Dear FBC Faith Family,
May I share a question that consumes my thinking as a Christian and a pastor?
How can the people of God in the Spirit of God with the Word of God be unleashed to reflect more and more of God’s greatness?
Oh, how I pray our lives at FBC would count for His glory and greatness. But that does not just happen automatically. You and I must seek God about: how is He currently using me for His Kingdom and how might He want to use me in greater ways to reflect Jesus’ greatness? One of the ways Jesus told His followers to be and do is in Matthew 28:19: Go and make disciples of all people groups. You and I cannot be used of God to make disciples if we are not continuing to allow God to make us into the person He calls us to be which is:
establish yourself upon a solid biblical foundation (Matt. 7:24-27; 1 Tim. 4:16);
equip yourself with a faith community to participate in God’s grand story (Eph. 4:11-12);
empower yourself through the Holy Spirit and His Holy Word (2 Tim 3:16-17; Acts 1:8);
engage in your local and global community to be a blessing (Gen 12:2-3).
We as elders at FBC encourage you to take a journey to discover with greater clarity the significant role God has for you in participating in His Kingdom to make disciples of all people groups. This is a journey that you cannot rush through.
We encourage you to take the time to reflect and fill out a Personal Disciple-Making Plan. Print out a copy for yourself and then send us a copy so that we may pray for you and walk along side you on your spritual journey.
We are praying for you,
Pastor Travis & the Elders
