A Church in Transformation

main image

The Lord is leading us at Wilmer to be transformed from being a good church to being a great church. The Holy Spirit is reminding us through God’s Word that we have a great God who has saved us for a great work. We as God’s children are under a great commandment to love our God with all of our heart, soul and mind, and to love our neighbor as ourselves.

The Holy Spirit is reminding us that we have received a great commission to go into the world and make disciples, to baptize them and to teach them the precious word of God that will transform their lives. We have a great challenge to be a New Testament church and we have the first church in Acts chapter 2 as our example.

It will take a great commitment on our part to meet the challenge God has given us. His challenge is to see the open door He will provide for us and go through it as we follow His will. The Lord has set before this church an open door. Our response must be like the church in Acts, who took seriously the challenge of the Great Commission. They grew as a church and brought glory to God.

We can only be great as we follow the Lord and work and serve together as the church in Acts 2 did. We are going to pray and trust in the power of the Holy Spirit to fill us and transform us into a great church, serving a great God and fulfilling a great commission. To God be the Glory.

Dr. Mark Foley Shares "The Light in the Star"

Our church was blessed to have Dr. Mark Foley come and share a message with us this past Sunday. Mark is currently President of the University of Mobile but will be retiring in July. His message to our congregation was inspiring and timely as we move toward being a disciple-making church.

Mark told us of his recent experience flying a World War II vintage fighter plane, and how he was taught to fly in formation with another plane. His flight instructor told him to come along side the plane just ahead of him and to align the light on his plane's wing with the star on the side of the plane just ahead of him. This way he would be in proper alignment and stay in formation with the lead aircraft.

This is a beautiful example of how we can be a follower of Christ. We must align our life with Him and let Him lead us. To do this we must keep our eyes on Christ, align our lives with the “star of heaven” and stay with Him.

“Because you have been my help, therefore in the shadow of your wings I will rejoice. My soul follows close behind you; your right hand upholds me.” Psalm 63:6-7
