Good afternoon. I look forward to seeing you this Sunday for the conclusion of our Serve series. One of the truths that we’re learning is that it is very easy to lose sight of the simple, but important aspects of our faith in the business of life.

The truth is that we need to ground ourselves in God’s word if we want to grow in faith. The Bible tells us the truth of who God is. If you want to know more about God and His promises, reading the Bible is your next step.

My challenge to you is to take just 10 Minutes a day.
You can spare that, right? Reading the Bible for just 10 minutes a day can change the rest of your days. On staff, we call this winning the first battle of the day. Reading scripture will bring you hope, encouragement, guidance, and practical advice on the everyday issues you’re facing. The Bible is relevant to everyone, everywhere, at any time.

You can’t have a close relationship with someone you never talk to. It’s impossible. God’s word – the Bible – is the primary way He speaks to us. It’s the absolute best way to discover how to follow Jesus on a daily basis. If you want to know more about God and His promises, reading the Bible is your next step.

If you need some help on where to start, here are a few suggestions:
* Just start reading the Gospel of Mark.
* Pick up a copy of, “The Word For You Today” in the FLC or Sanctuary lobbies
* Download the Effort App from the App Store. It has a Bible Reading Plan Built in

However you choose to engage, take 10 minutes a day and start diving into God’s word.
Grace & Peace,
