I had the privilege of preaching at the Reformed Baptist Church of Louisville last night for my friend Pastor Jim Savastio. Jim was in NY preaching at a youth conference. I preached on Ephesians 2:4-5a, The Redemtpive Heart of God Exposed. It was good to see some folks I had not seen in quite some time and to meet new ones. I found the congregation very attentive and easy to preach to. Preachers will know what I mean by this. An attentive congregation is due, in part, to a faithful pulpit ministry. I came away saying to my wife, “God has blessed Jim’s ministry.”
