"Plans for 2015"
As we head into a New Year, it is good to remind ourselves what God has called us to do as individuals and as a Church. Our mission statement says it clearly and concisely: Our mission is to Know Him and Share Him. After seeking God's direction for our church for this year, my thoughts turned toward how we can know Him and share Him more effectively. This year we will focus on prayer, fasting and meditation as a means of knowing Him and sharing Him. Each month we will focus on a key attribute of God.
January - The Glory of God July - The Truthfulness of God
February - The Love of God August - The Wisdom of God
March - The Will of God September - The Faithfulness of God
April - The Holiness of God October - The Wrath of God
May - The Knowledge of God November - The Mercy of God
June - The Fatherhood of God December - The Grace of God
The first Tuesday of each month will be a day of fasting for those who chose to participate. If this date doesn't work, feel free to choose a day which works best for you. On the days we are fasting, we will spend time praying and meditating on the attribute of God which we are focusing on for that month. Everyone will be given key passages of Scripture to aid us in our time of prayer and meditation. During our fasts, we should also be praying for the salvation of lost people we know. I anticipate God to move in mighty ways in our hearts through our times of prayer, fasting and meditation, which are keys to true prosperity and success in God's eyes.
Knowing Him and Sharing Him,
"Do not let this Book of the Law depart from your mouth; meditate on it day and night, so that you may be careful to do everything written in it. Then you will be prosperous and successful" (Joshua 1:8).
