Rising Temps

by Pastor Mike Winfree on October 1, 2014
Dear Church Family,
       The air is changing.  I’m not talking about the cool mornings and cooler days, I’m talking about the temperature that’s rising in our hearts.  The Lord, in Revelation 3:15, says, “I wish you were hot or cold.”  Well, I don’t know about all of you, but I know some of you are becoming spiritually hot.  God is doing a work in many hearts, and I am so grateful to Him for that.  That is what the Christian life is about.  It’s about God showing us new things, and obeying.  It’s about hearing the Word of God and doing what it says.  It’s about being strengthened in our inner man , in our spirit.
I have talked a little about a new ministry called “Next Step”.  I have started two discipleship groups, one for the men and one for the women.  It is the fist step in the “Next Step” ministry.  It will start off slowly but will multiply quickly.
Can I ask you a few questions?  First, are you saved?  If you are not, then your next step would be to trust Jesus Christ as your Savior and Lord.  If you are saved, but there is no activity toward Christ in your life, maybe your next step would be to read one verse a day and pray a short prayer.  Maybe you are saved and read the Word of God every day, but you have never really got into studying the Word of God.  You may want to pick a subject or person or book from the Bible and dig deeper in the Word.  The point is this, no matter where you are with your relationship with Christ, it can always improve.  The way for that to happen is to take the NEXT STEP.

Serving the Savior,
Pastor Mike
