Remind them to be submissive to rulers and authorities, to obey, to be ready for every good work, Titus 3:1 (HCSB)
It was a GREAT day of Worship yesterday!!!!! As I made my way around the sanctuary I meet several guest. There were individuals attending yesterday that said that they are looking for a church home. They are looking for a place that has biblical teaching and opportunities for ministry. Others I spoke with have been visiting for awhile and others were here for the first time. God is on the move and church we need to BE READY!
How do continue to grow individually while at the same time growing via ministry to others and service? I believe we do so by exhibiting christian living among outsiders. Not just outsiders to our church, events and programs...but outsiders to the Gospel. Paul reminded Titus to "BE READY!" Be ready because one day we will be called on to share...to share our testimony, our experience, our transformation. As Paul recalls in 3:3, "For we too were once foolish..." We too were outsiders!
So as we finish this letter to Titus let us collectively hear the concluding words and challenges.
As we continue to focus on the two words "Welcome Home" be in prayer for our administrative committees as they begin our new budget process. Today I sent the chairs of our respective committees a two week prayer challenge leading up to our first committee budget meeting on Thursday evening March 8th.
I asked them, as well as I'm asking you, to pray specifically for;
- A collective direction
- Clarity for expenditures
- Wisdom in action
God is on the move @UABC!!!! It is a pleasure to be on this continued journey!!!!
