Max and Debbie Harmon: Missionaries to Peru {Col. 4:2-6}

Since 1982, the Harmons have been in the missionary field of Peru. Their sending church is Fellowship Baptist Church of Perryton, TX; however, Friendship Baptist Church has offered support since its foundation.

Special thanks to Max Harmon for his presentation to our class this morning!

Theirs is a work of faith in the field; our faith promise is a work of faith on our part.  Rom. 14:22-23

He became a Pastor at the ripe old age of 23 in Illinois (1978-1982); our Pastor Slayden came to be their song leader and his Mom was treasurer for the church, and Miss Carla can play the piano beautifully!  I Tim. 4:12

We all have to be led by the Spirit to our own "missions".  Luke 4:1

"Project Peru" has been very successful in assisting struggling churches financially.  (More will be discussed at evening service.)

Grace and Truth

Special thanks to Dan Jeffers of Park Street Baptist Church in St. Petersburg, FL, for being our guest teacher this morning!

What is grace and how does it apply to me?
Grace is favor, kindness, and graciousness.

As an example of one receiving grace, Noah was just, perfect in generations, and walked with God. Heb. 11:7

There is merited favor and grace (assuming there is already a relationship with God). Ps. 84:11 ; Prov. 3:4 ; James 4:6-8 ; II Cor. 9:8

Grace as defined as "unmerited favor" is received upon Salvation. Eph. 2:4-10 {v.8: "...and that not of yourselves..."}

Grace should be the motivation for everything we do.  A list of laws will not please God without the relationship first. Rom. 5:1-2, 6-10, 12-17, 19-21

Truth: is it absolute or relative?  John 1:1-4, 14
Grace allows us to present truth in a gracious way. Truth without grace is often rejected.

Spiritual Living in a Secular Society

We are surrounded by a cloud of witnesses.  Heb. 12:1-10

There are many challenges and conflicts in the world: war, generational, racial, religious

Daniel was distinctively different in his society.  Dan. 1:1-7
