As a student pastor, Dr. Vernon McGee’s first church sat on a red clay hill in Midway, Georgia. It was there he said he received his greatest compliment:
“It was from a country boy wearing high buttoned, yellow shoes. After a morning service he came to speak to me. He groped for words, then blurted out, ‘I never knew Jesus was so wonderful!’ He started to say more but choked up and hurried out of the church.
As I watched him stride across the field, I prayed, ‘Oh, God, help me to always preach so that it can be said, I never knew Jesus was so wonderful.’“
