Pastor Post - March 30, 2022

Thank you all so much for praying for me during my recent trip to India!  I can’t wait to tell you more about it on Sunday.  Let me say this for now:  I felt your prayers every step of the way.  From beginning to end of this trip, the hand of God was on it.  We had smooth travel with no delays, and were able to utilize time to the max. God is doing some amazing things in this world, and he is using your giving and your praying.  In this one movement of God in Northwest India, almost a quarter of a million people have come to the Savior in the past decade and become reproducing disciples.  The sheer hunger for God we saw was amazing, as well as the joy and love in Christ that is demonstrated by these precious brothers and sisters.   

The move of God is so strong in this area that some questioned it.  They questioned whether something so amazing could be real.  Well, I’m here to tell you – we have an amazing God.  And he is able to do exceedingly and abundantly beyond all we could ask or imagine.  

And amazingly, he works through people like you and me.  As we pray, as we give, and sometimes as we have the opportunity to go…thank you for your support of the IMB and of your pastor as an IMB Trustee. 

I am so thankful you got to hear from a “native son” of FBC, Don Davidson.  A church is not measured by its seating capacity but its sending capacity, and Don is one of many this church has sent out into vocational ministry.  Let’s be looking for those divine appointments Don spoke about on Sunday.  Easter is coming soon.  Who will you invite to be with you on that day?  

This Sunday we will look at John 17:1-19 as we consider “The Prayer of Jesus, Part I”.  This week and next we will look at the high priestly prayer of Jesus, which encompasses all of chapter 17.  Our Upper Room series is brought to a climax with this prayer.  Read it over and meditate on it during your prayer time this week.  I’ll see you on Sunday…  

By His Grace, For His Glory, To The Nations,
