Leaders gather for Texas Hope 2010


On Friday, a group of legendary Texas Baptists gathered to learn more about and share insight into Texas Hope 2010, a BGCT initiative to share the gospel with every non-Christian in the state by Easter 2010. Among the dignitaries were Russell Dilday, Paul Powell, Roy Edgemon, Richard Jackson, Joy Fenner and Jeanne Law.

Several of the people who attended the meeting expressed great excitement about Texas Hope 2010 and volunteered to help however they could. They referenced the impact previous evangelistic emphases had. They hoped to see God’s spirit move.

But as Reading Rainbow taught me, you don’t have to take my word for it. Ken Coffee gives his take on the meeting over on his blog here.

    I consider you a dignitary.

  2. John Says:

    All right, you got me that time. I couldn’t help but laugh out loud.

  3. David Says:

    “So, what do you think? With God on our side like this, how can we lose? If God didn’t hesitate to put everything on the line for us, embracing our condition and exposing himself to the worst by sending his own Son, is there anything else he wouldn’t gladly and freely do for us? And who would dare tangle with God by messing with one of God’s chosen? Who would dare even to point a finger? The One who died for us—who was raised to life for us!—is in the presence of God at this very moment sticking up for us. Do you think anyone is going to be able to drive a wedge between us and Christ’s love for us? There is no way! Not trouble, not hard times, not hatred, not hunger, not homelessness, not bullying threats, not backstabbing, not even the worst sins listed in Scripture:

    They kill us in cold blood because they hate you.
    We’re sitting ducks; they pick us off one by one.

    “None of this fazes us because Jesus loves us. I’m absolutely convinced that nothing—nothing living or dead, angelic or demonic, today or tomorrow, high or low, thinkable or unthinkable—absolutely nothing can get between us and God’s love because of the way that Jesus our Master has embraced us (Romans 8, The Message).

    It’s great to be a dignitary–THAT kind of dignitary!
