40 Days of Prayer.
I am so thankful that you have chosen to join us on this journey. Over the next 40 days we are going to be looking at God’s Word and letting it guide our prayer. We believe that God has big things in store for SBC. God is going to use these next 40 days to challenge us and lead us to be a more faithful church. I hope that you will be prayerful and pray for big things!
Read: Acts 14
First I want to thank you for your faithfulness to SBC. Although we are apart we continue to be faithful in our love for one another, our worship of the risen King, and giving to your local congregation. Remember you can give through our website at sbcky.org/give or mail your offering to P.O. Box 286 Springfield KY 40069. I pray that we are able to gather soon.
In Acts 14 there is a lot of unique things going on. One being a man that was unable to walk from birth is healed. When Paul and Barnabas perform the miracles they do the people seek to worship them. They begin to make sacrifices to them. This of course upsets Paul and Barnabas as they explain that they are merely men. When I read this it reveals to me the longing of the human heart. Our hearts are always inclined to worship. It is never an issue of “if we worship”, rather “whom we worship.” We see in the book of Romans that Paul says that they have exchanged the truth for a lie. This is what is happening in Acts 14. This is what happens in our world today. This is what happens in our own hearts. We all have the same sin struggle, the struggle of idolatry. It may be that your idol is money, sex, someone or self. We often turn to our false gods and worship creation over the creator. This is where we must constantly remind ourselves and repent. There is only one true God and He does not share His glory.
Where does your heart often turn? Look at times of hardship, look at times of blessing? Where does your worship go?
