Why Should I Not Continue To Preach?

On his eighty-fourth birthday, Dr. R. G. Lee, pastor of Bellevue Baptist Church in Memphis, Tennessee, was asked if he intended to keep preaching.

He replied, “When there are so many unsaved people around; when there are sorrowing hearts to be comforted; when so many young people are throwing away in folly’s court and carnal pleasure’s market the wealth God gave them at the start; when there are so many evils against which protest must be made; when so people are lonely for sunset trail; when, in 1910 at my ordination, I was married to preaching, until death do us part, why should I not in the eighty-fifth year of life keep on preaching?”
