Enjoying the Journey

Everyone’s favorite verse to quote in recent times has been, “But evil men and seducers shall wax worse and worse, deceiving, and being deceived” (2 Timothy 3:13). While this is absolutely true and evidently happening I would encourage you to read the next verse: “But continue thou in the things which thou hast learned and hast been assured of, knowing of whom thou hast learned them” (2 Timothy 3:14).

We must never use the condition in our world as an excuse for our own faithlessness and fruitlessness. When the Lord said that wickedness would abound more and more He did not say that His power would wax less and less!


As we begin a new year this must be our watchword. Some pastors have talked with me recently about a theme for 2021. Perhaps this would be a good one. After a year of uncertainty and trials God’s people must determine to continue. Regardless of what may lie ahead in the new year we must make up our minds that we will continue.

This is the emphasis of this year’s Conference on Revival and Evangelism, January 5-7, 2021. My heart is always refreshed and recharged at this meeting and this year is going to be more accessible than ever. The CORE 2021 meeting will be virtual this year. From anywhere in the world you can register and participate in these encouraging sessions. You will be helped by the time in God’s Word and prayer with so many other pastors, evangelists, and Christian workers.

I look forward to joining Tim Rabon, Tom Farrell, Byron Foxx, John Goetsch, Dave Young, and Mike Norris and many of you for this meeting. Register now at core2021.net. By God’s grace let’s determine to begin the new year with God’s command and our commitment to CONTINUE.

    Thanks for this. We all seem to quit reading & need to move in to that next verse. I’m praying that we continue.
