Call To Worship

An excerpt from the announcement James Montgomery Boice--senior pastor of Tenth Presbyterian Church at the time--made to his congregation just before giving the call to worship about his being diagnosed with cancer. The Lord called him home eight weeks later:
God is not only the one who is in charge; God is also good. Everything he does is good. And what Romans 12, verses1 and 2, says is that we have the opportunity by the renewal of our minds—that is, how we think about these things—actually to prove what God’s will is. And then it says, “His good, pleasing, and perfect will.” Is that good, pleasing, and perfect to God? Yes, of course, but the point of it is that it’s good, pleasing, and perfect to us. If God does something in your life, would you change it? If you’d change it, you’d make it worse. It wouldn’t be as good.
