Men of His Word - Oshkosh
Saturday, February 24, 2018
Registration and continental breakfast begin at 7:15am.
The conference begins at 8:00am.
In Matthew 4 Jesus called his first disciples to get out of the boat. They obeyed leaving behind all they knew not really knowing where it would lead them. In Matthew 14 Jesus again calls Peter to get out of the boat. This time it wasn't just wading to the shore but during a perilous storm. Peter put his faith in the One calling, and Jesus took him by the hand and protected him through the storm.
Each of us is called to be his disciple and to follow with that same kind of trust. Our Lord challenges us to get out of our proverbial boats—to leave the safety of our comfortable lives, to keep our eyes off the distractions and disruptions of the world and instead with focus and purpose walk to Jesus. He promises to be right there with us in the midst of the storms to guide us, protect us and hold us close. Join us as we are challenged and encouraged to take that step and trust God to show us his awesome power in our lives.
