MAKING READY PEOPLE FOR THE LORD IS OUR PRIORITY AND SHOULD BE OF EVERY CHRISTIAN.
The priority of our Bible Baptist Church is to glorify God!
Jesus singled out the greatest commandment to his disciples in Matthew 22:37 “Thou shalt love the Lord they God with all thy heart, and with all thy soul, and with all thy mind.”
Therefore the church is reminded in Ephesians 3:20 “Unto him be glory in the church by Christ Jesus throughout all ages, world without end. Amen.”
This priority should be carried out regardless of the activity says 1 Corinthians 10:31 “Whether therefore ye eat, or drink, or whatsoever ye do, do all to the glory of God.” In every activity, social event, ministry, service, class, and function, we want to glorify God with our attitudes and actions.
Paul explains this priority in Colossians 1:18 “And he is the head of the body, the church: who is the beginning, the firstborn from the dead; that in all things he might have the preeminence.”
Jesus Christ is number one…not the pastor, not a special family, not the wealthiest member, not a talented musician, not the properties, not our achievements…the LORD JESUS CHRIST is number one! He deserves the preeminence in Bible Baptist Church. Jesus gets all the glory, the praise, the honor, the credit, and worship…and any good people, any good accomplishments, any good talents, any good facilities, are directly the result of the blessings received from the Lord Jesus Christ, and we PRAISE AND THANK HIM!
