Partnership Developement Developement

Why do I word these things so? For one, to draw your attention to an article that otherwise you might not look at and two because I have some new news to share regarding status.

First: I had a meeting with my Pastor from our sending church last week. I was just asking some questions and was making sure that First Baptist St Marys still is seeking to be our sending church. He stated that our church is making every effort to do so (I have also talked to other people in the church and the attitude is that it is not even a question) and that he is trying to get it into our church budget in seed form this year so we can be ready when the time comes. Only hurdle has been created by myself in that my church still is not 100% sure what they need to be doing as our sending church, and my pastor would like me to get on that right away.

Second: I had a second preaching opportunity this past sunday at Browntown Baptist Church. This church is such a blessing as pastor Chris Johnson (pictured) and fam are 100% behind us and are probably our greatest encouragement right now. It's good to have friends who understand you. He asked me to preach on positional righteousness (no small task) and to listen to is just click here. I feel I made a better presentation this time around, but that's trivial.

It hit me not too long ago that people that God loves are dying every day and going to hell without the first chance to believe in Jesus. I am willing to go. I love those people with the love of the Spirit. But I am human. How much more does Christ, who has already died for them, love them? He will see to it that the Quasts get to them, I am sure of that. Why do I doubt God's faithfulness when He is not willing that any should perish?
