A new resource for helping believers make a difference in today’s culture is now available from Alabama Citizens Action Program (ALCAP).
Jesus instructs His followers to be both “salt and light” in the world (Matt. 5:13–16), and ALCAP’s executive director Joe Godfrey calls this the “Great Calling” for believers.
To think through how to fulfill this calling and become “salt and light,” Godfrey developed a downloadable video study series called The Forgotten Command.
The series works well as a six-week study or in a one-time retreat setting. The videos are 20 to 30 minutes in length and come with discussion questions and personal application suggestions.
We desperately need to be reminded of the biblical principles Joe shares in The Forgotten Command, and his timing couldn’t be better as we head into the final two months of the current election season.
Work begins with us
The series reminds believers that we truly can influence culture for the better — but the work begins first within our own hearts.
Spouting ugliness and anger out of fear and frustration will only help destroy that which we think we are protecting.
Working through what is outlined in The Forgotten Command series will provide the vital centering we all need right about now.
Danny Wood, pastor of Shades Mountain Baptist Church, Vestavia Hills, also recommends the series.
“The Forgotten Command is an excellent resource for any church or individual that wants to better understand Jesus’ command to be salt and light,” Wood said.
“In typical Joe Godfrey style, the content is biblical, historical and relevant to today’s environment. The length of each video session and the depth of the accompanying discussion guides make it an ideal curriculum for any Bible study group.”
