"God's Unexpected Blessings"

As we pause to think about the ministry at First Baptist Church, one of the things that most characterizes ministry in the last few years is how many times we’ve encountered unexpected blessings from God.  We find ourselves drawn to ministry in ways we had not been considering.  People have been brought into our community that have filled a desperate need; deep, loving, caring faith-filled community is taking hold in incredible ways.  Time and again as we came up to a need for financial resources, someone stepped forward to meet that need. 

These are all signs that God is moving in our midst; that God has big plans for First Baptist Church and is bringing the people, the resources, the seeds of ideas and even the financial resources are being provided.  What we have to do is catch the wave of the Spirit, not become discouraged by the challenges of ministry, but allow ourselves to take in God’s unexpected blessings and be inspired to do far and above what we can imagine, and instead focus on what God is calling us to do.
