My most positive word today? The word, “steady.” Years ago, we had a member of our congregation by the name of Tom Porterfield, who has since gone on to be with the Lord. When I would ask him every Sunday morning how he was doing, he would reply with a simple, “I’m steady.”
Brother Tom was indeed “steady.” Even though he was up in years, he’d be present at every worship service of the Lord’s people. He was truly an inspiration and godly example of “steady” service to the Lord, and we greatly miss his presence when we assemble today.
Brethren, like brother Tom, may we be found to be “steady” – “Steadfast, unmovable, always abounding in the work of the Lord, knowing that your labor is not in vain in the Lord” (1 Corinthians 15:58-NKJV).
