Remembering R.H. “Tex” Williams

Tex Williams graduated to glory on October 23, 2019. World Bible School’s current chairman, Howard Norton, sent this message:
This is another giant who has left our earthly presence. I am thankful for his life and friendship and for his boundless energy and talent for reaching the lost. Although we will miss him, I am thankful that he has crossed the finish line and is in a better place.

Have you noticed how partial we are to comfort these days? Today’s new songs make us feel good. They are sweet and attractive, often based on comforting Scriptures. The Word should inspire our songs (Colossians 3:16). But that same Word has a sharp side. Where are contemporary choruses that warn about God’s wrath? Where are the “hard sayings”? They too reflect the God we adore.

Have you noticed an emphasis on “power tools” as gift ideas for occasions like Father’s Day? Ads promote electric and fueled gear with amazing capabilities, from driving screws to clipping hedges. This Action! explores ideas for the far greater mission. We start with God’s inspired instrument, the Gospel—“the power of God for salvation” and “the surpassing power” (Romans 1:16; 2 Corinthians 4:7), upon which we cannot improve. But the Word acts on hearts that hear it, which requires us to be messengers and senders (Romans 10:8-15). These tools, then, are about delivering the saving Message.
