Baptists Preaching is a column from the Baptist Standard. It is not an effort to advance any one theology or style but to present what a collection of Baptists considers a word from God.

Pastor Kan’Dace Brock: Designed with Purpose in Mind (Psalm 139:11-14)
Pastor Kan’Dace Brock, lead pastor and co-founder of The Message Church in San Antonio, encouraged her hearers to know they are designed by God for a purpose. Brock addressed God’s omnipresence and omniscience and detailed milestones of a baby’s development during pregnancy. She proclaimed: “God didn’t outsource the creation process. God didn’t use secondhand materials.”
Brock called her hearers to do as David did in response to knowing he was “fearfully and wonderfully made” by God. She exhorted them to praise God and to regard themselves as “fierce and fabulous.” Finally, she asked, “Do you know God for yourself?”
This sermon was delivered on Apr. 26, 2019, at a women’s conference at Resurrection Baptist Church in San Antonio. The theme of the conference was “Finding Her.”
