A New Year, A New You

As I type this, we have less than 364 days left in 2017. How many New Year’s Resolutions have you broken already?

Yesterday morning, I challenged our church to read through the New Testament in 2017. Together. We’re going to use The Navigators’ Discipleship Journal 5x5x5 plan. You can use this link for the YouVersion Bible App to track your progress.

I also challenged the church to memorize twelve passages from the Bible in 2017. Together.

We’ll start with Joshua 1:8:

Joshua 1:8 (ESV)
This Book of the Law shall not depart from your mouth, but you shall meditate on it day and night, so that you may be careful to do according to all that is written in it. For then you will make your way prosperous, and then you will have good success.

In a mixed blessing, I received a text tonight from one of our members who suggested that my book had a typo. OUCH! And I thought my first book was inerrant. Not quite! As I said, this was a mixed blessing; at least I know that one person is reading my book! Smile And it’s a good reminder that there’s only ONE Book that’s inerrant!

If you’re interested in having a copy, please use my contact page (donations will be appreciated). I hope to have an eBook version available in a couple of days. Go ahead and start reading the New Testament and memorizing Joshua 1:8, the book will just add a little fuel to the fire to encourage you in your pursuit of God this year.

I’ll update you here, Facebook, Twitter, and the church website when the eBook (and Sunday’s Sermon) is available.

Sunday’s sermon is now online at the church website, as well as iTUNES! You can subscribe to my podcast here!


Will you join us in reading through the New Testament together and committing a few Bible verses to memory together in 2017? God has some pretty powerful promises of success and prosperity for those who do! Join us!
