FIRST-PERSON: Abuse response ‘absolutely necessary’ to model Christ-like compassion

Jesus prioritizes children and their care. We see this in verses like Matthew 19:14, where Jesus says, “Let the little children come to me and do not hinder them, for to such belongs the kingdom of heaven,” and Matthew 18:6, where Jesus says, “Whoever causes one of these little ones who believe in me to sin, it would be better for him to have a great millstone fastened around his neck and to be drowned in the depths of the sea.”

FIRST-PERSON: Hope before, during and after travesty in Ukraine

RICHMOND, Va. (BP) – Seeing firsthand the tragedy happening in the Ukraine was sobering. So much has changed since I first visited the border less than a week after the Russian invasion, but one thing remains the same: Southern Baptists are there.

FIRST-PERSON: Hope always

Hope. Merely reading the word can stir our emotions, inspire positive thoughts and lift our spirit.

FIRST PERSON: I’m asking for it

In this season, when I am meeting with many state conventions and associations, God has directed me to Romans 10:8-15. Paul’s words are a great reminder of why God still has us on earth and why the IMB still has a job to do. Our mission is to serve Southern Baptists in carrying out the Great Commission to make disciples of all nations.

FIRST-PERSON: Southern Baptists sending very best to the nations

NASHVILLE (BP) – In late July, Michelle and I, along with two of our daughters, traveled overseas, where we met with more than 60 of your missionaries and their kids. We were so encouraged by the days we spent visiting with them and were again reminded that Southern Baptists have sent their very best to the nations.

Llegar hasta el borde de la perdición

Mateo 24:14 registra estas palabras de nuestro Señor: “Y este evangelio del reino se predicará en todo el mundo como testimonio a todas las naciones, y entonces vendrá el fin”.

FIRST-PERSON: Getting to the Edge of Lostness

More than 7,200 people groups remain unreached and more than 3,100 are yet to be engaged with the gospel. Every single day 155,473 people die lost around the world.

FIRST-PERSON: Loving the lost through Cooperative Program giving

RICHMOND, Va. (BP) – I recently had the privilege of preaching at First Baptist Church of Murray, Ky., in conjunction with the celebration of the church’s 175th anniversary. One of the many unique aspects of this historic church is the fact that the Cooperative Program was birthed at First Murray where, in 1900, Pastor H. Boyce Taylor led the church to adopt a unified budget plan to provide more resources for mission work.

FIRST-PERSON: A letter from IMB President Paul Chitwood

Dear Church Family, It’s been a difficult year and, we’d all agree, it still is. That’s as true for our Southern Baptist overseas missionaries as it is for the rest of us.

FIRST-PERSON: How Southern Baptists can reach a $175 million LMCO goal

The 2020 Lottie Moon Christmas Offering goal is $175 million. That number is significant because 2020 marks the 175th anniversary of Southern Baptists sending workers to the nations.
