  • A Note from our Associational Mission Strategist
           In Mark, chapter 9, we see a picture of some powerless disciples. A man had brought his afflicted son to the disciples requesting help. And the implication of Scripture is that these disciples did everything in their power to help this man's son, but absolutely nothing happened.
           When Jesus came on the scene, there was an immediate healing. After this miracle, the disciples cornered Jesus, and they asked Him, "Why couldn't we have helped the boy?"
           And Jesus said to them, "There are some things that can only be accomplished by prayer and fasting."
           Now folks, what we have here is a picture of a powerful Christ, but a powerless church. The disciples represent to me a church, a believer, or even an association of churches operating in the energy of the flesh.
           This truth begs the question. How much do we rely on human energy or human talents; and how much do we rely upon the Holy Spirit and the same power that raised Jesus from the grave?
           If you took the Holy Spirit out of the equation here in the TBA, would it really change anything? How much are we relying on the Holy Spirit and the power of the living God to live the Christian life before our neighbors? How much are we relying upon the Holy Spirit to energize our churches; to empower our witness; enhance our ministry; to make effectual our prayers; to enliven our worship experience?
           You see, I long with a prayerful heart to see our churches capture the hearts of our community, serving as a catalyst to change the moral and spiritual climate of our society, having a global impact for the cause of Christ and winning hundreds of people to Christ here in our own community, and creating such a God-saturated atmosphere that life-change becomes inevitable to people who are touched by the ministry of the TBA.
           Remember...we serve a living Lord that empowers us with the same power that raised Jesus up from the grave (Philippians 3:10)! Join me in praying for revival in all our churches.

           In His Service,
           Henry Cannington
           (Mark 16:15)
    P.S. - Death has been defeated! Be praying about who you want to invite this Easter.
