“…To be effectively led I must be ultimately yielded in two ways.

And secondly, I must be yielded in my willingness to be led to where God needs to stamp my gifts and talents for His glory. To be effectively led I must be ultimately yielded in two ways.

  1. Dobson has been a true warrior…he has been a clear voice in the midst of so many muddy ethical situations. I hope that those who follow stay as true
