Summer Thoughts
DATE POSTED: 06/26/2018  |     |   Category: Shoulder to Shoulder

Summer is here and I am thankful for several things:

  1. The pace of life changes.
    Things like family reunions and trips that get us out of our routine happen.  There is more daylight to get things “done,” and we can work on a sun tan if we wish.  It’s a time of transition for some, leaving behind what has been accomplished and embracing something new.
  2. The discipline to read.
    I am being challenged by people like Luis Ángel Díaz-Pabón, a Puerto Rican evangelist and author of Secretos de Fe para una vida abundante (Faith Secrets for an Abundant Life), who touches on various facets of faith. For instance, he states that we are born with the same amount of faith as were Abraham, Peter, Paul or Elijah: none.  As we are exposed to God’s Word, God births faith in us and develops it in an active relationship to Him. The key, then, is to be exposed to God’s Word in our daily life. This brings me the challenge to not only be exposed to His Word but to expose others to it.
  3. A time to plan ahead.
    As the Hispanic Bible Institute progresses through its 1st curriculum year, leaders will be meeting this month with the director of the Louisiana Baptist University to chart a course for partnership with LBU on a Bachelor of Theology degree.

Summer is an exciting time, and I am thankful to each of you for our partnership in being changed by His Word and exposing those in Denton County to faith in Christ!
