On Friday, Jeremy Everett explained how Texas Baptists, working in concert with other believers, are seeking to end hunger in Texas by 2015. This morning, Texas Baptist Christian Life Commision Director Suzii Paynter explains why this is a God-given call.
She could have pointed to Matthew 25 in which Christ explains that as we do “unto the least of these,” we have done to Him. Instead, she chose Jesus’ healing of the blind man in Mark 8. She describes today as being like Christ’s second touch of healing upon the man. Texas Baptists are clearly seeing the need to respond to the vast number of hungry people across the state and responding as God is calling them to do.
So as churches and individuals respond to the opportunity to share the hope of Christ throughout this state, will you join them? Will you serve alongside them?
