How you can shake the world for Jesus Christ

September 20, 2013

Trust in the LORD with all your heart,
            and do not lean on your own understanding.
In all your ways acknowledge him,
            and he will make straight your paths.

Proverbs 3:5-6

I’ll never forget when I went down to south Florida in 1981 to be the pastor of First Baptist Church of West Palm Beach. I was warned by a number of people that it was a terrible career move. “You can’t build a church in South Florida. Nobody goes to church there!”

They were partly right. There were 850,000 people in Palm Beach County and fewer than 50,000 of them attended church on Sunday. It definitely wasn’t the Bible belt. But our team at the church believed God was going to do something great. And we saw God reach nearly 1,000 people with the Gospel every year!

Often in life, God is going to call you to do things that don’t make sense when viewed through the world’s lenses. But it’s in those times that you’re being tested to see if you really trust God, or are just leaning on your own understanding.

Don’t let the fear of worldly failure keep you from stepping out and doing big things for God. Trust in His leading and remember He’ll work everything out according to His purpose. When you have that kind of faith, there’s no limit to how God can use you to shake the world for Jesus Christ!

Get the best from 2012 to be your best in 2013

Dear Friend,

While many pastors shy away from addressing controversial issues, I sincerely believe you need to hear straight, “bulls-eye” biblical teaching on many of today’s hot topics. Not only to grow in your faith as a believer, but to give winsome, compassionate answers to the hard questions our culture is asking.

That’s why I want to send you a special new resource today – my CD series called The Best of 2012.

This series contains 10 of my most popular and compelling messages from 2012, and it’s a resource that’s sure to help you in 2013 because it includes messages such as, “Are All Religions the Same?”, “Lessons on Leadership,” and “What Is a Christian?”

The Best of 2012 is my gift to thank you for your donation to help PowerPoint continue to proclaim God’s Word and truth ’til the whole world hears. So please request your copy when you give today.

Thank you!
