This Friday morning at One Thing for Men we will launch into Memorial Day Weekend in the best way possible, around the tables and in the Word at Cabernet Steakhouse!
This will be our final time together before we come back in August for men’s weekend summit at Encounter 2016.
By the way, I hope that you have already registered for this amazing event, and I hope that you have invited someone to come with you too… you’ll be glad you did!
Since this is our last week together I couldn’t help but think of one of my all time favorite passages in Scripture. It’s found in that wonderful joy-filled book, written by the Apostle Paul while under arrest in Rome… the Book of Philippians.
The purpose of Paul’s letter to the church at Philippi, a church he started on his second missionary journey and the very first church established on the European continent, was to thank the Philippians for the gift they had sent him and to strengthen them by showing that true joy comes through Christ alone.
Tucked away in chapter 3, in verses 13 and 14 Paul, under the inspiration of the Holy Spirit, uses an athletic illustration to teach us two very important life lesson:
- How to handle our past and
- How to face our future.
The past and the future is something that every one of us has in common.
Oh, our pasts and our futures may not be exactly the same, but they all do include failures and successes, trials and triumphs, as well as difficulties and delights.
This week we’ll unpack this passage together to discover some life-altering truth.
I’d like to encourage you to bring your Bible and a pen or pencil with you this Friday, as we journey our way through this rich text. When all the dust has settled, I believe both you and I will have a clear launching point to make this the very best summer ever!
Plan on arriving early because you will not want to miss a single minute.
With great expectancy I will see you around the tables on Friday!
