Sunday's Bulletin Message 6/09/2019
Mission Baptist Church's Theme for the third year:
“WHAT WOULD JESUS DO?”
We're discovering the words and deeds of our Lord Jesus Christ and attempting to apply them to our lives and the lives of our families.
I hope you're already asking this question at the beginning of any decisions you are making and I'm hoping that as you do, you are honestly attempting to “trust and obey”. A great theme such as “What Would Jesus Do?” only profits those applying what they learn. Today we're considering what Jesus taught us when he was confronted by the Sadducees. (Matthew 22:23-33)
Remembering the message from last sunday's Church Family Anniversary Service
“Not as though I had already attained, either were already perfect: but I follow after, if that I may apprehend that for which also I am apprehended of Christ Jesus. Brethren, I count not myself to have apprehended: but this one thing I do, forgetting those things which are behind, and reaching forth unto those things which are before, I press toward the mark for the prize of the high calling of God in Christ Jesus.” (Philippians 3:12-14)
1. We must Caught to Catch. That I may apprehend (laid hold on) that for which I also am apprehended of Christ Jesus. We're to catch others, and all God has for us!
2. We must Consider our present condition. Not as though I had already attained, either were already perfect. Where are we right now in our relationship with Christ?
3. We must continue on toward our Calling. I follow after, this one thing I do, forgetting those things which are behind, and reaching forth unto those things which are before, I press toward the mark. Go forward. To press requires effort and energy!
Together We Can,
Sr. Pastor Bill Rains
