Thought For Today

Rwandan Man's Confession

In 1980 a young man from Rwanda was forced by his tribe to either renounce Christ or face certain death. He refused to renounce Christ, and he was killed on the spot. The night before he had written the following commitment which was found in his room:

ďIím part of the fellowship of the unashamed, the die has been cast, I have stepped over the line, the decision has been made- Iím a disciple of Jesus Christ. I wonít look back, let up, slow down, back away or be still.
My past is redeemed, my present makes sense, my future is secure. Iím finished and done with low living, sight walking, smooth knees, colorless dreams, tamed vision, worldly talking, cheap giving & dwarfed goals.
My face is set, my gait is fast, my goal is heaven, my road is narrow, my way is rough, my companions are few, my guide is reliable, my mission is clear. I wonít give up, shut up, let up until I have stayed up, stored up, prayed up for the cause of Jesus Christ.
I must go till He comes, give till I drop, preach till everyone knows, work till He stops me & when He comes for His own, He will have no trouble recognizing me because my banner will have been clear.Ē

What an awesome witness to leave behind!

What will you leave behind?

ďFor I am now ready to be offered, and the time of my departure is at hand.  (7)  I have fought a good fight, I have finished [my] course, I have kept the faith:  (8)  Henceforth there is laid up for me a crown of righteousness, which the Lord, the righteous judge, shall give me at that day: and not to me only, but unto all them also that love his appearing.Ē 2 Timothy 4:6-8 

Junior Church

We want to thank all of you who contribute to Junior Church each week. Whether it be in service, supplies, or snacks. We have been very busy these past few weeks. Due to the support for Junior Church, we have been able to purchase 8 brand new puppets, 10 hard back drill Bibles, A Christian and American Flag with stand, office supplies for our brochure and cards to hand out (These will be available soon), and storage boxes. Also the treasure boxes have been replenished. Praise the Lord! We are soooo blessed.
This week the theme is a lesson on slothfulness. As always we request your prayers.
With 8 new puppets, we would need some people just to puppets. If your interested just get with Bobby or April.
(4 girl puppets and 4 boy puppets) There is so much being planned: A Music CD with Songs of Junior Church.
(Coming soon) The Junior Church part of the web-site is about to take a new look. This is still in the planning stage, so keep this in your prayers. We love you New Center Baptist Church. You are such a blessing to us.
--Bobby & April, Connor and Rachel.
