Happy post-Easter, gentlemen! I hope everyone enjoyed a brief break over the holiday and Spring Break. This week “begins anew”….a new series and a journey of 90 days of devotionals.
We’ll begin tomorrow, Friday, with the first six devotions of our book, “No More Excuses” by Tony Evans. If you haven’t ordered the book yet, please do that in the next day or so. (See my previous post on this site for the Amazon link to the book.) And plan to join us on Friday regardless if you’ve gotten the book, haven’t read the assigned devotions this week….or even both!
The scripture reading for the first six are as follows:
- Colossians 1:17
- John 1:1
- Romans 3:23
- 1 John 1:9
- Philippians 2:8
- John 14:6
Also, if you have the book, read the author’s introduction section where he lays out a sports-minded theme, referencing the term “loser’s limp”. Think about the outfielder or wide receiver who misses the catch, stumbles down, but gets up limping as if to blame the error on a pulled hamstring.
“Not so fast” says our author!
As you prepare for the 90-days journey ahead, ask yourself are you blaming a fake injury on losing focus to God’s teachings….do you have a “loser’s limp”? I know at times I certainly do….and this next 90 days is all about developing some muscle memory so we no long use a false injury to mask what’s really causing us to lose focus.
Zoom invites are the same as before. I look forward to seeing you virtually in the morning and kicking off our new series.
