“Church Planter” Ron Edmondson writes in his blog… Breaking News: 75 Year Old Starts Big Bold New Ministry
“The Lord said to Abram: Go out from your land, your relatives, and your father’s house to the land that I will show you. I will make you into a great nation, I will bless you, I will make your name great, and you will be a blessing. I will bless those who bless you, I will curse those who treat you with contempt, and all the peoples on earth will be blessed through you. So Abram went, as the Lord had told him, and Lot went with him.
Abram was 75 years old when he left Haran.” Genesis 12:1-4
Ron Edmondson continues… “I know it is naive for a near 50 year old to say this, but I hope God is still calling me to something new when I’m 75.
I hope He continues to call me to walk by faith, stretches my small dreams into big ones, and motivates me to more than I could have ever imagined. I don’t want to miss a moment of what God has for my life.”
