I spent a good part of today talking with different members of the GBC Evangelism team. They are really "fired up" about all the plans for reaching out to the lost of Georgia -- especially all the collective efforts planned for 2010!
That's where we come in!
We have the challenge of engaging each person of our area with the Gospel of Jesus Christ. I will be meeting soon with the Evangelism Committee and sharing with them several ideas for how we can achieve this goal in the Western Baptist Association. Please make this a matter of prayer. Pray that we will be ready to "do whatever it takes" to reach the lost.
Our Lord said to His disciples many years ago, "Look, the fields are white unto harvest!" (John 4:35) If we could hear the Lord speaking to us today, I believe He would say the exact same thing to us. People are looking for spiritual answers, they are looking for relief from the load of guilt under which they suffer each day, they are looking for stability, they are looking for significance, they really are looking for hope, they are looking for...Jesus!!
Jesus is the answer. We want to share Him with them!
When we do, we will really be...
Growing Together for His Glory!
