I enjoyed our time together this past Sunday getting to know you all and hearing your stories. I also enjoyed sharing my story with you. Now you know I am just an Ordinary Joe, just like you! The beauty of God’s love is the fact that He not only loves us Ordinary Joe’s, but He wants us to have a relationship with Him and the best way to start that relationship is to spend time with Him.
If you can remember, I used the analogy: you spend lots of time with your friends, so if you want a relationship with God, you need to spend time with Him.
So how do we get started? It’s easy. You open up that Bible. His 66 book love letter to us is in there and that’s how we get to know Him, and His son Jesus. So this week, I asked you to read one chapter of Proverbs a day, corresponding with the day of the month. So if today is February 14, you will read Proverbs 14. I also asked you to work through Proverbs 12 -17 this week and write down the one verse from each chapter that spoke to you or clicked with you.
I am looking forward to hearing your favorite verses this Sunday. Then, we are going to explore how we can talk to God. It’s going to be a great day!
