Sermons by Mike Baskett (Page 15)

Mike was born in Abilene, Texas in 1962 to parents who were serving in the U.S. Air Force. After living in Montana and Florida, his dad retired and moved back to Abilene in 1972. It was in Abilene that their entire family was introduced to the saving grace of our Lord Jesus and all began a new walk with Him! Mike was called into ministry his sophomore year at ACU and answered the call his junior year (he was a bit slow). While working on his degree in Ministry and Evangelism, Mike ministered at two local churches. He also spent a year as a missionary intern in Skelmersdale, England. Karen and Mike have served three congregations in our 21 years together, each one has been a unique and special blessing! They have three incredible children, Hunter (20), Colby (18), and Curry (13). They have a dog named Granger, two cats, and a gold fish. Mike consider myself one of the most blessed individuals in this world! But he will tell you… “I’m REALLY looking forward to the world to come. What a hope we have in Jesus!”

To truly understand and capture the “power” of time, Christians must take “time” to be thankful. Taking that time – seeing your life from a positive perspective, without comparison – is a critical part of your happiness.

Takin’ Care of Business

In Acts 6, the early church needed someone to take on the responsibility of feeding a group of widows that were being overlooked. The apostles did not assume that responsibility since they needed to give their attention “to prayer and the ministry of the word.” So, the apostles appointed seven men to serve (diakanos).
