Looking back over our last weekend at the church, I am amazed at the goodness of God. We had a great set of meetings, culminated by a sweet move of the Spirit in our services Sunday night. I cannot imagine a better way to celebrate our churches anniversary.
These occasions do cause me to pause and examine what it is that we are here in our community for. There is value in examining our activities and practices to ascertain whether they are in accordance with the will of God. We are challenged in the Word of God to “remove not the ancient landmarks” but what does that look like? In context, the Bible is referring to physical landmarks, boundaries of physical property, etc. In the spiritual realm, are there boundaries that we must hold to in our coming years at Rose Hill Baptist Church? I believe that there are and hope to use the coming weeks to dive into a number of those “landmark” issues. Included will be issues of practice, issues of tradition, issues of doctrine, issues of standards (both corporate and personal), and so forth. Please feel free to join in the discussion. I welcome any input as to subjects that need to be written about. I hope that you will commit to growing with me in these areas, as we seek to honor and please God in all that we do!
Here’s to another 78 years of …
