Dear Friends,

In this, and subsequent posts, I will be sharing the Tennessee State Convention Program.  I am thrilled about all that will be going on July 5-7, 2013 at the Murfreesboro Hotel and Convention Center, and I know that you will want to join us and be a part of a great event.

The theme of our convention is found in Hosea 10:12, “Sow to yourselves in righteousness, reap in mercy; break up your fallow ground:  for it is time to seek the Lord, till he come and rain righteousness upon you.”

There is a real need of a REVIVAL of righteousness among God’s people.  Not our own righteousness, but that born of a Holy Ghost revival among us.  The church is being caught up in the same sins as the world and there MUST be a difference.  God’s people are called out to be salt and light to our generation, and unless we begin to sow the right things, destruction is eminent.

I often wonder if there are some local churches that God has removed His candlestick and we are fighting futile battle.  Unless the unused and unproductive ground is broken up and we begin to seek the Lord…disaster is the only result.  It is TIME to SEEK THE LORD!
