2015 Mary Hill Davis Offering® and Week of Prayer for Texas Missions®
Missions leader, Thank you for leading your church to give to the offering that sends and supports your missionaries – whether your church calls it Mary Hill Davis Offering® or something else. Every Texas Baptist has a role to play in sharing the gospel of Jesus Christ in our state. It doesn’t matter your age, sex, ethnicity, or if you live in one of our huge cities or small rural towns. The theme of the 2015 Mary Hill Davis Offering® and Week of Prayer for Texas Missions® is Thirst. Physical thirst is the craving for water. Spiritual thirst can be described very simply as the craving for God. We all have cravings. We crave safety. We crave acceptance. We crave belonging. We crave significance. We crave love. Sometimes we crave forbidden pleasures. Often we crave things. Just as our bodies crave and thirst, so do our souls. We would not think of depriving our bodies of water, so why would we deprive our souls of Jesus? During the Week of Prayer for Texas Missions®, invite members of your congregation to reflect on their personal relationships with Christ. Challenge Christians to be thirsty for God’s Word and His presence. Then when their thirst has been quenched with the Spirit of the Lord, ask them to turn their eyes to neighbors who need the Living Water only God can provide.
