Pastor Mark's Weekly Update January 18, 2019

 

Resolutions

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 Dinner

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.

Staff Changes

As you are aware Rebekah Juarez left her position as the Administrative Assistant for Finances in the church office.  We posted the job for this, interviewed several candidates, and ultimately hired Deanna Hollis to fill this role.  Deanna began her new role this week.  Deanna was already an administrative assistant responsible for publications and communications.  She has been faithful and excellent in her role.  We are excited to see her bring more of her work background to her new position.  We have hired Whitney Steger as the next Administrative Assistant over Publications and Communications.  She also began Monday.  We gladly welcome Whitney to our church staff.

 

Resolved

Last week I introduced you to the resolutions of Jonathan Edwards.  May we be inspired to live with the kind of fire and commitment young Edwards felt almost 300 years ago.  Here is another of his resolutions.  May you and I see God’s glory as clearly.

“Resolved, never to do any manner of thing, whether in soul or body, less or more, but what tends to the glory of God; nor be, nor suffer it, if I can avoid it.” – Edwards, 1723.

 

The Death of Tyler Trent

If you follow College Football it would have been hard not to hear of Tyler Trent; Purdue University’s most ardent support, 20 years of age, and riddled with cancer.  Tyler was also a strong Christian, and he went to be with the Lord not many days ago.  Here is an article about Tyler that was written by his pastor, and one that you should read.  Click on the title to be taken to the article on the Desiring God website:  “May His Cancer Heal Millions”.
