Preparing for the Lord's Day This Week
Do you ever watch the daily news or read your local paper and find yourself asking the question, "What in the world is going on??" I think we all do that, some of us more than others, I suppose. The fact of the matter is, there is A GREAT DEAL going on in our world that, quite frankly, doesn't make a whole lot of sense. These are the times when we need a word from God...and we have it in the Bible! As our world looks at an all too uncertain future, we who believe in Christ and believe in God's Word still have hope! And we forward to a day when our God, through Christ, will make all things right and all things new!
But how can we know what's going to happen? How can we make sense of this world and all of its uncertainties and disturbing happenings? Our God has not left us without a witness about what the future holds. Jesus Himself spoke to his disciples about these things in what is sometimes called "the Olivet Discourse," a prophetic word given from the Mount of Olives just days before His death in Jerusalem. We find it in three NT passages, but the most well-known is Matthew 24. That chapter will be the focus of our attention this coming Sunday. If you want to know what the "Signs of the Times" are, then you will want to be here!
If you can't be here in person, then we also invite you to join us by means of our Facebook page ("First Baptist Church of Ceredo"), or on this website. But whether in person or virtually, please plan on joining us for worship and a special time in the Word of God!
