There will be a period of time when they will not put up with the healthful teaching. That’s an inspired utterance…it’s in the Bible TomDumb remarks as if he’s caught off guard, but he’s not. “I never am,” Tom, continues, “you know how they get annoyed when we ring, and knock? They cut us off when we are trying to read a Bible verse. They have their own religion, they tell me, or I’m not interested, or the familiar, I’m busy, but having their own religion will it be there for them when they need it?
In spite of their protest we are to continue to be at it urgently—whether they like it or not—in favorable season in troublesome season, we reprove, but they will never know that we hold firmly to the faithful word, not watering it down, or twisting its meaning to fit a favorite ear tickler. Sometimes that takes patience and art of teaching.
I am already being poured out like a drink offering. Each day it takes much effort to get out of the house, especially during bitter cold in the teens temperature. I think with dread ahead of next winter, I should not be worrying about what tomorrow—let alone next winter a year away—I said to Viv I don’t want to be here. Drink offering carefully measured out with precious ingredients added to make an emulsion that can be burned to give off a restful odor. They remark about what I say at the door.
“What’s this,” NeberCudGetit remarks, “Next winter you’re fussing about? Are you really being poured out, and is it so bad to be sitting in a warm car with warmer companions as your lady attendants? How imminent is the due time for your releasing? You don’t know that.
“I have fought the fine fight,” DaddyLongDays announces in earnest, I have run the course to the finish line. I heard that talk too, are you ready for the finish line?IU Well, I’ve been training for it, however I’m 81 so I can’t run as fast as I did, and the way I am running is not uncertainly but I stay in my own lane. As far as running toward the finish line, I can’t see it yet, it’s somewhere up ahead, but I pursue down toward that goal of the upward prize by means of Christ Jesus.
