The Guido Bible Institute in Metter welcomed Dr. Robert Smith for a recent weekend presentation: “Our Problems – God’s Solutions.” Smith is a professor of Christian Preaching at Beeson Divinity School in Birmingham, Ala.

Guido Bible Institute used the evangelism event to introduce and bring awareness about the divinity school. Though the late Dr. Michael Guido, Guido Gardens and “Seeds from the Sower” are famously-known all over the world, not many people are aware of the Christian education opportunities that abound at Guido Bible Institute, founded in 2010.

The mission of the Guido Bible Institute is stated as: “To educate and equip individuals with skills and knowledge to promote and proclaim the Gospel of the Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ.”

Three levels of education are available at the school: Certificate in Biblical Studies, Associate in Biblical Studies and Bachelor in Biblical Studies and Christian Ministry.

An ordained Baptist minister and award-winning author and editor, Dr. Smith delivered three stirring messages to those in attendance at the Friday and Saturday event. During Friday’s lunchtime message at RJ’s Restaurant referencing the story of Joshua in the Old Testament, Dr. Smith said, “God says, ‘Remember not to forget. I am the God who has brought you, sustained you and will carry you through.’

“God speaks and God declares, ‘I am the way – I will not just provide the way – I am the way. I am the truth and the life.’”

Continuing with his message of Joshua on Friday evening at the Hofstra Worship Center in Metter, Dr. Smith said, “God is not initially interested in making us strong, but through the power of the Holy Spirit causing us to recognize our weakness, we then discover our strength in Christ.”

In discussing strategies for survival on Saturday at the Worship Center, Dr. Smith told attenders, “You don’t need crack – you need Christ. You don’t need grass – you need grace. You don’t need coke. You need hope. You don’t need marijuana. You need Mary’s Jesus.”

Dr. Smith reminded participants, “God has no grandchildren – only children. You’ve got to know Him yourself.”

The Guido Bible Institute begins a new term at the beginning of May. Call the school, (912) 685-2222, or visit online for more details.
