“Hey, it’s good to be back home again;
Sometimes this old farm feels like a long lost friend;
Yes, and hey it’s good to be back home again.”

After four blessed days at the Salem Baptist Church (read about them here, here, here, and here) , I am now back in my office getting ready for Sunday morning and evening. 

Here’s a question I have:  for Southern Baptists, are revival services only successful if someone “walks the aisle?”  I confess, I felt that during this past week.  No one stepped out to walk the aisle to make a public commitment.  Yet many on the way out talked with me one on one and told them how the Lord convicted and encouraged them in a number of areas.  That’s all a preacher can do is scatter seed — God causes the growth (1 Corinthians 3:8).
