Original Thoughts

Today, I listened to a sermon by C.J. Mahaney while I ran at the Y. These sermons are from when he spoke at Lance Quinn's church. You can get them, and some by his wife (for you ladies) here. He said something I liked. He actually said several things I liked, but he said that he has never had an original thought. He said you could stop him at any moment in any of his messages and he could tell you whose shoulders he is standing on. That is encouraging to me. I used to be amazed at certain preachers and think, 'How do they come up with this stuff.' The more widely I read, I am finding that they didn't come up with it after all. As the old preacher said, "There is nothing new under the sun." C.J. confirmed that today. Anyway..
