It has been an honor to be a preacher’s preacher for most of the last year. Robert Hodshire, and his wife Ruth, have been attending South Side, starting shortly after I begin my ministry there. Robert and I are much alike in our stance for New Testament Christianity. Robert and I both are strong Church of Christ/Christain Church preachers.
This past Sunday Robert finished the race of life. He died of a massive stroke. While we all miss Robert already, we celebrate because we know he has received his reward in Christ.
In his last sermon at South Side, Robert spoke of how “God Knows Us, Do You Know Him?” And in the sermon he mentioned how God desires the “cream of the crop”. Robert, in his faithful life, was one of those who I would consider the”cream of the crop”.
My prayers go out to Ruth and family. I hope we can continue to minister to her as she remains faithful.
II Timothy 4:5-8 5 But you, be sober in all things, endure hardship, do the work of an evangelist, fulfill your ministry. 6 For I am already being poured out as a drink offering, and the time of my departure has come. 7 I have fought the good fight, I have finished the course, I have kept the faith; 8 in the future there is laid up for me the crown of righteousness, which the Lord, the righteous Judge, will award to me on that day; and not only to me, but also to all who have loved His appearing.
