I can’t believe that it’s already February!

    This is always a special month in the life of the church.  The annual Valentine’s Day Banquet is a very special night.  The food is always outstanding (Prime Rib!) and the entertainment and fellowship can’t be matched!  Please consider coming!

    We have also returned to the International Mission field this month.  In fact, as you’re reading this John Mayes and I will be in Senegal seeking God’s plan for our part in the Great Commission.  Mission success is predicated on the church’s prayer.  Please be praying for our Senegal mission work and for the upcoming Puerto Rico mission work.  In fact, be praying for all of our mission work!

    Acts 1:8… But you shall receive power when the Holy Spirit has come upon you; and you shall be witnesses to Me in Jerusalem (Seabrook), and in all Judea (Texas) and Samaria (North America), and to the end of the earth.”

    We are also a month away from the annual Chili Cook-Off.  Just thought I’d warn you!

    I’d like to quickly share with you something we discussed at Men’s Monday Night.  We were reading the story of Mary and Martha in the gospel of Luke (Luke 10:38-42).  The topic of our discussion was priorities.  What was more important, the relationship or the task?  Love the Lord with all your heart or Go ye into all the world?

    The answer, of course, is the relationship with the Lord is more important than the task.  We ended with the encouragement that Jesus told Martha “Martha, Martha, you are worried and troubled about many things. But one thing is needed, and Mary has chosen that good part, which will not be taken away from her.”

    Mary had chosen to spend her time at the feet of Jesus.  And so should we.  In the days ahead, as we get busier and struggle to prioritize our spiritual life and our service, let us remember that our time with Jesus is the priority.  That’s what allows us to do everything else.

    Matthew 6:31-34…“Therefore do not worry, saying, ‘What shall we eat?’ or ‘What shall we drink?’ or ‘What shall we wear?’ For after all these things the Gentiles seek. For your heavenly Father knows that you need all these things. But seek first the kingdom of God and His righteousness, and all these things shall be added to you.Therefore do not worry about tomorrow, for tomorrow will worry about its own things. Sufficient for the day is its own trouble.”

    God bless, Pastor Rob
