Praise God “there has also come to be at the present time a remnant according to God’s gracious choice” (Rom 11:5). The “remnant” is those who have the testimony of the Lord Jesus Christ and who heed His commandments.
- I praise God for the remnant among the Capitol community, and the opportunities that God provides to establish those who desire to mature in their faith and in their knowledge of Scripture (Col 2:6-7), and to equip those called to spiritual leadership (Eph 4:11-12).
- Capitol Commission is ready always (throughout the year) to share the wisdom of God’s Word through personal meetings with government leaders, to provide encouragement for those who serve faithfully, to pray with those who serve in positions of authority (and their staff), to provide personal biblical counsel, and even to serve as a speechwriter for several of our leaders to help them share the testimony and commandments of God’s Word.
- We are delighted when you rejoice with us that God has His remnant throughout our Capitol communities, both locally and nationally. Pray for God to strengthen them to display honor, integrity, and righteousness in their lives and decisions.
As I was teaching Mark 12 this past Sunday, it was apparent from verse 34 that groups as a whole are never entirely bad. There are always individuals within those groups who are receptive to the gospel message and to God’s working in their lives. Jesus told one such person, “You are not far from the kingdom of God.”
- As I continue to meet with our state leaders—whether they are Democrat or Republican (and with the many staff members who work in the Capitol yearlong)—I rejoice in meeting those who are citizens of the kingdom of God.
- I also meet with those who are “not far from the kingdom of God,” and still others who do not love the truth of God’s Word (cf. 2 Thess 2:10).
Have you thought with regard to those who do not believe in the Lord Jesus Christ for salvation? Romans 10:14-15 read, “How then will they call on Him in whom they have not believed? How will they believe in Him whom they have not heard? And how will they hear without a preacher? How will they preach unless they are sent. . . ?”
- Believing “in Him” and calling “on Him” cannot occur unless there is “a preacher” who is “sent.”
- All prayers and donations to the ministry of Capitol Commission not only make it possible for us to establish and equip those who believe, but also to proclaim the gospel message to our Capitol community, as we are "sent."
Thank you to those of you who partner with us through your prayers and/or giving.
- If you are not praying for “those in authority,” do you know that God has commanded believers to do so (see 1 Tim 2:1-4)? If you are not already doing so, please contact me so I can help you or your local church to prayer for your local, state, and national leaders (in addition to their staff).
- Perhaps you are able to invest financially in this ministry—either as an individual, business, or local church—please pray whether God would lead you to do so. (Please indicate whether your gift is for Georgia, when you either mail your gift [P.O. Box 244, Rincon, GA 31326-0244] or donate online.)
Thank you to our current partners in ministry!! Thank you, new friends, for your prayerful consideration to join us in ministry to our Capitol communities. We could not serve without your prayers and investment in this ministry. Praise God for an exciting co-mission as we participate “in the gospel” with a “profit which increases to your account” (Phil 1:5; 4:17).
