What a Privilege to Pray for One Another
May 12, 2021

What a Privilege to Pray for One Another

How often does someone approach us and ask us to pray for them? For many, it could be every day or several times a day. Have you ever thought about the responsibility and privilege that request carries? Honestly, I don’t always.   

God’s word actually commands us to pray for one another. (Galatians 6:2 “Carry each other’s burdens, and in this way you will fulfill the law of Christ.”)

Praying for one another strengthens our relationships with them and with the Lord.

We can pray for each other for a number of reasons: salvation, safety and healing just to name a few. God uses our prayers to line up our hearts to His will. We also have the assurance that God hears our prayers. (1 John 5:14 “This is the confidence we have in approaching God: that if we ask anything according to His will, he hears us.”) When we pray for one another it benefits us as well. We begin to experience the peace of God. (Philippians 4:6-7 “Do not be anxious about anything, but in every situation, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God. And the peace of God, which transcends all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus.”)

We will grow spiritually and learn to trust God more and more. (Romans 12:12 “Be joyful in hope, patient in affliction, and faithful in prayer.”) We pray for people because we love them and want them to come to know God more deeply. As you encounter people in need of prayer, remember that praying for one another benefits both parties but most of all it honors Christ through obedience..

I have been serving in the personal ministries area for over 2 years, and we have people call in and ask for prayer. It is an honor to pray with them. I would like to encourage you to pray for the people we serve as well. So many of you donate food items each week, and we greatly appreciate it. Let’s take it a step further. When you are shopping for your items, pray for the families that will receive them. Pray for the single mom and her children who receive that cake mix or canned vegetables. Pray for that young man who receives the peanut butter or cereal. Pray that they will somehow see Jesus and their need for Him. Pray as you leave your items that the gospel of Christ is being proclaimed through this ministry.  Pray for the ones volunteering that the love of Christ will shine through them. We may never know the impact our prayers have on others. In reality it could be eternal.

Have a great week!

Only a Holy God
Apr 29, 2021
I love to hear the church sing. It is one of the most joyful and fulfilling experiences of my life. As I stand before you each week and hear and watch you sing my soul is stirred and encouraged as we together declare the greatness of God. We do that through songs that have been passed down for generations and songs that are being inspired by the Holy Spirit and written in our generation. In the coming weeks I will introduce to you a new song, Only a Holy God from the group CityAlight.
 
Take some time to meditate on the lyrics. You will see that “only a holy God” can do what He does. Check out the links at the bottom to hear the song and for deeper study into the lyrics.
 
Only a Holy God
 
Lyrics
Who else commands all the hosts of heaven
Who else could make every king bow down
Who else can whisper and darkness trembles
Only a Holy God
 
What other beauty demands such praises
What other splendor outshines the sun
What other majesty rules with justice
Only a Holy God
 
Come and behold Him
The One and the Only
Cry out, sing holy
Forever a Holy God
Come and worship the Holy God
 
What other glory consumes like fire
What other power can raise the dead
What other name remains undefeated
Only a Holy God
 
Who else could rescue me from my failing
Who else would offer His only Son
Who else invites me to call Him Father
Only a Holy God
Only my Holy God!

Hess's Headlines April 2021
Apr 21, 2021
“Therefore, confess your sins to one another and pray for one another, so that you may be healed. The prayer of a righteous person is very powerful
in its effect. Elijah was a human being as we are, and he prayed earnestly that it would not rain, and for three years and six months it did not rain on the land. 
Then he prayed again, and the sky gave rain and the land produced its fruit.”
James 5:16-18
 
Dear Church,
 
Sometimes when I read the Bible, I find myself putting the people on pedestals. In fact, I can do that to the point that I find them unrelatable. I do not know what it is like to call down fire from heaven like Elijah. I do not know what it is like to see someone who is dead, take breaths of life again like Elisha witnessed. I do not know what it is like to see a young man who never walked suddenly leap to his feet and begin to jump around like Peter witnessed as he went to the Temple. I do not know what it is like to hear the Lord’s voice in a burning bush like Moses. I do not know what it’s like to experience the Lord battle against the enemy with hailstones and extend the daylight like Joshua. So, in these areas, I find them unrelatable.
 
Then I read the book of James and he reminds his readers, “Elijah was a human being as we are, and he prayed earnestly.” Suddenly, we relate. Maybe I relate more than I thought. I may not have called down fire from Heaven, but I have seen the power of God called down and intervene in marriages, in health situations, and watched the Lord transform someone’s battle with depression and anxiety. While I have not raised someone from the dead like Elisha, I have seen someone raised spiritually from death to life in Jesus Christ (Eph. 2). While I do not know what it is to see someone able to walk miraculously; I have seen some folks walk miraculously through the fire of trials, hardship, and difficulty, rejoicing in the presence of Christ. While the Lord has not spoken to me from the burning bush, He has called me to preach the Word and serve the church. While He has not extended days supernaturally in my life or rained down hail on my enemies, I have watched Him fight battles ahead of me, answer prayer, and quiet storms as they raged in personal matters.
 
