During my youth all I wanted was to be just like my dad, a family doctor, but before I started medical school, my dad approached me and asked, “Son, are you sure you want to be a physician? Are you sure you don’t want to be a preacher?” Already my dad had seen my love for God’s Word and my desire to make the Lord known to my circle of influence. Even though I practice family medicine, I tell my pastor friends I am always ready to preach with a sermon in my pocket. Just call me – anytime, any day!
There is something about speaking the truth that energizes me. I can’t describe it in this little vision statement! You preachers know what I mean! When I stand in the pulpit, I desire for others to see not me, but Jesus – how He can transform their lives completely, how He gives hope to those who suffer, and how He gives life to those who are lost.
