At the Cross

In Memory of:
Joey Butler
Isaiah 40:31
but those who hope in the Lord
    will renew their strength.
They will soar on wings like eagles;
    they will run and not grow weary,
    they will walk and not be faint.
Joey was a great pastor and friend.  He went to be with the Lord today.  He and Jesus are laughing about how he always told people that baseball was God's favorite sport.  I guess we will have to meet him at Heaven's gate to get the details on Jesus' response!
Joey was an incredible picture of building relationships with people.  Countless lives turned to Christ because of his questions.  Often times the questions were tough...hard to swallow...truth...addressed areas that needed action...change in direction...grace...BUT always provoked a deeper yearning and seeking of Truth...Jesus...and God's Word.
I know he will be deeply missed by his wife, 3 children, and family of believers.
Until the day we meet at Heaven's gate...and see him in a ball cap...probably Mississippi red...playing for team Jesus...may we be challenged to build people who know Christ, make Him know, and enjoy the journey together.
Have a blessed day!
