I want to share a sermon by Pastor Andy Stanley called Saved by the Church. Like him I also was saved by my church Malesus Baptist Church. I was raised by my heroes Blake and Dale Jolley who never gave me a choice of whether or not I would go with them to church on Sunday morning, and that has made all the difference in my life. I owe more than I can even understand to children’s workers, music leaders like Billy Max and Barbara Mayo, Actions leaders, GA leaders, youth pastors and pastors who faithfully taught me God’s Word.
Parents, find a church this morning that is teaching God’s Word. Let them help you in the battle called parenthood. For those of you beyond those years or without children, I cannot imagine going onto the battlefield tomorrow without spending today begging my Creator God to help me, to save me for all eternity and for Monday morning.
