Romans 1:16-17 - Not Ashamed of the Gospel

Length: 27:13   Download MP3

    Last eve I passed a blacksmith’s door
    And heard the anvil ring the vesper chime;
    When looking in, I saw upon the floor,
    Old hammers worn with beating years of time.
    ‘How many anvils have you had,’ said I,
    ‘To wear and batter these hammers so?’
    ‘Just one,’ said he; then with a twinkling eye,
    ‘The anvil wears the hammers out, you know.’
    And so, I thought, the anvil of God’s word,
    For ages, skeptics blows have beat upon;
    Yet, though the noise of falling blows was heard,
    The anvil is unharmed – the hammers gone.

1.  Keep on preaching the gospel
