRadio. (http://www.andrews.edu/cm/cmradio/programming/studiosessions/)
(for one of the songs: www.andrews.edu/cm/cmradio/files/ss_20110127_iwantjesus_eq_sc.m4a)
as i was being interviewed, the thought grasped me that every show, the host has an opportunity.
the opportunity in both cases is the same. its an opportunity to go into ministry.
However, this opportunity isn’t limited to radio shows and sermons. I believe that we all are given this opportunity. It comes in different forms; a chance to help, a chance to smile. A chance to care, a chance to be leaned upon. Ministry isn’t a Facebook event or a newspaper headliner. Ministry happens every day.
What opportunity are you a moment away from?