Church, prayer changes things. While it is amazing to relate to the great heroes of faith. The fact that the Lord relates to us in Christ Jesus, that he speaks to us through His word and in prayer, and that He sympathizes with us in our temptations, this is grace. Let’s continue to pray. Let’s continue to see God work. Let’s continue to cry out to Him in desperation, remembering that Elijah was just a human being like us. God is working at Woodmont Baptist Church – Let’s keep praying!!!!
 
In Christ

Contentment
Apr 14, 2021
I know what it is to be in need, and I know what it is to have plenty. I have learned the secret of being content in any and every situation, whether well fed or hungry, whether living in plenty or in want. I can do everything through him who gives me strength.
Philippians 4:12 – 13, NIV
 
Contentment. I used to consider it a pessimistic term. Give me joy, excitement, and ecstatic any day over simple “contentment;” it has always seemed so neutral. Paul on the other hand saw the beauty in it. As a believer we’ll have wants, desires, and wishes just as anyone else in the flesh does. The attractive thing about being transformed by the Gospel is that abundant life means you know you are not in need of those things. It means you have a shalom type of peace in the middle of circumstantial chaos. It means you have grace. It means you have the propensity for love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, faithfulness, goodness, gentleness, and self-control. You are content in all.
 
To be transformed by the Gospel means that decisions are made that revere Christ as Lord of your life. This in fact is quite contrary to the rest of the world. It looks like consistently turning to the Word of God for direction, guided by the Holy Spirit, and finding that obedience actually produces joy.
 
As I think of you, my church family, today I am praying that you would find the true gift in contentedness. I pray that you’d be able to take whatever circumstance the Lord has providentially given you right now and see that you are able to do all things because it is Christ who gives you strength. Even if “all things” means going without a want, desire, or wish. Even if it means hope deferred. Even if it means worldly chaos.
 
I pray as well that because we are marked by contentedness and abundant life that the Gospel, as offensive as it is, would be attractive to those who know us and see how we walk through trials. Content. Loved. Transformed.
 
As a quick reminder, this Sunday is John 3:16 day, the Gospel will very specifically be shared with all. Who are you inviting as your guest? No really. . . I’d love for you to tell me! (  or 256-412-4240)
 
Joyfully,

Born Again
Apr 07, 2021

John 3:3 “Truly I tell you, unless someone is born again, he cannot see the kingdom of God.”

As I was reading this week I read something that struck me, and I have not been able to get it off my mind because this is so true and I don’t think we even realize we do it. In Discovering the Mission of God, the author says, “Much contemporary American preaching targets the shallowest level—behavior. It assumes that changing behavior will produce lasting change. The Lord Jesus never taught or acted that way, however. He believed that the heart (the seat of basic assumptions and allegiances, the worldview) was the fount of life and the seat of all true change, thus his insistence to Nicodemus on the “new birth”. He knew that all lasting change begins at the core and radiates outward, affecting behavior.”

We seem to have this backwards in churches today! We focus on behavior modification and make sure we teach our kids how to “behave” instead of teaching them how to be born again. We pray that they “act good” in public instead of praying that the Holy Spirit convicts them of their sins and saves them. We praise them for being “good” instead of sharing the reality that our righteous acts are as filthy rags (Isaiah 64:6) and that nothing good dwells in us (Romans 7:18). Our children, the people in our community, the ones in our churches need to hear us teach the good news of salvation not behavior modification! The good news of salvation is this:

Sin entered this world through man and every day we prove we are sinners because we choose to sin (Genesis 3; Rom. 3:23)
Because of our sin we deserve death and an eternity in hell. (Rom. 6:23)
Christ loved us so much that while we were still enemies, He died for us. (Rom. 5:8)
The Bible tells us it is by grace through faith that we are saved (Eph. 2:8-9)
All we have to do to be saved is confess Jesus as Lord (repent of your sins and surrender your life to Him to do what He pleases with you) and believe in your heart that God raised Jesus from the dead (believe Jesus is who the scripture says He is and that His blood shed on the cross is all we need for forgiveness of our sins) and the Bible says we WILL BE SAVED! (Rom. 10:9-10)

Lasting change only happens when God opens our eyes to our sin, and we see our desperate need for Him! When we begin a relationship with Christ and give Him control of our lives, then and only then, will we see true change in our lives! The Bible says when we are saved that we are new creations and everything about us will begin to change. If you care about somebody share the greatest news ever with them!

“For I passed on to you as most important what I also received: that Christ died for our sins according to the Scriptures, that He was buried, that He raised again on the third day according to the Scriptures” 1 Corinthians 15:3-4
