I first heard Tommy Bates almost 30 years ago when he was traveling around KY preaching the Gospel at any church who would let him. He was a young man back then, but I can still recall how simply and powerfully he preached God’s word. Since then, he acccepted the call to pastor at a Church a few miles from me, and has been there for many years.
Today my son had this song on a CD in his car and wanted me to hear it. Its Tommy Bates speaking first, briefly, about a local tragedy which occurred here awhile back. Then he sings…
I hope the song blesses you as much as it did me.
Maybe there’s ‘somebody out there’ right now who needs to hear this? I don’t know, but I felt impressed to share it.
“Come to me, all you who are weary and burdened, and I will give you rest. Take my yoke upon you and learn from me, for I am gentle and humble in heart, and you will find rest for your souls. For my yoke is easy and my burden is light.” Matthew 11: 28-30
