Happy Lord’s Day! Aren’t you glad that EVERY day is His, and that He calls us to celebrate together at least one day each week! What a privilege to serve the living God, and to fellowship with His people! The writer of Hebrews encourages us:
And let us consider how to stir up one another to love and good works, not neglecting to meet together, as is the habit of some, but encouraging one another, and all the more as you see the Day drawing near.
There is a very pertinent message for us there. The day of Christ’s return is near, and we must be about our Father’s business. Part of that “business” is stirring one another to love and good works. That is accomplished by meeting together and encouraging one another. Time is short and we must make this a priority as the day draws near!
With that in mind, I want to stir you up! A new Bible study is coming to both campuses of Calvary Community Church (Phoenix AZ) in September! I am working to complete a study I’ve titled What in the World is Going On: Today’s Prophetic Signs of the Return of Our King. With the same passion as before, we will examine what in the world is going on, will put today’s events into context of Bible prophecy, and will focus on our preparation for the coming of our King!
For the first time in my teaching career at Calvary, these classes will be available at both campuses beginning Sunday, September 17! Mark your calendar and join me at Northwest Campus (Prayer Room) at 9:00am or at Central Campus (Room 403) at 11:00am. Classes will last through the end of November.
Back in June, I asked you to join me in prayer for wisdom and direction…and I believe the Lord has been attentive to those prayers! While I don’t know fully all the Lord has in store, I can tell you that doors have opened for additional ministry opportunities. What all that entails is still not settled yet, but I will keep you apprised.
As a result, depending on how the Lord moves, these classes may well be the last that I teach for a while, as I allow Him to re-order my ministry! (Walking with the Lord is exciting, isn’t it!) So, if you are awaiting the right opportunity to jump into one of these classes, now is the time to jump! Mark your calendar, invite your friends and come join me, beginning September 17!
Meanwhile, don’t neglect meeting together today! Go stir someone up…go encourage someone…and go with urgency, knowing that our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ, is returning soon!
