Today is Make a Difference Day 2012 at the Shiloh Metropolitan Baptist Church.
MADD12 is a special day of “servant evangelism,” in which we blitz our community and city with good works that demonstrate the love of Chirst in practical ways.
Here are some of the projects we will be participating in:
Ride With Me for Autism
Hubbard House Domestic Walk
Duval County Public Schools Multiple Pathways Project
City Rescue Missions
IM Sulzbacher Center
Hope Totes for the homeless
Free car wash
Cleaning up trash in several neigbhorhoods
Passing our gospel tracts and fliers
We believe the church is called to proclaim the true about Jesus Christ and demonstrate the love of Jesus Christ.
Of course, this should take beyond special days. But we are excited to concentrate our efforts today to let our lights shine to the glory of God the Father (Matt. 5:16).
Thanks, Shiloh, for joinin in on this adventure of faith.
I praise God for all of our volunteers. You make it happen!
May many people be helped, encouraged, and pointed to Christ today. And may the Lord receive all the glory!
The Most Important Commandment
And one of the scribes came up and heard them disputing with one another, and seeing that he answered them well, asked him, “Which commandment is the most important of all?” Jesus answered, “The most important is, ‘Hear, O Israel: The Lord our God, the Lord is one. And you shall love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind and with all your strength.’ The second is this:‘You shall love your neighbor as yourself.’ There is no other commandment greater than these.” And the scribe said to him, “You are right, Teacher. You have truly said that he is one, and there is no other besides him. And to love him with all the heart and with all the understanding and with all the strength, and to love one’s neighbor as oneself, is much more than all whole burnt offerings and sacrifices.” And when Jesus saw that he answered wisely, he said to him, “You are not far from the kingdom of God.” And after that no one dared to ask him any more questions. – Mark 12:28-34 Armies win…
