Mid-Week Musings from Lead Pastor Todd Malone
I wonder how often fear overrides love in our lives. Do we look at someone who is obviously Muslim and allow fear to keep us from entering into relationship? Do we do that with others – someone who is a different race, a different nationality, who dresses differently or has a different look? I suspect all of us allow fear to keep us from loving someone with the love of Jesus. I am praying that the Lord will increase my love so that I move beyond my fear.
How to pray for FBC
I am praying that our congregation would be fearless when it comes to the gospel. I am praying that we would love the people around us so much that it genuinely breaks our hearts if they do not know Jesus. Something extraordinary will happen when the love of God overcomes the fear of man in our lives.
How to pray for our Community
Pray that the Lord would give FBCers opportunities to build relationships with Muslims in East Texas. Pray that this opens doors to share the gospel.
How to pray for our World
FBC supports several missionaries reaching into the Muslim world. Pray for these missionaries to have open doors to make the gospel clear.
