AUTHOR: NAD Stewardship

Today we are reminded of the date: October 22, 1844. This is a key prophetic date in the history of God’s Kingdom. One-hundred Sixty-seven years ago events were put in place that would lead to the founding of the Seventh-day Adventist Church. We are stewards of our Church and its message to the World.

The Church, through the blessing of the Holy Spirit, is the dispensary of God’s message for these last days. While the Church is not perfect, it is the organizational means by which the gospel of truth is to be proclaimed around the Earth. Paul prayed for the Church at Thessalonica (1 Ths. 3:11-13 NASB95) saying:

“Now may our God and Father Himself and Jesus our Lord direct our way to you; and may the Lord cause you to increase and abound in love for one another, and for all people, just as we also do for you; so that He may establish your hearts without blame in holiness before our God and Father at the coming of our Lord Jesus with all His saints.”

Appeal: Our Conference is a part of God’s structure to take His message to our area. The offering today supports vital ministries of our Conference. Let’s pray.

Prayer: Lord, thank you for this church and the message You have given to us. Bless this offering, that it might win many to Your kingdom. In Jesus’ name. Amen.
