POWER-POINT ILLUSTRATIONS AND PRINTED NOTES ARE AVAILABLE AT firstname.lastname@example.org A note from Danny King: I had always respected the Bible, but never read it. One day God spoke to my spirit. He said, â€śIs that REALLY my Word?â€ť There was no sound but it was so real I answered out loud, â€śYes.â€ť He replied to my spirit, â€śThen why donâ€™t you read it?â€ť That day changed my life. One thing led to another, and, long story short, I became a pastor. But pastoring and preaching are VERY different things. Again, long story short, I left my wife for one of the Sunday School teachers. I stopped teaching, but I could not stop reading. I got remarried, but came to grips with the fact that that no one would ever want to hear me again. Occasionally I found someone who was broken like me, and they would listen. Temple Baptist Church in Arcadia graciously accepted me and my new wife as members. After a year, my pastor (yes, it's my dad) insisted I begin teaching Sunday School. I donâ€™t think God ever wanted me to pastor. But one verse keeps coming up: Hebrews 9:14 How much more shall the blood of Christ, who through the eternal Spirit offered himself without spot to God, purge your conscience from dead works to serve the living God?
