August 2021

It’s August and it’s getting hot here in central Arkansas. So, as the weather turns hot, my prayer is that our hearts will get hot for God. I pray that we, Calvary Baptist Church, will catch fire from the Holy Spirit. Remember, in Acts 2 when the Holy Spirit came upon the first century believers they saw what seemed to be tongues of fire separating and coming to rest on each of them. When this happened, the empowered church radiated out into missional living for the glory of God. So Calvary, here are several discipleship opportunities that will light a fire under us:

In preparation for our fall preaching series at Calvary, I’ve recently been on a deep dive into the gospel of Luke. Luke’s gospel is filled with Jesus’ teachings that come to us in the form of parables. While we sometimes refer to parables as “earthly stories with a heavenly meaning,” Jesus was doing something deeper than offering an illustration or teaching a moral lesson.

Many of us have set out on an adventurous journey to some far away place of extraordinary beauty with young children in tow. And, if this has been you, you probably have vivid memories of the kids in the back seat asking for the hundredth time, “Are we there yet?” And then the moment finally arrives when you triumphantly announce, “Yes, we are here. We have arrived at our destination!” And suddenly, the grandiose beauty takes over. Perhaps it’s the view of the Grand Canyon or of Yellowstone National Park or of the Emerald Coast beaches in Florida that you and the kids suddenly get to experience. And when you do, there is an awe inspiring silence that takes over. And everyone expresses a collective “wow, this is really cool!”
