Together: Mike Satterfield


MONTGOMERY (Maggie Walsh) — When Mike Satterfield, founder of Field of Grace Ministries, said, “He got,” participants yelled “up.”

We serve a risen Savior, Satterfield said during the Alabama Baptist Pastors Conference, and He is no longer in the grave. But instead of the truth of our living God being an uncontainable exclamation, we too often treat it like the best-kept secret in our lives, he said.

“The Bible has told me the best-kept secret in town and I can’t keep it to myself because secrets are hard to keep. And I refuse to keep this secret.

“Why are you down in the mouth? You’ve got a Word from the Savior that can’t keep you down,” he said. “It’s fulfillment of prophecy. It’s gospel good news.”

It’s about more than just going to church — it’s about being the Church, Satterfield said. What does that mean for Christians?

“We have to believe it, receive it and spread it,” he said, adding that before you share who God is with the rest of the world you have to share Him at home. God can overcome anything the world hurls your way, Satterfield said.

“You ought not be walking in death sentences when we have a life-giving message.

“All of us need to be about the business of letting the world know that He is of the business of washing this world.”
