Saturday Song: Gerry and The Pacemakers, "Ferry Cross The Mersey"

I'm sure I'm right that almost all of us have a fondness for where we grew up. Whether it's a desert, jungle, or tundra, we all feel a connection to that special spot on earth where we call, or called, home.

This song by Gerry and The Pacemakers is one of those which, though we might not live in Liverpool, we still can identify with it. It's also a nice song from the mid sixties British invasion.

Listen to the song here.

I deeply admire missionaries. They leave the comforts of home and their families to bring the gospel to people in distant lands. It isn't easy to learn a new language and acclimatize one's self to a completely different part of the world. Even so, these brave men and women do so to bring the wonderful news of salvation to folks who never heard about Jesus before.

But our Lord doesn't leave them comfortless and uncompensated. Mark 10:29-30 (KJV) explains, "And Jesus answered and said, 'Verily I say unto you, There is no man that hath left house, or brethren, or sisters, or father, or mother, or wife, or children, or lands, for my sake, and the gospel's, But he shall receive an hundredfold now in this time, houses, and brethren, and sisters, and mothers, and children, and lands, with persecutions; and in the world to come eternal life.'"

So, what do you think of this song and what I wrote? Feel free to leave me a comment below. But if you won't or can't do that, have a great weekend anyway.

I'll be posting on Monday about how some folks only believe in a higher power. It isn't enough to merely believe that a superior being made everything.
