Coming up at Solid Rock!

I'm really looking forward to the next three weeks!

We're scheduled to have guest speakers at Solid Rock for the next three Sundays. First, Dr. Doyle Jones will speak at the 10:30 service next Sunday, January 30th. The week after that, Benny Ferguson will be here from Springfield, MO to speak at the 6:00 service. Then on February 13th, Sam and Rose Molina will be at the 6:00 service to speak to our couples.

It's gonna be a great stretch!

Don't Stand Still

Many people like to take advantage of a new start to make resolutions and set goals at the beginning of the year. Personally, I think that's smart. We become what we're committed to.

I think we should use this time of year to evaluate our spiritual life and decide that we're going to to grow spiritually. That is probably the biggest resolution we can make.

But as we all know, it's not easy to persevere through all the obstacles that daily living brings. That's why I really appreciate the book of Hebrews, which has a recurring theme of "don't give up, continue to move forward".

Hebrews warns us not drift, slip, or shrink back in our spiritual walk. That's a serious warning because if we're not moving forward, we're falling back.

In other, words, there's no standing still with God.

Make a determination that 2011 will be a year of spiritual growth for you.
