Weekly Newsletter of First Baptist Church of Midway

Current Series

  What would happen if we truly embraced our mission to lead people to become fully devoted followers of Christ? We could become an unstoppable force. Join us as we look forward to what God has in store for us.

Last Sunday:

  There are three things that our church needs to agree on in order to become unstoppable for the cause of Christ. To do whatever it takes to show the love of God. To accomplish more together than alone, Finally, to make a difference.
  Sunday's message is available for streaming or for download on our website, just under the calendar, or by visiting us on iTunes.

Next Sunday:

  Next week, we will conclude our series, Unstoppable, by looking into having Unstoppable Idiots.

Hope for a Changing World

Romans 5

 

The rapid changes in our world can give us a sense of unease and uncertainty. We can be thrown off balance by the suffering we see around us, the evolving technology that outpaces our ability to absorb it, and the daily rise and fall of financial markets. Sometimes what seems worthwhile today has less value tomorrow.

 

As problems mount, we can become discouraged and lose heart. But basing all our hope on man's ability to solve problems or modify a situation is not the answer. We can achieve only temporary peace when we alter our own circumstances or adjust our outward behavior.

 

The root problem in our culture is spiritual - namely, man has a sin nature that is at enmity with God. Sin prompts us to look out for ourselves and pursue what we want. Neither our intellect nor talent could have changed our sinful state or brought us peace with God. However, those who trust Jesus as Savior receive a new nature and are reconciled to the Lord. As His adopted children, not only are we at peace with Him but we've also been given the power to live in harmony with one another.

 

No matter how much life changes, we can have hope, for we are anchored to a firm foundation that will never be shaken (Isaiah 28:16).

 

The believer's hope rests in the Triune God - Father, Son, and Holy Spirit. Our heavenly Father knows each of us by name (Isaiah 43:1). Our Savior keeps every divine promise (II Corinthians 1:20). And the Holy Spirit assures us that we are secure in Christ, both in this life and in the one to come.
