Remarks From The Pastor - February 24, 2019

Welcome to Temple Baptist Church.

Senior Pastor Tom Porter

Senior Pastor Tom Porter

Today is the beginning of a four day revival – four days of coming together as a church to every meeting for the purpose of a personal spiritual renewal and reawakening to the will of God. Revival brings about a spirit of humility and a desire for repentance and spiritual growth. I am asking God to invigorate and deepen my faith. We all need to pray that God will help us with a fresh start, a clean slate, giving us a sense of a new beginning of living our lives in obedience to Him. We need to ask God to break the charm and power of Satan and the world and give us the power and will to live in the world but not be of the world. Colossians 3:2 says, “Set your affection on things above, not on things on the earth.” The evidence of revival is an outpouring of the Holy Spirit upon believers and changed lives. Let us pray that we as a church will move towards righteousness and evangelism; that we as a church are once again spending time in prayer and reading and obeying God’s Word. Let us pray that we as a church will begin to powerfully use our spiritual gifts. Let us all pray that there will be confession of sin and repentance. Psalm 51:10 says, “Create in me a clean heart, O God; and renew a right spirit within me.” Revival will start by you committing to attend every meeting through Wednesday night.
