Timeless Truth For Troubled Times
Adrian Rogers
John 13

THERE'S AN OLD STORY THAT IS ROOTED IN TRUTH OF A GREAT, GREAT THEOLOGIAN, WHO WAS BEING INTERVIEWED BY A YOUNG PREACHER. AND HE SAID TO THIS GREAT THEOLOGIAN, WHO'D POURED THROUGH ALL THE MUSTY LIBRARIES AND HAD STUDIED AN' GIVEN IT ALL OF HIS LIFE TO THE EXACTING STUDY OF THEOLOGY, HE SAID, "SIR, WOULD YOU GIVE ME, IF YOU COULD, IN A SENTENCE, OUT OF ALL OF YOUR STUDY AND YOUR LIFETIME OF EXPERIENCE, THE GREATEST ONE TRUTH, THE MOST VITAL, MOST WONDERFUL, QUINTESSENCE OF TRUTH THAT YOU CAN GIVE."
