Week of 8.30.2015-9.05.2015
I MAGNIFY MY OFFICE
It was Paul in Romans 11:13 who first said "...Inasmuch then as I am an apostle to the Gentiles, I magnify my office." Some years ago while pastoring in my mid-thirties I wrote an op-ed column for a newspaper, it was conservative and actually gained a little following from St. Petersburg to as far away as Des Moines, Iowa. It caught the attention of a congressman who later became my friend. One day he came to see me to ask me if I would run for a vacant House of Representatives opening, promising to put all of the parties muscle and resources behind me to get me elected.
