It reminds me of the illustration in which an elderly Pastor is contacted at his small Church by a young man that asks if he could come and deliver a sermon. The elderly Pastor was well past retirement with no replacement so he thought this might be an answer to his prayer for that replacement. The young man came and delivered just an awful sermon. On finishing, the young man stated that he thought that he had done pretty well and wondered what the elderly Pastor thought. The elderly gentleman asked the young man “were you called or did you just up and went”. See Men's Ministry #6 in this continuing series.
