Pastor's Paragraph, 10/30/2018
Dear Church Family,
We have finished our Sunday Night class looking over the state of the American evangelical church and how FBCBC reflects these aspects. The challenges ahead are monumental, but not insurmountable. We will need to “adapt, improvise, and overcome” to get back “on mission” and be a church which is built to impact the current culture and reach those yet “unborn.” God is prepping us to sail into the great “unknown” to share Christ with a people we have yet to even meet. Are you ready for the adventure?
Sunday morning we continue our sermon series through the Psalms, “Songs for the Soul.” In Psalm 117 we witness the writer avoid “beating around the bush” and just “cut to the chase.” Sometimes brevity is refreshing and helps one concentrate on what is most important. The whole psalm is composed of two lines. “Praise the LORD, all nations! Extol him, all peoples! For great is his steadfast love toward us, and the faithfulness of the LORD endures forever. Praise the Lord.” (V. 1-2) Every verse in Scripture from “In the beginning, God created the heavens and the earth.” (Genesis 1:1) to “The grace of the Lord Jesus be with all. Amen.” Revelation 22:21) and every verse in between is meant to declare the truth of God’s steadfast love and faithfulness. Today is the perfect time to stop and join in with the writer of the psalm declaring this truth over the whole of your life. Got praise? Got gratitude? Give God the glory He richly deserves.
FBCBC is where the “impossible” is a living reality everyday and we are about Connecting Christ to people. Invite 3 to come connect, celebrate and contribute to what God is doing at FBCBC.
For His Glory,
