~Sharing Jesus, Touching Lives~
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. God can use everyone in his mission.
These words tell us four important things:
- God is our creator, and we are made new through Jesus Christ.
- He is at work and invites us to join Him.
- He has already planned the work for us.
- He wants us to be obedient and do what He has planned for us.
God uses some of us to plant the seed. Others he uses to water. In the end the harvest comes from God. Paul describes us as “Laborers together with God.”
Who is Mary Davis Hill?
Mary was president of WMU from 1906 until 1931. Her heart for missions and people was evident in everything she did. Not only did she stir women to give and pray for missions (giving to the cooperative program rose over 1000% during her tenure as president), but to take care of retired pastors (at that time, pastors did not have retirements savings, and many lived in poverty), taking care of orphans, and also giving money to schools all over Texas, as well as China.
She believed Texas was a vast mission field, and that immigrants needed to know Jesus just as much as citizens. Each year, she spurred women to service, giving and prayer, leading to the establishment of State Missions Week in September, 1910. Remembering her remarkable leadership, in 1935 the offering for state missions was named the Mary Hill Davis Offering®. Almost 100 years later, her example still inspires Texas Baptists to GIVE, to PRAY, and to GO.
12 Week Women's Bible Study
Daniel: Lives of Integrity, Words of Prophecy - Member Book by Beth Moore provides a personal study experience five days a week plus viewer guides for the group video sessions of this in-depth women's Bible study. Join Beth in a faith-building study of prophecy and learn how to live with integrity in today's self-absorbed society. The prophet Daniel faced unbelievable pressures to compromise his faith, to live in a hostile culture, and to confront temptations and threats. Today, believers in Jesus Christ face many of the same trials.
This Old Testament Bible study falls in two parts. The first portion, from Daniel chapters 1 - 6, deals with Daniel's life as he faced the kind of pressures and temptations Christians encounter today. Daniel models how to develop enduring integrity in an enticing world. The second portion, chapters 7 - 12, explores thrilling prophecies from the time of Daniel through the second coming of Jesus Christ.
