What's the big idea?
Psalm 37:5 - Commit your way to the LORD; trust in Him, and He will do it.
Last Sunday during service we unveiled the vision and direction we would love to see the church take this year. After discussions with both individuals and the church during a recent bible study, we discovered the heart cry of Staines Baptist finds it's voice around these three desires:
- Commitment to Christ
- Commitment to Church
- Commitment to Mission
During January we will be meeting weekly to pray. The deepest longing of the church is that we as individuals and in turn the church will be transformed by the Lord. Transformed in such a way that we all would be more fully committed to Christ, church and mission.
Each day this month you will receive a devotional with both a bible reading and a prayer point. Please take some time each day to read and then pray.
As we press on deeper into the presence of God and make humble petition to Him I believe He will transform our hearts. Be expectant of a new desire to commit to Christ, church and mission. As Psalm 37:5 says "He will do it".
Daily Bible Reading: Acts 4
Prayer: Father we pray you would impart to us a boldness by the Holy Spirit to tell people about Jesus as fervently as the early church did. Please give us a desire to gather like the early followers of Jesus, meeting each others needs and loving one and other sacrificially. But please Father above all things help us to know and love Jesus more than we every have before! Place in us a thirst for your word and illuminate our hearts and minds to see our Lord Jesus Christ! Amen.
