FOCUS: MISSIONS

     Southern Baptists are missions-minded people. Over 7,000 Southern Baptist missionaries are serving either in the United States, North America, or on foreign soil. The prophet Isaiah had a vision of God, a vision of himself, and a vision of a world in need when he answered God’s call to special service.

FOCUS: SOULS

     Periodically I receive information about continuing education courses and seminars that are offered by various universities and seminaries. The topic of one particular seminar was “Lostology” which may be defined as “the study or science of being lost.”

FOCUS

     The high school football stadium in the community where I was serving as pastor had a track that encircled the field. Many mornings I would arrive at the stadium early in the morning to run (actually to jog…more like a crawl).

ACCORDING TO THE WORD

     Children often sing, “The B-I-B-L-E, now that’s the book for me. I stand alone on the Word of God, the B-I-B-L-E.” The theme of Psalm 119 is the word of God. The psalmist highlights the theme and importance of God’s word by employing a different synonym (“law,” “statutes,” “commandments,” “word,” etc.) for God’s “word” in each verse of this longest of psalms.

THE CONQUEST OF THE CROSS

     Dictionaries typically define “conquest” within the context of a successful military exploit as presented by “the assumption of control of a place or people by military force.”  Secondary usages define the term as “the overcoming of a problem or weakness.”
