December 5, 2016 - "For the word of God is quick, and powerful, and sharper than any two-edged sword…." Hebrews 4:12
The Marlin Model 5510 Super Goose Gun was produced from 1976 to 1985 and was advertised to be "the shotgun you need for those long, hard- to- hit shots". This gun had a 36"(!) length barrel and many bought one thinking it was the barrel length that gave it the extra power for those long shots. But Marlin couldn't be faulted for false advertising because they never said that a long barrel was the secret of the gun's power. Actually it was their 3 1/2" 10-gauge Magnum ammo that did the trick!
There are a lot of church members that mistakenly think that their education and long personality barrels will provide all the power they need to reach distant sinners. Consequently, they fail to reach their targets and return home empty. They…. like some of the mistaken Goose Gun owners of the past…. need to realize:
It's not man's long barrels that provide the power.
It’s God’s ammo.
