Thanksgiving Conference Recap [Wednesday Morning]

Missionaries Sheridan Stanton (Peru) & John Mark Hatcher (France) opened up the final session of our 58th Annual Thanksgiving Conference this morning by singing “I Love to Tell the Story.”

Bro. Michael Jackman from Twelve-Ryan Baptist Church in Warren, Michigan delivered the first message from Mark 4:35-41.

There were multitudes following Jesus. When He crossed the sea, they were faithful and followed. Why does Jesus give them a task they cannot do?

He expects obedience. [Micah 6:6-8]

Why do storms arise? So we will seek Him. He alone calms the storms. [James 1:2-4]

Parable of the Mustard Seed [Mark 4:30]
The first thing the seed has to do is die. Then it must be completely dependent on the Lord. [Philippians 1:6; 1 Corinthians 1:27]

Bro. John Mark Hatcher, missionary to France, preached the final message of the conference from Matthew 13:36-43.

vs. 24- They sowed good seed.
vs. 36- The disciples asked about it, defining it in terms of the parable of the weeds.

We must penetrate the soil where God has placed us. How do we penetrate the soil?

The best way to penetrate soil is by serving them–by doing good. [Acts 9:36-39; 10:37; Matthew 5:16]

The best broadcasting stations don’t work unless there are good receivers tuned to the same frequency.

Do good because it is commanded. [Matthew 5:44-45; 1 Peter 3:13-17] What makes you tick?

When you win them with your behavior, they will listen to your words.

To reach people:
1. Involve everyone [Titus 2:9-11]
2. Observe [Ephesians 5:15]
3. Act.
4. Don’t be weary in well doing.
