SBC Executive Committee President and CEO Ronnie Floyd highlighted a group of Southern Baptist leaders speaking at the Advance Bible Conference last week at Hyland Heights Baptist Church in Rustburg, VA.
Floyd spoke on the final day of the three day conference (Jan. 24-27), with a message entitled “What time is it in the state of Virginia?”
Referencing two Scriptures in Romans 13:11 and 1 Chronicles 12:32, Floyd explained the word used for time in those passages is “Kairos,” and refers to a crucial place or decisive moment. Floyd said the global pandemic is such a moment for the Church today.
“We can think of 1,000 reasons why we don’t like a global pandemic, but God is working on people now like never before,” Floyd said. “We can’t wait for things to get better. This is an all hands on-deck situation. You can’t sit this one out. The church must answer this moment in history.”
