A Letter From Pastor P To NewSpring Church

Howdy NewSpring, Seven Things I Would Love To Share With You Today…

#1 - I absolutely LOVE what Jesus is doing in our church right now, especially in regards to the way He is stirring the heart of our men!  (Once again, check out I Corinthians 13:11!)  I lOVED the fact that we saw 201 people go public for Christ through baptism…and that we had an attendance record of nearly 19,000 people across seven campuses, it was amazing as we took time to focus on the fact that EVERY man needs to understand the following in regards to a woman…

  • Before She Was Your Wife She Was God’s Daughter - when we see her as a gift and not something/someone we “attained” then we will treat her with honor and respect.  (How does God feel about how you are treating His little girl?)
  • If You Do Not Lead Your Family Then satan Will - Men are called to lead (not control and dominate!)  And, leading IS hard, it IS awkward, but it IS worth the fight!
  • It’s Not Just What You Say, It’s How You Say It - Romans 8:1 and Ephesians 5:25-27 reminds us that we are to speak to (and about) our wife in a kind, considerate and affirming manner.  AND…if we don’t there will be consequences (see I Peter 3:7!)
  • Pursuit Is Intentional, Not Accidental - A man who is pursuing his wife effectively does not have time for porn or an affair!  (AND…had fun here reminding the single guys that pursuing a girl is not leading her on through obscure text messages for about three weeks or so…it’s about being a man and talking to her face to face!)

#2 - Men, if you want to read some more stuff I’ve written in regards to being a husband then you can check out the following links…

#3 - This coming Sunday MIGHT be one of THE MOST INTENSE messages we’ve ever done on Biblical manhood here at NewSpring Church as we deal with three things that a man cannot have!  I’m seriously excited about the fruit that I feel is going to come about as a result of this message!  I honestly believe if men could learn to allow Christ in them and through them to control THESE THREE THINGS that we would see our nation completely change in less than a year!!!

#4 - Parents of kids in KidSpring, Off The Rails begins this coming Sunday at every NewSpring campus!  (Check out the promo video here!)  It’s going to be one of the most amazing things your child has EVER experienced in church…I promise!!!

#5 - If you are wanting to get into God’s Word or are struggling in your personal time with God and have been looking for something to maybe freshen things up a bit…then stop by our devotional page (right here) at our NewSpring Church website and check out the resources available to help you take your walk with God to the next level.

#6 - As I said a few weeks ago…go ahead and put down the dates of August 24 & 25 on your calendar…TRUST ME, we’re going to do something as a church that we’ve NEVER attempted…and it’s going to be one of the most amazing things that we’ve ever had the privilege of experiencing!  Can’t wait to tell you more about it!  :-)

#7 - If you have recently received Christ and have not taken your next step by going public through baptism then check out this website to find out more information about baptism and/or to sign up!

That’s it for this week…I LOVE MY CHURCH!
