Mark 10:31 (KJV) But many that are first shall be last; and the last first.
Throughout the Word of God there are doctrines of the Kingdom of Heaven. This verse is one of those doctrines. A doctrine according to Webster's 1913 Dictionary: 1. Teaching; instruction. 2. A principle of faith. Also meaning a Precept; a rule to be obeyed. Tenet; Principle; Maxim; Dogma. Doctrine denotes whatever is recommended as a speculative truth to the belief of others.
I find it sort of funny when I try to do things like a scholar or a professor. These things I am not! I'm just a trucker who has preached all over the country at one time or another to other truckers, truck stop waitresses, dock hands, warehouse staff, forklift drivers, loaders of all kinds, even the pickers and migrant help and even lots of prostitutes that frequent the truck stops and rest areas that trucks park in overnight.
So, as you can see, if I talked all high-minded and "scholarly" like who-ever, I would never have gotten to first base! But because I just talk from my heart and from my experiences of living on the road as a trucker, I've been fortunate to relate to hundreds and hundreds over the years and lead hundreds or maybe thousands to the Lord Jesus Christ. The Lord knows.

I write and preach and minister from my perspective of a 40-year career of trucking and 3-million miles across America. I'm now retired and creating Christian content for cell groups to form a brand new missionary type of church! -JC
