To bring people to Jesus Christ and membership in His family, develop believers to Christlike maturity, and equip them for their ministry in the church and their mission in the world, in order to worship God and magnify His name.
"In preparing for eternity, it is more important to be ready than to get ready"
Thoughts and Intentions Exposed
But seek ye first the kingdom of God, and his righteousness; and all these things shall be added unto you. Matthew 6:33
For the word of God is quick, and powerful, and sharper that any two-edged sword, piercing even to the dividing asunder of soul and spirit, and of the joints and marrow, and is a discerner of the thoughts and intents of the heart. Hebrews 4:12
The writer of Hebrews understood the power of the living Word. Cultural standards my change. Legions may declare that they no longer believe the Bible. Religion may be removed from public life. But none of that changes the truth that the Word of God is alive and well, speaking power into the lives of those willing to read it and apply its truths.
I recall sharing Scriptures at the funeral of a non-religious person when I was serving as a church planting missionary in Vermont. The family had no religious background, but two of the grandchildren had come to church occasionally, so they asked me to perform the funeral. Something as simple as reading of Scripture spoke peace and comfort into the hearts of even this non-religious family.
No matter how busy we get in life, it is important that we spend time each day in the Word. As we read, meditate on, and apply God’s Word, we find strength, hope, and power for daily living.
Father, help me take the truth I read in the Bible and apply it to my daily life.
