Foundation Conference

I taught Sunday school, preached Sunday morning and Sunday evening for Dr. Michael Watkins. He pastors the Lighthouse Baptist Church of Eustis, Florida. We had a packed out building and 12 professions and 6 baptisms Sunday. Today Dr. Monte Watts drove in from Mocksville, NC, to open up the FOUNDATION CONFERENCE for our host Lighthouse Baptist Church. The building was packed with chairs having to be put up to accommodate the crowd. Dr. Watts preached from Luke 7:5, "For he loveth our nation, and he hath built us a synagogue." WOW! What a great truth. He asked two questions; "What have you built" and "Who have you built" for God. TREMENDOUS! I preached second the sermon "THE DANGER OF CHANGE." There are two words we need to be aware of and they are the word "CHANGE" and the word "IMPROVEMENT." We mistakenly pray, "Oh God change me!" No, we should pray, "Oh God improve me!" Change comes from doing nothing! Improvement comes on purpose by doing something. It is the Law of Thermodynamics at work when it comes to change. Do nothing and everything automatically deteriorates. It is the old adage of live fish swim up stream and dead fish float down stream. Services will begin at 9:30 in the morning!
