Fred O. Pitts
Fred O. Pitts became the Pastor of Ancient City Baptist Church in July 2017. Although life in the 21st century is complex, he believes the purpose of life can be summed up more simply in the answers Jesus gave when asked the greatest of the commandments: “‘Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind and with all your strength.’ The second is this: ‘Love your neighbor as yourself.’” Pastor Fred says, “The primary call in my life is seeking first the kingdom of God through pastoring and teaching. My passion is teaching God’s word in a manner that is both understandable and relevant. Primary emphases in my ministry are compassion and encouragement.”
Today is Day 36—and our last Sunday—in our 40 Days of Serving. Our hope is that each of us might “use whatever gift he has received to serve others, faithfully administering God’s grace in its various forms” (1 Peter 4.10), for “we are God’s workmanship, created in Christ Jesus to do good works, which God prepared in advance for us to do” (Ephesians 2.10).
Today, let’s recall how Jesus has served us—and how we might serve him, too. Use the space below to write down how God might be speaking to you... [This messsage includes Communion in the middle, so you may want to fast forward during that time...]
