I thoroughly enjoyed opening the Word (Acts 11:19-21) and sharing our ministry at Springdale Baptist Church recently! Truly, they are a great Church with a great heart for missions, locally and globally. Like the early Christians as found in these few verses, Springdale Baptist has a genuine heart and commitment to reach their community and beyond for Christ. This is huge because of its impact on the church, both spiritually and numerically. Housed within these verses we find that God used ordinary men in the planting and watering of the church at Antioch. I believe God is “Calling Out His Church” today to take more seriously the task before us, “World Evangelization!” In this clarion call from God, He reminds us of three things He has given us; 1) Resources (God’s enablement), 2) Role (Share Christ while making disciples of all nations) 3) Responsibility (We are to go across the street and across the world).
May our boldness for God be maximized as we mobilize the church for the cause of Christ!
