  • A Note from our Associational Mission Strategist
           On a church sign in upstate South Carolina, a pastor placed his sermon title.."THIS SUNDAY YOU HAVE 24 HOURS TO LIVE!" With a packed house that Sunday morning, the pastor restated his sermon title saying if our sign were a little bigger, my sermon title would have read, "YOU HAVE 24 HOURS TO LIVE TODAY...that is!
           The small sign served as a catchy reminder that we should live each day as if it were our last?for it might be! As we stand on the threshold of a new year, this world needs to be made aware of the relentless march of time. Each moment carries us inevitably closer to eternity. In my office, the clock on my wall reads from Ephesians 5:15-16 "Be very careful, then, how you live?not as unwise but as wise, making the most of every opportunity..."
           We must be sure we are utilizing every opportunity to glorify the Lord by helping others, keeping ourselves unspotted from the world, and sharing Christ with everyone and everywhere. Time is too precious a gift, to rare a commodity for us to waist here in Taylor county. Each moment holds an occasion for prayer, Bible study, kindness, and soul winning! This truth should warm our hearts to our mission and God given opportunities for us here in the TBA.
           Check our activities and opportunities this month we have lined up for all of our churches, community, and believers. I know all the men will want to join us at Oakland Baptist on January 17th for an excellent program and some super Taylor county food. Mullet! Swamp cabbage! Cheese grits! And a bunch more of our favorites! Our special guest from Explore God's World Adventure Ministry (www.exploregodsworld.com) vow to share with us how God is using them to touch many lives on the rivers in Taylor, Madison, and Jefferson counties. Let's get the word out and invite all the men in our area to join us for this spectacular event.
           I also want you to put on your calendar and plan for this major event for our churches and association coming on February the 20th. The "GET FIRED UP CONFERENCE" promises to be an awe-inspiring encounter with God. God is bringing two of His choice servants, Dr. Tommy Green and Ted Traylor, to challenge and energize us to reach this community for Christ. Make plans now to join us the Sunday evening at First Baptist of Perry for this spiritual encounter.
           Christian, as you enter 2022, determine to make the most of each passing moment. Join us in these opportunities for ministry and service. To get full value out of the time God has given you, live a service-filled, Spirit-controlled life!
                             Serving Our Lord,
                             Henry Cannington
                             (Ephesians 5:15, 16)
