Start Your Summer Off Right With New Thru 30!

Summer is almost here and over the years I've watched countless people grow INDIFFERENT toward their faith during this season.  I want this summer to be DIFFERENT.  My ultimate desire is that people in the life of our church would prosper in every area of their lives!  For this to happen, God's Word must be THE priority.  Listening, learning, meditating, memorizing, confessing, declaring, living out... God's Word will bring success. (reference Psalm 1, Joshua 1)

So, we are going to do something.  It's something we SHOULD do. It's something we WANT to do. It's something we NEED to do. And the best part is… we’re doing it together.  Every year thousands of people promise themselves they’re going to do it this year. They’re going to read through the Bible. Or they’re going to read a little bit everyday. Or they’re just going to start fresh and do better this year. Most people don’t make it. Not even through the first month.  Maybe you are one of them! Pause.  Take a deep breath and think about the fact that 2013 is almost half over.  It's time to get moving.  It's time to begin. We’re going to start with something we can all handle.  This June we’re reading thru the New Testament. And we’re doing it in 30 days.  It’s called New Thru 30, a reading plan, a sermon series and an investment into our lives this summer.

Make the decision right now that your future is worth the investment.  The Bible is unlike any other book.  Hebrews 4:12 tells us, "For the word of God is alive and powerful...".  God's Word will keep you from sin (Psalm 119:11) and give wisdom for your future (Proverbs 2:6).  Satan (your adversary), the enemy of your soul, doesn't take the summer off from trying to destroy your life so it would be foolish to take the summer off from defending yourself against his well planned attacks.  The Apostle Paul reminds us to, "Put on salvation as your helmet, and take the sword of the Spirit, which is the word of God." (Ephesians 6:17)  So here's the plan:

Are you ready to be new?  For 30 days in June we are going to grow in God's Word and in our relationship with Christ like never before!  Get ready this summer, we are going to a Whole Nutha Level!
