That’s My King

According to Wikipedia, here’s some basic information about the preacher who delivered this famous sermon. It’s sort-of old-time Baptist in its style and delivery, but Rev. Lockridge certainly held a view of Jesus that is deep, broad, and beautiful. Enjoy.

Dr. S.M. Lockridge (born Shadrach Meshach Lockridge, March 7, 1913 – April 4, 2000) was the Pastor of Calvary Baptist Church, a prominent African-American congregation located in San Diego, California, from 1953 to 1993. He was known for his preaching across the United States and around the world.

    I love that too. For those of us whose passion for the Lord runs deep and quiet, it’s often exhilarating to hear of someone whose passion for Christ runs up and over! Just listening to this again puts a different set of lenses on my nose. Thank you Vinita…

    Jesus is ALL of this and more; He is my friend. Jesus is ALL of this and yet He picked “me” to be His friend.
