Meet the Phillips Family, Missionaries to France

Periodically for my evening posts, I am going to do something a bit different, starting now. I would like to introduce readers to the Phillips family, recently called missionaries to France. Our church is not the sending church, that would be Calvary Baptist Church in Orlando Florida.

What makes brother Anthony and his family special is that he was brought up in our church and will always be family to many there. He went on after his time at our place to pastor a church in Arkansas, the on to Orlando where he has been the Pastor of Calvary Baptist church until he was called by The Lord to go to France.

Beloved, sometimes we just need to cut a brother or sister a little slack

Do We Recognize Jesus?

John 1_29

John 1:6-34

In his day, John the Baptist was what we might call a “big deal.” This man living in the desert, wearing clothes made from skins and living on locusts and wild honey was something special. We know he was because God’s Word tells us he was; any person called by God for a mission is something special. He must have been special, because the crowds thronged to the Jordan river to hear his message of repentance and to be baptized. He was a big enough deal that the Pharisees came out to harass and question him; John was a big enough deal to make them nervous.

John the Baptist, of course, understood just who he was and what his mission was. He was to “make straight the paths of the Lord.” When Jesus showed up this day, John immediately recognized and affirmed just exactly who Jesus was, “the Lamb of God, which taketh away the sin of the world.” In another gospel account, John the Baptist even said he, as big a deal as he was, was not even worthy to tie the shoe laces of Jesus.

How does the world react to Jesus today? Like John, we have seen the revelation of Him; we can all see it in the created world, and we can all read it in Scripture. We even have more than John the Baptist; we have history from the past and changed lives from today to testify of Jesus.

But, no, the world doesn’t react that way at all. “What sin?” we scream. “I don’t need some God to run MY life!” we yell. None of this matters. We have all sinned, and whether we own up to it or not matters not even a little bit. Jesus IS the lamb of God, come to take away the sins of the world, and each of us individually. Believe on Him today, and He will take away yours as well.

What “god” are WE serving?

And I Begin!

Hi All. Well I got my outlines in for my upcoming Devotional writing assignment! They send the outlines to the actual lesson writer, the writers for the commentary, and the Daily Devotional writers. We get the lesson outlines and the chosen devotional Scriptures, and off we go!

I have 8 weeks to turn in my manuscripts, and they will actually not publish until the Fall Quarter of 2018. I guess putting together lesson curricula is a long term sort of thing. So, I have 8 weeks to prepare 28 devotionals. It’s a semi large project, because in 28 days a lot of Scripture is covered, so much reading and studying to do before I even begin.

So, I’m going to dive into that pretty full force for a few weeks, and my posting will be semi random. If something just pops in my head as I study, I will chuck it on here. Maybe it won’t be as random as I think. Mostly I am going to release myself from the standing obligation to post things 4 times a day; I may very well still do it, but I am going to release myself from the pressure I feel to do so.

Finally, I am going to reorganize a bit a work and get myself to the point where I only leave home 5 days a week. I’ll still be on call, but not going anywhere makes a huge time difference.

Mostly, I am just staying loose and seeing what God unfolds here.
