Pastor’s Notes – Bulletin for August 2

NTBC Theme for 2015

“Keep Faith Pristine In Twenty Fifteen”

‘Keep Faith Pristine in Twenty Fifteen’ is based on 2 Timothy 4:7 – I have fought a good fight, I have finished my course, I have kept the faith.  “To keep the faith” is to claim the promises in God’s Word and apply them to my particular problems. “To keep the faith” is confidence in God’s faithfulness to me in an uncertain world, on an uncharted course, through an unknown future

It’s not all about you! … It’s about COMPASSION for OTHERS!

A nurse related the following:  It was a busy morning, approximately 8:30 am, when an elderly gentleman, in his 80’s, arrived at the office to have stitches removed from his thumb. He stated that he was in a hurry as he had an important appointment at 9:00 am. I took his vital signs and had him take a seat, knowing it would be over an hour before one of our doctors would be able to see him.

I saw him looking at his watch and decided, since I was not busy with another patient, I would evaluate his wound. On exam, it was well healed, so I talked to one of the doctors, got the needed supplies to remove his sutures and redress his wound.

While taking care of his wound, we began to converse. I asked him if he had another doctor’s appointment this morning since he was in such a hurry. The gentleman told me no, that he needed to go to the nursing home to eat breakfast with his wife. I then inquired as to her health. He told me that she had been there for quite some time and that she was a victim of Alzheimer’s disease.

As we talked, and I finished dressing his wound, I asked if she would be worried if he was a bit late. He replied that she no longer knew who he was, that she had not recognized him for the last five years.

I was surprised, and asked him. “And, you still go every morning, even though she doesn’t know who you are?

He smiled as he patted my hand and said. “She doesn’t know me, but I still know who she is.”

Why are Bible Believing Baptists so

OBNOXIOUS to Secular Humanists?

As “born-agains” faithfully expressing our convictions, we are increasingly offensive to brain-washed, liberal Americans!

1)    Why? Because we are convinced that we have an inspired and preserved Bible that is absolute and final on all issues of life and living (2 Tim. 3:16, 17).

2)    Why? Because we are adamantly intolerant to any authority that is not under God’s authority (Acts 5:29).

3)    Why? Because we are determined to preach the Bible message that the Lord Jesus Christ is the only way of eternal life (Acts 4:12).

4)    Why? Because we are zealous about reaching people for our Creator-God as did the first-century Bible believers “turning the world upside down” (Acts 17:6).

5)    Why? Because we are committed to separation from the world-system, i.e., a regimen that confirms and attests true salvation by lifestyle changes (2 Cor. 5:17).
