Last night Carr Lane Baptist Church hosted the monthly Worker’s Conference of the Barry County Southern Baptist Association; made up of about 33 churches across the county, and two or three outside the county – including Carr Lane which is in the Southwest corner of Stone County.
We were honored to welcome the people of the churches of Barry County, the Association, our Director of Missions Randy Comer, his wife Sheena, and the guest speaker Jay Scribner. Jay is the former pastor of First Baptist Church of Branson, and if I remember correctly a past President of the Missouri Baptist Convention.
We were blessed by the message Brother Scribner proclaimed. The message was from 1 Peter 1:13-17, and titled “Be Holy”. A very needed message for Christians of the twenty first century. There is a very urgent need for holiness and holy living in Christian living.
Holiness should set us apart from the lives of those who do not proclaim to be Christian. We are followers of Christ. We are “Christian” and that means ‘Like Christ”, and that portrays “Holiness”.
It was an honor to host such a fine group of Baptist Christians; and a blessing to hear the Word of God proclaimed. Thank you Dr. Scribner.
