Who’s Your One?

Beginning in January, we are planning to emphasize people coming to know and follow Christ with a special emphasis called, “Who’s Your One?”

Have you considered what would happen if we all would simply seek to reach one person we already know for Christ? How many could be reached if we determined to pray daily for our ONE?

Last week, I heard Dr. Steve Horn, the new Executive Director of the Louisiana Baptist Convention talk about three numbers.

4,652,321–the approximate population of Louisiana

33–the number of cities of 3000 or population in Louisiana without a Baptist Church

1–that ONE person we all can pray for and seek to reach.

His point was that we can all do something about ONE person and that as a convention we can help plant new churches so that is not one place without a strong, Godly witness.

God has given us the privilege and responsibility of going into all the world with the Gospel. We should begin in our homes, schools, work places, and neighborhoods. We all know ONE. We all should seek to win that soul for Christ.

As we move through the Fall, we will prepare you for winning your ONE. In January, we will continue to equip to do the work of ministry as you pray for and reach your ONE.

Verse of the Day

When he had called together all the people’s chief priests and teachers of the law, he asked them where the Messiah was to be born. “In Bethlehem in Judea,” they replied, “for this is what the prophet has written: “‘But you, Bethlehem, in the land of Judah, are by no means least among the rulers of Judah; for out of you will come a ruler who will shepherd my people Israel.’” — Matthew 2:4-6 (NIV)
