I look forward to seeing you Sunday at First Baptist Church. On August 13, I began preaching on the subject of prayer. I hope you have benefitted from this study as much as I have. I am concluding the preaching series Sunday, but I sincerely trust that we will forever be growing into a “House of Prayer.”
On Sunday, we will consider “How to Pray for the Nations.” At various times, I have reminded us of some guiding principles for us as a church. I have suggested that we adopt these four core values as a church.
1. We must preach the same Gospel.
2. We must declare this message to the next generation.
3. We must preach this same Gospel to all the nations.
4. Whatever we accomplish must be all for God’s glory.
Sunday’s message concerns that third core value—preaching the Gospel to the nations. Specifically, I want to end our series on prayer with the reminder that we must be praying for the Gospel to be made known to the nations. Sunday also begins the season that we begin praying and thinking about the Lottie Moon Christmas Offering—our annual offering for International missions.
Have you downloaded the Activate Advent app? Friday, December 1, begins the daily advent devotionals that will be posted on the app. This is going to be the only place where these devotionals are accessible daily. You will also be able to use the app to keep up with other aspects of Christmas here at First Baptist Church.
See You Sunday!
