July 8: Rev. William Stuart Red
Words to Live By: He seemed to be larger than life, but then aren’t all Texans? Yet it is important to remember that his love for the state of Texas was grounded in Christian Presbyterianism in Texas. Paul’s haunting question in the New Testament was “How shall they hear without a preacher?” Rev. Red wanted Presbyterian preachers to train and serve their Lord and God so that his fellow Texans could hear the unsearchable riches of God’s grace. That is true for all of our states. Pray for where God has placed you on this day that the everlasting good news of eternal life might impact your state.
