Together for the Gospel Conference and did not.
Pray that every Sunday service would proclaim The Truth of Scripture.
In the New Testament, the proclamation of the word is the basic means for creating and growing ‘Christ-learners’. You could even say that there is only one central activity in making disciples—the speaking of the word of God —and that all the other elements describe in what Spirit, by which people, and in what manner that speaking is done. (84)
Making disciples is not primarily a human activity with goals that we set (although it is those things in a subsidiary sense). Whatever happens in Christian ministry and in church, and whatever happens in our neighborhoods and families and work places, is part of what God is doing to move all things inexorably towards their goal and end—which is Jesus Christ. (59)Pray that WCBC would make disciples who make disciples.
At a time when children are regarded as an optional accessory to the good life or written off as an obstacle to it, we do well to return to the infallible Word of God to once again establish God’s purpose for having children. We have children to obey God, to experience his blessing, to have the joy of making disciples, and to grow in our conformity to him. Children are a great gift of God.
The law of the LORD is perfect, restoring the soul;HERE is a link to a journal article by John MacArthur about the Sufficiency of Scripture and this Psalm. The article concludes with the following statement.
The testimony of the LORD is sure, making wise the simple.
The precepts of the LORD are right, rejoicing the heart;
The commandment of the LORD is pure, enlightening the eyes.
The fear of the LORD is clean, enduring forever;
The judgments of the LORD are true; they are righteous altogether.
They are more desirable than gold, yes, than much fine gold;
Sweeter also than honey and the drippings of the honeycomb.
Moreover, by them Thy servant is warned;
In keeping them there is great reward.
Who can discern his errors? Acquit me of hidden faults.
Also keep back Thy servant from presumptuous sins;
Let them not rule over me;
Then I shall be blameless,
And I shall be acquitted of great transgression.
Let the words of my mouth and the meditation of my heart
Be acceptable in Thy sight,
O Lord, my rock and my Redeemer.
There is no substitute for submission to Scripture. Your spiritual health depends on placing the utmost value on the Word of God and obeying it with an eager heart. If you think you can find answers to your spiritual problems through human counsel or worldly wisdom, you are forfeiting the most valuable and only reliable source of answers to the human dilemma. Do not relinquish the sweet, satisfying riches of God’s Word for the bitter gall of this world’s folly.In WCBC's Adult Bible Classes on April 8th, the classes looked at three characteristics of Scriptures: inspiration, inerrancy and authoritative.
To Proclaim through word and deed the good news of Jesus Christ
This Gospel Proclamation is Biblically based and Biblically focused.
Pray that WCBC would always remember what Jesus commanded disciples to do and say.By Biblically-focused, we mean the truth of the Bible is the main thing. We want to live life for God and His glory. We know the only way this can be done is by deepening our understanding of and our relationship with God according to His Word. Read Psalm 119 for a reminder of the importance of God's Word.
Pray that WCBC would always do the God's work God's way, according to His Word.
