Mark is a Boy Scout leader. One summer
he took his troop out west on an extended camping
trip. When they reached the grand Canyon the
group spent several hours scanning the sights from
the rim.
As if on cue, the entire group voiced their
desire to move on. Mark was confused and
frustrated. He thought this would be the highlight
of their trip. The plan was to spend several days
there. So he drove on pondering the boys’ mild
reaction.
Then they came to Zion Canyon. But this
time Mark drove to the bottom of the canyon. He
was surprised by their reaction. They begged to
stop and get out and explore. They pleaded with
him to let them camp there for several days.
What made the difference between the
Grand Canyon and Zion Canyon?
Position.
Position makes all the difference in the world. At
the Grand Canyon they were looking down. At
Zion Canyon they were looking up.
That’s how it is with worship. Man is a
created being. He is designed to look up to his
creator. When he only looks down, he gets the idea
that he is at the highest point. Worship happens
when we begin to look up to the face of God with
adoration and praise. When we have the proper
perspective we are free to worship Him as we
should.
Remember—the shepherd loves the sheep
and I do too!
Worshipping Him,
Steve
The North Carolina Missions Offering helps spread the
gospel through a variety of ministries. Numerous lives have
been touched and many individuals have come to know
Christ through your faithful prayers and financial support of
this offering.
 Pray for NC Baptist Men/Baptist on Mission volunteers
who provide vital care to the suffering.
 Pray for physical and spiritual needs of patients served
through the medical/dental/health screening bus
ministries
 Pray for church planting efforts across N.C.
 Pray for the mission camps in Red Springs and Shelby
and outreach in those areas.
 Pray for the work of local Baptist associations
throughout the state.
 Pray that more people would be mobilized for ministry
in our state, nation and world.
When you give, you treat the sick, feed the hungry, restore
lives, deliver hope and share the gospel.
Will you give to prepare the way for Jesus?

As the culture changes, it is no
longer possible for Christians to
pretend that we are a moral
majority. That may be bad news
for America, but it can be good
news for the church. Nominal
Christianity isn’t working
anymore. What’s needed now is
neither a doubling-down on the
status quo nor a retreat into
isolation. Instead we need a
church that speaks to social and
political issues with a bigger
vision in mind; that of the gospel
of Jesus Christ. As Christianity
seems increasingly strange—and
even subversive- to our culture, it’s time to embrace the
distinctiveness of the Christian faith and to be marginalized
for the sake of the gospel. Join us for this six-session Bible
study.
