Jasper Barnett and Campton Smalling shared the pulpit this Sunday, delivering words of encouragement as we enter a new year. First Brother Jasper, took us to John 16 in a meditation that fixed our eyes on Christ as the example and key motivator for godliness. Then Brother Campton, visiting from Jamaica, shared some thoughts from Exodus 8–12 concerning the people of Israel's preparation to move forward out of Egypt toward the Promised Land. May we seek to begin this year with a sense of purpose and vision as we await our coming Lord.
Scripture passages: John 16:25–31; Ex. 8–12
