There was a church where the preacher and the song leader were not
getting along. This began to spill over into the worship service.
One week the preacher preached on commitment, and how we should
dedicate ourselves to service. The song leader then led the song, “I
Shall Not Be Moved”.
The next Sunday, the preacher preached on giving and how we should
gladly give to the work of the Lord. The song leader then led the song,
“Jesus Paid It All”.
The next Sunday, the preacher preached on gossiping and how we should
watch our tongues. The song leader then led the song, “I Love To Tell
The preacher became very disgusted over the situation, and the next
Sunday he told the congregation he was considering resigning. The song
leader then led the song, “Oh, Why Not Tonight”.
As it came to pass, the preacher resigned and the next week informed the
church that it was Jesus that led him there and it was Jesus that was
taking him away. The song leader then led the song, “What A Friend
We Have in Jesus”.
