What We Need Most in 2012 & Always (Part 2)

Yesterday’s message from Acts 20:17-38 is now on the web. You can listen to the audio here.

Here’s how I summed up this second installment of what has become a three-part New Year’s mini-series:

Given grave threats to the church’s wellbeing, what it needs most is leaders and followers alike who focus on ultimate priorities – seeking the Lord in prayer and hearing His word of grace. What manner of people will we be at OGC in 2012 as we open our building and move into a new phase of our ministry? Let us be a Godward people. Two ideas for application this week:

  1. Determine some place and time where you will regularly meet with God for prayer and time in the word.
  2. Create some prayer cards for the most important people in your life per Paul Miller’s suggestion in his book, A Praying Life, and be sure to include a Scripture verse you will pray through regularly for each person/card.

Remember the admonition of Oswald Chambers in My Utmost for His Highest:

Jesus taught that a disciple has to make his relationship to God the dominating concentration of his life, and to be carefully careless about everything else in comparison to that.
