Metro East Ministries,

Summer is almost over, can you believe it!? It was great reading & praying through Proverbs 27 this morning with a brother at the park. There's nothing like listening to God's Word and praying together with someone else; it bonds you, helps you stay connected, allows you to hear each other's heart & helps you grow in your relationships. This Fall/ Autumn let's BUILD deeper relationships & go after digging deeper into God's Word. That's why the lesson this past Sunday – "The God of all comfort" - is instrumental to our spiritual growth (2 Corinthians 1:3-11;). God says we need to comfort one another with His comfort. Take time to go over the lesson from this past week in your own times with God. Initiate a time or set something up with someone to go read scriptures and or go pray together.


Ray Vidrio's Baptism

I'm excited to dig deeper into the Old Testament these last 4 months of 2014. I will be celebrating my 20th year as a Christian this Nov. At some point of our Christian faith we should all be ready to "leave the elementary teachings about Christ and go on to maturity" (Hebrews 6:1;). Unfortunately, many of our younger Christians never make that transition from the "milk" of spiritual infancy to the "solid food" of maturity (Hebrews 5:12-13;). A strong grasp of the Old Testament is one of the pillars of Christian maturity. As Paul wrote, " For everything that was written in the past was written to teach us, so that through endurance and the encouragement of the Scriptures we might have hope" (Romans 15:4;). The Old Testament provides teaching and encouragement so that our younger Christians may stand firm in their faith & have hope.

God will do amazing things the last 4 months of 2014!! Let's THRIVE together.
