“….you are worried and upset about many things. Only one thing is important.” Luke 10:41b-42a
Jesus spoke the words above as He was having a meal in the house of Martha and Mary in Bethany. As you know, Mary was intently listening to the teaching of Christ as her sister Martha prepared the supper.
I don’t believe our Lord was saying that preparation and planning are not important, but He was redirecting our priorities toward the only object of our work: the worship and glorification of our Redeemer Jesus Christ.
Lakewood Baptist Church is a church on the move. On many different fronts, we are following our Lord into the battle for the increase of the Kingdom Of God.
As we press on, however, we want to be sure that we are taking time to stop and sit in the presence of the Lord, with no agenda but to worship and glorify Him. Don’t miss Jesus-He’s why we’re here …
As you read this column, Lord willing, our summer mission team is reaching out for Jesus in Talladega. We certainly appreciate your prayers!
Come to Lakewood Baptist Church this Sunday and expect to see people saved and lives restored by the power of the Holy Spirit!
Our Lord’s Servant, Pastor Terrell Boyd
