Countryside Bible Church, Southlake, TX

Nothing is more foundational to the health of our own Christian life than prayer. Unfortunately, it is one of the most neglected Christian disciplines in the church today. But the New Testament is clear: if we are not personally devoted to prayer, it is sin (Rom. 12:12; Col. 4:2). The key question that arises is, How can we grow in our understanding and practice of this discipline?

That’s why this year’s conference theme is Loving Christ by Praying for His Sheep.

During our time together, we will examine what Scripture teaches about prayer and why it is absolutely necessary for it to permeate our own lives, our families’ lives, and the local churches in which we serve.

We considered the biblical foundation of expository preaching, the practical process of exegesis, the construction of an expository sermon, and the five keys to crossing the contextual bridge.

In 1 Corinthians 4, the apostle Paul reminds us that God will not measure our ministries by their results—whether outward success or failure. We contribute nothing to the spiritual results of our efforts. Only God can give life to dead hearts through the gospel—regeneration (Jas. 1:18). And only His Spirit can transform the hearts of His people through His Word—sanctification (John 17:17; 2 Cor. 3:18). All that God requires of us is to be faithful stewards.

Faithful Stewards is presented by The Word Unleashed, a ministry of Countryside Bible Church.
