Coming This Week

I want to give you some encouragement from God's Word about how we should live our lives in the middle of a pandemic and nationwide confusion and chaos:

By faith..." For by grace you have been saved through faith, and that not of yourselves; it is the gift of God, not of works, lest anyone should boast." (Eph. 2:8-9, NKJV)

With confidence..." being confident of this very thing, that He who has begun a good work in you will complete it until the day of Jesus Christ;" (Philippians 1:6, NKJV)

In Jesus alone..." Nor is there salvation in any other, for there is no other name under heaven given among men by which we must be saved.” (Acts 4:12, NKJV)

"God has not given us a spirit of fear or timidity, but a spirit of power and love and a sound mind" (II Timothy 1:7).  The Bible reminds us that we serve a God who has given us everything we need to live out the Christ-life here on earth.  There is an eternal blessing that awaits His children.  There are eternal rewards that are to be gained that nothing in this life can take away.  

There is one thing on earth that you can do now, as a Christian, that you will not be able to do in heaven.  That one thing is to tell one more person about Jesus.  You will not be able to share Him with your lost family, lost friends, or lost neighbors. We must do that now.

My prayer, specifically for our church, as we enter into 2021, is that Auburn Baptist Church would continue to shine the light of Jesus to our world.  By being unashamed of the gospel and true to the mission and teachings we find in the Bible from Genesis to Revelation, I pray that God would raise up an army of believers that glorify God in our worship, serve God in our devotion, and honor God in our lives.  

Please make note of the following:

*We will have no in-person services on Sunday, January 10th.  Due to some of our staff testing positive for COVID-19 over the past week, among others, we have made the difficult decision to be ONLINE ONLY this week.  The church leadership felt this was best to help provide peace and comfort to others, as well as just a sense of responsibility in this time.  Although we will not meet together in a building this week, we do ask that you join us online.  Our prayer is that people will come on January 17th with a sense of peace and comfort.  

*The new deacon ordination services scheduled to take place on January 10th for Chris Basham, Josh Box, Patrick Graham, and Jeffrey Mann have been moved to January 31st. I ask that you continue to pray for these men, and all of our deacons, as we begin a new year praying together, studying together, growing together, and serving together.

It's a joy to serve the Lord as your pastor...Jimmy Henry
