2014 SBC ANNUAL MEETING
Monday’s first session of the Southern Baptist Convention Pastors’ Conference in Baltimore included worship led by Matt Redman and messages delivered by Johnny Hunt, Clayton King and Eric Mason.
The messages continued to play off the conference’s theme of “Show us Your Glory.”
Hunt spoke about “The Glory of Making Him Known,” from Psalm 126; King talked about “God’s Glory in Giving Up,” using 1 Kings 19 as his main text; and Mason talked about “Glorifying God through a Godly resolve,” based on Ephesians 5.
Hunt made the following five points: The writer begins with a remarkable event, followed by rejoicing expressions, a recognized experience, a redeemed expression and a refreshing retreat.
King talked to pastors and others in attendance about ways to avoid burnout in their ministries. He encouraged those in attendance to schedule times to get away, get alone with God, get honest with God, get rested and fed, get up and get back to work.
“If we are not careful we will quit,” King said. “So let’s give up to Jesus before we get to that point.”
Mason concluded the morning session with a three-point message about resolve. Pastors must resolve to live a life of spiritual discernment, resolve that they will maximize every “season” the Lord gives them and resolve that the Lord will be the strongest influence in their lives.
The Pastors’ Conference continues Monday with afternoon and evening sessions, and the SBC annual meeting is scheduled to start Tuesday morning.
