Woe to Me

August 4, 2008

Sometimes Scripture just grabs a hold of your heart and you can’t really shake it. One of these verses that I recently came across was what Paul said in 1 Corinthians 9:16 –

Yet when I preach the gospel, I cannot boast, for I am compelled to preach. Woe to me if I do not preach the gospel!

What a cool statement that he made. As I wrestle with where Megan and I will go to following seminary, this verse is now lodged in my heart and I don’t plan to try and take it out. Where will we be in the next few years? I don’t really know, but, “woe to me if I do not preach the gospel!”

    Amen and amen. As I continue in this series that I’m thinking through on the sinfulness of the sin of silence, the more I feel Paul’s exclamation.
