1 John 3:1-3

Do you remember the moment your child took his or her first step? Your world hung in suspense as you called to her and she moved in your direction. So too, our Father God calls his children to take spiritual “next steps.” And what will happen? What if we fall? Better yet, what if we fail? Will God show his disapproval? No! Our God is our loving Father. He is cheering us on! He delights even in our attempts to take spiritual steps!

What spiritual “next step” do you need to take personally? What step would you take if you knew God would delight in your attempt? Take it! How are you joining First Baptist Lewisville as we take spiritual “next steps” to be who God has called us to be as a church?

In the coming months and years, we are taking spiritual “next steps” that are crucial to who we become as a church. Pray for God’s direction in these steps, for encouragement when we fall, and concerning what your role in our next steps might be.
