In 1723 a young Jonathan Edwards was considering how to set the course of his life squarely upon the things of God, and so he began to write a set a resolutions to keep himself focused upon the things most important to a life of godliness. Each week I have been sharing one or two with you, not primarily as a way to remember church history, but as a call to live a life with serious consideration upon the things of God.
“Resolved, to live with all my might, while I do live.” (Edwards, 1723)
“Resolved, to endeavor to obtain for myself as much happiness, in the other world, as I possibly can, with all the power; might, vigor, and vehemence, yea violence, I am capable of, or can bring myself to exert, in any way that can be thought of.” (Edwards, 1723)

Sanctity of Human Life
Once each year the Southern Baptist Convention encourages churches to recognize and emphasize the sanctity of every human life on the third Sunday in January. We believe every person deserves honor, dignity, and protection from conception to death because each human being is created in the image of God. We will hear testimony Sunday and God’s heart as it relates to precious value of human life.
Marriage is instituted by God and a picture of the gospel. We know that God’s plan for every person does not include marriage, but for most Christians God will use marriage in their lives to present the gospel to the world, and as part of their own personal sanctification. We want to celebrate and honor the God ordained purpose for marriage. Please note the opportunity to celebrate marriage during our Church-wide Marriage Dinner on February 22, at 6:30 PM. You will see more on how to register on the slides below, and on Sunday.
