Why I admire Marvin Sapp

Over the last couple of weeks I have come to develop a great deal of admiration and respect for Pastor Marvin Sapp.

I’m sure you know that a few weeks ago his wife MaLinda passed away due to cancer. I don’t think any of us would have faulted him if he would have gone into hiding and stayed away from the public eye for a few months.

He is doing the complete opposite. He is already out and about participating in How Sweet The Sound. If I were to be faced with the same circumstances, I don’t know if I would be able to demonstrate the same amount of strength. With God, all things are possible. If I ever have to endure the passing of my wife, I will need A LOT of help from God.

I know what some of you may be thinking. Lady MaLinda Sapp was ill for quite some time. This allowed him to prepare himself for her passing. It is not easy to simply just get over it and move on. Although we may know the passing of a loved one may be eminent, the pain we feel is still real.

Even though MaLinda Sapp is rejoicing in heaven, I’m not sure it is fair for any of us to just expect Pastor Marvin to go on and live a normal life. Truth is, his life is probably completely different now. Life for his children will never be the same either.

I’m sure he agreed to participate in How Sweet the Sound months ago. He could have respectfully withdrawn from this commitment, but he didn’t. Judging by everything I have heard and read about MaLinda Sapp she would have wanted him to honor the commitments that he made.

I don’t know Pastor Marvin Sapp personally. Like many of you, I have watched him from afar for a number of years. I watched the broadcast of MaLinda Sapp’s homegoing service. I was impressed by the strength he showed during that time. I also admire him for continuing to do what God has called him to do.

I realize that there are millions of people that loose loved ones, and go back to work a week or even days later. I’m not saying that what Pastor Sapp is doing is superhuman. I have a high level of respect for those people as well.

Death is never an easy thing to deal with. Let’s continue to pray for Pastor Marvin Sapp and his family in the weeks, months and years to come.

    The title of the song is “He SAW the Best in Me”. It is about how God look past all of our faults. He knows our true potential even when nobody else recognizes it.

    I’m glad that He looks past our faults. Just like the song says, “He looked beyond my faults and saw my need.” I heard a pastor on TV say recently that if you have a problem getting over something that you really don’t want to do anymore, that that person should question his salvation. God doesn’t save us because we are too good. He saves us because we aren’t pure and we need Him to change us. People in Old Testament times weren’t without problems. David married Bathsheba and committed adultery. Saul, before his name was changed to Paul, put people to death. They asked God to forgive them and God used them in powerful ways.
