  • A Note from our Associational Mission Strategist
           "In our Covid 19, impersonal, woke world, it is easy to underestimate the significance of one. With so many groups, most of whom seem so much more capable, more gifted, more prosperous, more important than we feel we are, who are we to think our part amounts to much?
           Aren't you glad Patrick Henry didn't think that way? And Henry Ford? And Martin Luther King, Jr.? And Walt Disney? And Martin Luther? And Winston Churchill? And Jackie Robinson? And Irving Berlin? And Abraham Lincoln? And Charles Wesley? And Marian Anderson?
           "But it's a different world today, man. Back then, there was room for an individual to emerge or a small group, but now, no way!" Wrong. God has always underscored individual involvement...still does.
    • How many did it take to help the victim who got mugged on the Jericho Road? One Good Samaritan.
    • How many were chosen by God to confront Pharaoh and lead the Exodus? One.
    • How many sheep got lost and became the object of concern to the Shepherd? One.
    • How many did the Lord use to get the attention of the land of Palestine and prepare the way for Messiah? One.

           Never underestimate the power of one!
           Even a small association may get that same feeling where we say, "What can we do in this world of big city associations?" The Sandy Creek Baptist Association immediately comes to my mind. Through that one little, insignificant church in North Carolina...God sent a mighty revival growing that same church into an association in 1758 that started churches in South Carolina, Georgia, Tennessee, and throughout the South leading to the creation of the Southern Baptist Convention.
           With God working in and through the Taylor Baptist Association, I believe God wants this world to see what He can do through us! Ministry opportunities await our involvement. As is true of every person who stands in the gap, they are willing to get personally involved, to the point of great sacrifice. Please, put aside all excuses and ask yourself, "What should we be doing?" Let's get to it!!!
           Yes, with God's empowerment...we can make a difference. The question is, will we?

           Getting Involved to Make a Difference,
           Henry Cannington (Revelation 3:7-8)
