Timmy Brister has posted 10 Thoughts about the SBC. Because I strongly identify with his #10 I thought I would share it:
10. I believe the best Southern Baptists are those who don’t spend their time and energy talking about the SBC but focus their life on Jesus Christ. The SBC is not the hope of the world. Jesus is. The SBC may not be around 100 years from now, but the kingdom of God is eternal. Those who spend their lives in the politics, debates, and other peripheral issues may gain attention in the blogosphere and domain of bureaucratic conference rooms, but the future of the SBC does not belong to those wearing pajamas our suits. Rather, it belongs to those with a towel and basin, following Jesus on mission–serving, loving, and giving their lives away. I want to be found in that number because I love Jesus, because I believe in the local church, and because I am grateful to be called a Southern Baptist.
