I have been pastor of Maineville Baptist Church for about three weeks now. Right now we are preparing for our September 11th Re-launch service. We have been starting several new ministries the last few weeks. So, in fact, we already having new beginnings at our church already.
I am glad that our God is a God of “New Beginnings.” Here at Maineville Baptist Church in Maineville, OH – we know that our great need in our personal lives and in the church as a whole is a constant renewal. Romans 12:1-2 are what I call my life verse(s), the Bible says “I beseech you therefore, brethren, by the mercies of God, that ye present your bodies a living sacrifice, holy, acceptable unto God, which is your reasonable service. 2 And be not conformed to this world: but be ye transformed by the renewing of your mind, that ye may prove what is that good, and acceptable, and perfect, will of God.” We do need new beginnings and we do need renewal. In Jesus Christ is the only place where that renewal can be found.
It starts at salvation and continues as we draw closer and closer to the Lord. We cannot skip spending time with God and expect to have that renewal. God has made man very resilient but his resilience it short-lived especially spiritually. It is a must that believers spend quality time with the Lord and renew themselves in His grace each day. We at Maineville Baptist Church need a daily renewal.
Yes, there are “New Beginnings” to be had even on a daily basis for every Christian. Not only is it to be had it is really a necessity. A daily renewal of our mind; a confession of sin; a cleansing from reading and studying the Bible. We can have new beginnings in our life. Come visit us at Maineville Baptist Church where we can help you know God and have the renewal that you are looking for.
