A Note From Pastor Alan
How are doing in daily Bible readings? If you are following along with our chronological readings, you know we've been in Deuteronomy this week.
One verse stuck out to me: "And now, Israel, what does the LORD your God ask of you except to fear the LORD your God by walking in all his ways, to love him, and to worship the LORD your God with all your heart and all your soul?" Duet. 10:12
That verse has a timeless principle in it. Though it was written to Israel as they prepared to enter the Promised Land, it's true for us today. What does God ask of us? To fear the Lord goes beyond terror. It expresses reverential awe, the kind one shows in the presence of transcendent and awesome power and that motivates one to worship and obedience. Proper fear of the Lord leads to a godly walk or lifestyle. The more you walk in His ways, the more you discover how to love with all your heart and out of the abundance of love comes worship!
Let me encourage you to develop a healthy fear of God. Stay in His word, learn His ways, and walk in them. Then as you get closer to Him, let your worship ring out!
As always, Onward and Upward!

Pray For Our Missionaries
“Christianity is prevalent in Kenya; however, the majority of Christians have a misconstrued view of Jesus and the Bible,” say IMB missionaries Daniel and Kristen Lowry.
Daniel is dedicated to teaching truth and training faithful preachers of the Gospel. A professor at the Kenya Baptist Theological College and Seminary, Daniel has opportunities to teach truth and correct misunderstandings of the Gospel among Kenyan ministry students.He and the other professors desire to see Kenyans leading churches who are faithful to God’s Word. Additionally, Daniel wants to see students trained in practical application by partnering students with faithful pastors so the students can see first-hand how to live out what they are learning in the classroom.
THE COOPERATIVE PROGRAM is the financial fuel for reaching every person for Jesus Christ in every town, every city, every state, and every nation. Your support through the Cooperative Program assists missionaries like the Lowrys in their work to train local believers to disciple others.
PRAY for the Lowrys as they serve in Kenya, especially for Daniel and the other seminary faculty who are equipping Kenyan leaders who then equip other believers. Because of their dedication, God is on the move in Kenya.
