Overcoming When You’re Overwhelmed in Ministry

Written by Jamie Simmons We’re in an exciting new era! “Exciting?” you may ask. Absolutely! As God’s chosen people who are to proclaim His Word until He comes, we must be not only willing to follow Him in obedience wherever He may lead, but to do it with joy! Jesus, “for the joy that was set before Him endured the cross” (Hebrews 12:2). This is the Christian’s example to follow in our current circumstances.

FROM THE VAULT: The Meaning of Easter

Compiled from a newsletter written by Scott Brinson  Opening written by CBM Intern Jaelynn Woullard   Looking through different files about CBM history, I stumbled upon this story from one of the newsletters by Scott Brinson, the director of CBM of the Great Southwest. As I read about a woman who loved the Lord and wanted to share with others what Easter is all about, it reminded me that God calls us to tell others about Him and what He has done for us. We always remember the true meaning of Easter, as Christians, but I think we often forget that there ...
