We are in danger of stopping short of the great commission. Some may think that we have fulfilled the great commission because we did an evangelistic crusade and many people came to know the Lord. So now we are tempted to think that we can kick up the recliner and cruise for a while. NO, NO, NO!!!! We are not done! Don’t misunderstand this as a rebuke, because it’s not. At least not yet. I see a danger and this post is preventive maintenance, so as, to steer us away from this pitfall. That pitfall being our sitting back and putting the car on cruise control thinking that our work is done. Don’t take me wrong. I’m so proud of everyone of you and the hard work you put into taking the gospel to this community, but our work is not done. The great commission is also about teaching and disciplining. We’ve sent letters and e-mails to all those who trusted Christ, and I’ve sent letters to all the pastors who had members believe the gospel here last week, but many who believed don’t have a church. It is our responsibility to go teach and disciple these babes in Christ. Please join me in fulfilling the great commission God has mandated for our church. We will leave the church tonight at 5:30 going to visit those new believers. Please come! If you can’t please pray!!!!
Also be praying for me as I prepare to preach God’s Word Sunday. Pray that God would preach to me and change me so that I might preach to you from the heart the things that God has preached to me. Pray for our youth, pray for our food pantry, pray for our clothing closet, pray for our school, pray for our mission team, pray for our deacons, and pray for our staff.
