We all are pursuing something or someone? If you doubt that or don’t know what you are pursuing, let me challenge you to think about two questions. Where do you spend your time? Where do you spend your money? An honest assessment of those two areas will be good indicators of what or who you are pursuing.
I am going to start this year by preaching on this subject of “Pursue.” Our Biblical text to guide our thinking will be the New Testament book of Philippians. If you live in the Lafayette area and are not currently connected to a local church, we would certainly love to have you. Beginning this Sunday, January 6, we will implement a new schedule, so starting this Sunday is the perfect time to come for the first time. Our early service will begin at 8:15 a.m. and our later service will be at 10:45 a.m. We will have one Sunday School hour for all age groups in the middle of those two worship times at 9:30 a.m. We are located at 1100 Lee Ave in Downtown Lafayette.
I have been led to Philippians to help us with our theme “Pursue” because Paul knew what pursuing Christ looked like. His testimony of pursuing Christ is an ultimate example. Paul, before he was a believer in Christ, also knew what it was like to pursue the things of this world. Paul described that part of his life with a strong word—rubbish! So, Paul’s testimony is a powerful one. There is much to learn here in Philippians.
I would love to welcome you to our church this Sunday!
