I have had the privilege of being instructed by some of the most gifted preachers in modern fundamentalism. I have been blessed, instructed, and rebuked as God has skilfully used these willing men as tools in His hands. Yesterday, after over twenty year of faithful service, one such man, Dan Labieniec, preached his final service at my church. God has sovereignly determined to move Pastor on to another place of service. During this final service, preached from Heb 12:1-3, the following passage kept ringing in my ears. It is a fitting tribute to Pastor’s labor and God’s manifold blessing:
“Now therefore, our God, we thank You, and praise Your glorious name. 14 “But who am I and who are my people that we should be able to offer as generously as this? For all things come from You, and from Your hand we have given You. 15 “For we are sojourners before You, and tenants, as all our fathers were; our days on the earth are like a shadow, and there is no hope. 16 “O LORD our God, all this abundance that we have provided to build You a house for Your holy name, it is from Your hand, and all is Yours.
God Be Praised!
