My pastor on “The Great Commission and Me.”

My senior pastor Al Gilbert has written a post for the “Praying for a Great Commission Resurgence” website titled;

“The Great Commission and Me.”

I encourage you to read it. I also encourage you to pray for our Southern Baptist churches. As pastor says,

“In Luke 24:44-48 Jesus explained that He is the central Person of the Old Testament. He said: “…things written about Me in the Law of Moses, the Prophets, and the Psalms…” As we look to the future of the Southern Baptist Convention we must keep the Person and work of Christ at the center of our focus and our message. He alone is worthy to be worshiped!

Jesus also explained the central purpose for His followers. He said, “…repentance and forgiveness of sins should be proclaimed in His name to ALL NATIONS (peoples).” We, His Church, have been given “the ministry of reconciliation.” 2 Cor. 5:18…

As Southern Baptists we are doing a lot of good things in our churches and denomination but not all of them are accomplishing this Great Commission purpose. The time has come for us to fall on our faces and ask God how to focus the task we’ve been given…telling the world about Jesus.”

    Nothing is more important than sharing about Christ. Our churches should always keep this in the forefront. Thank you for encouraging people to pray for Southern Baptist churches.
