Kenn Edwards/Michael Cook

Leviticus 19:32 says, “Stand up in the presence of the aged, show respect for the elderly, and revere your God.”

Why is that important? Because faithfulness is important. We should give honor to those who have been faithful before us. Think about this, someone was faithful to establish your church. Someone was faithful to present the Gospel to you. Someone has been faithful to teach you the ways of God. For all of us, somebody paved the way for us. 

 Our guest today is Michael Cook, Senior Pastor at Oakland Heights Baptist Church in Longview, Texas. Since 1991 he has been the pastor at four different churches across East Texas, and in Albuquerque, New Mexico. In 2017 he was privileged to return to his home church as senior pastor. He is a graduate of New Orleans Theological Seminary, and married to his sweetheart, Becky Cook.
