mediation_for_preparation-001

I hope God’s Spirit will fill you with eagerness to gather with Christ’s church  this Sunday.  You can view our service schedule online.  Some of the songs we plan to sing together are:

We will also have the joy of hearing Hoke give his testimony of faith in Christ as he seeks to become a member of Grace Baptist Church.

To prepare for the preaching ministry, spend a few minutes asking yourself why you do/don’t read God’s Word.

  • What motivates you to be in God’s Word?
  • What motivations to read God’s Word are found in the Bible?

In other words, what reasons would you give to someone for why they should read the Bible with regularity? Here are two Bible passages to contemplate:

  • 1 Peter 2:2 ESV,  “Like newborn infants, long for the pure spiritual milk, that by it you may grow up into salvation—”
  • Hebrews 11:6 ESV,  “And without faith it is impossible to please him, for whoever would draw near to God must believe that he exists and that he rewards those who seek him.”

Please pray! I believe praying about our time of gathered worship is a request God delights to answer.  Let’s be Spirit dependent now as we look forward to worshiping together this coming Lord’s Day.

Grace and peace to you in Christ,
