I pray as you read this you are being built up in the Spirit of God!
Over the next few weeks we are going to focus on the “Writings on the Wall.” No worries, it is not the figurative writings on the wall, but the literal writings on the wall.
This year we installed six banners to hang in our sanctuary. While some thought they were just for color, which they do add a nice splash of color to the room, they were really to remind us and convey to others what it takes for us to be the best Second Baptist Church of Asbury Park.
The leaders of this church in a retreat did an examination of this ministry and discerned that there were six areas of Christianity and ministry in which we needed to focus as a church constantly and continually in order to be all that God has called us to be.
These areas are:
- Global Missions
- Relationship with Pastor
Let us pay attention to the writings on the wall so that we become a church excelling in each of these areas to the glory of God!
It is my belief and hope that when these switch from areas of focus to markers of our church then we will see the great that we are expecting together!
