In the book of Numbers, Moses decided what information was needed before the people could enter the promised land, and he took careful steps to get that information. When you are making decisions or assuming new responsibilities, remember these two important steps. Ask yourself what you need to know about the opportunity, and then obtain that knowledge. Common sense is a valuable aid in accomplishing God’s purposes.
Whenever, people are moving from their comfort zone to the uncomfortable zone there will be “GIANTS’ to face. Some will face the giants of uncertainty, prejudice, racism, fear, lack of information, and etc. However, there is nothing more prevalent than facing the “GIANT” in the mirror and conquering him or her first before attempting to face other giants. The New Testament church has a responsibility in sharing the good news with people in the world. This task can become a “giant” for members of the church without faith, proper training, and etc. However, the Holy Spirit will assist New Testament Christians in facing this “giant” and conquering the mission the Lord has given us. (Matt. 28:18-20)
The Sinclair Church of Christ will reach higher ground when each member will be willing to assist in “FACING THE GIANTS.” The family should participate in Bible class, worship training classes, activities, and etc. The brothers should demonstrate initiative in leading the home as well as the congregation. The sisters should be supportive and encouraging in helping us meet our goals. The youth should be encouraged to participate in youth activities, and programs.
Sinclair, we should be encouraged to participate in “FACING THE GIANTS.” The words of Jesus are prevalent today, “The harvest is plentiful, but the laborers are few; therefore, beseech the Lord of the harvest to send out laborers into his harvest.” (Luke 10:2) Yes, Sinclair we should focus on restoring every family member in order to reach our goals for this year. Remember, you have not truly witnessed the East Texas Experience until you have worshiped at the Sinclair Church of Christ!
Your Brother in Christ,
