JUST CONSIDER: by Dr. Sid Sample
SEPTEMBER IS AN IMPORTANT MONTH! Many families are adjusting to School
Schedules. Summer is over and we are getting back in the routine of things. Hope-
fully, if you haven't already, you will make Worship, Bible Study and the Church in
general a priority for the family. We have a place, a ministry, for every member of
the family. The Church is instructed by our Lord to “make disciples”. It is impossi-
ble if you are not here. I am really proud of our programs and ministries and the
qualified leaders God has given us. So... join us in this grand ministry of Discipling.
As you read this Newsletter, you will notice the opportunities that are afforded you
and each member of your family.
WE SERVE A MIGHTY GOD: He is often limited by our lack of, or little faith. As a
Church, we are looking at a New Sanctuary and remodeling the present sanctuary
into a two story educational facility. It will take great faith! In the presence of the
King, we are to ask for BIG things.
The story is told that professional golfer Arnold Palmer was to play a series of exhi-
bition matches in Saudi Arabia. The King was so impressed with the golfer that he
offered him a gift. Not realizing that gift - giving is central to Saudi hospitality, Palmer
politely declined. The King was extremely offended and displeased. So Palmer
reconsidered. He said, "Well, how about a golf club?" Palmer was thinking of a
single club as a memento of his visit. The Saudi King was delighted.
The following day, a messenger delivered to Palmer's hotel the title to a fabulous
Golf Club with 36 holes, trees, lakes, club house, cart buildings, etc. The moral of
this story is clear: "In the presence of The King, don't ask for small gifts!"
HERE IS WHAT I HOPE YOU UNDERSTAND. We are not dealing with a small
proprietor when we talk about this New Life Baptist. This is God's Church and He
has demonstrated already what He can do and wants to do with New Life Baptist.
Let us not be guilty of shutting down the blessings of God with a lack of faith and a
small vision.
“EXPECT GREAT THINGS FROM GOD. ATTEMPT GREAT THINGS FOR GOD.”
This is a quote from William Carey who went to India as a missionary against all
odds. He is known as the "Father of the Modern Missionary Movement."
The Bible tells of many whose faith in God produced amazing results. Hebrews tells
of those “who through faith subdued kingdoms, worked righteousness, obtained
promises, stopped the mouths of lions, quenched the violence of fire, escaped the
edge of the sword, out of weakness were made strong” (11:33 - 34).
I WANT TO JOIN THIS GROUP OF BELIEVERS when it comes to the work of God
here at New Life Baptist. How about you?
