O-o-oh someday I’ll see the King in His beauty.

Someday all heaven will dazzle my sight

Someday I’ll finish my last “daily-duty”

And it all began that Spring Thursday night.

ON THIS DATE

Edgar A Bryan was converted to Jesus Christ, 4/26/1956, in the village of Bremen, OH.  It was at the old  Pilgrim Holiness Church, (in town) then pastored by the impressive J D (John Denver) Webb, Sr. (father of evangelist Orlow C Webb).  It was a Thursday night revival service.  The evangelist is not remembered but could have been Bro Howard Williams as the Williams were at Bremen more than once in those years.

Yours truly was raised (youngest of four) in the Christian home of Clyde D & Ruth E Bryan & knew better than to use “four letter” language around them, but had picked up a foul-mouth habit, which was practiced at school in Somerset.  The next day on lunch break four or five of us were returning to campus from eating “down town” when I, from habit used the word “h_ _ l.”  It was said without thinking but immediately I felt badly.  I told the rest of the guys to go on & as I walked slowly up the alley I asked God to forgive me – He did, restored the joy to my heart, & to God be the glory, I have never said that word “as a bad word” since.  I cannot testify that I never sinned after that Spring Thursday night but I can say it was THE major turning point.  Though at times I yielded to temptation the set of my soul was toward God & heaven.

That conversion kept me through the last weeks of the 7th grade, all the 8th grade, & propelled me toward God’s Bible School.  The decision to go there (some 140 miles of two-lane road away) was a mutual one between my God-loving parents & 14½ yours truly. All four years of high school were spent at God’s Bible School.  There I made many life-long friends.  There I participated in the famous Thanksgiving Dinners. There I held my first job (off campus) at Jewish Hospital.  There I attended my first IHC – never forgot the night I heard H Robb French. And, there I met my life-love, the former Martha M Scarbrough.

“Therefore I say unto you, Take no thought for your life,

what ye shall eat, or what ye shall drink; nor yet for your body, what ye shall put on.

Is not the life more than meat, and the body than raiment?”

Mat 6.25

IMMENSE

 

God’s salvation plan is immense,

His redemptive love is intense,

Soon eternity will commence.

Stop, hypocrite, trying to “ride the fence.”

Sinners may go to “Gospel sings,” “Christmas dramas,” even church services to be entertained

Saints go to God’s House to worship – Worship is about Him, not us.
