Over the course of the next five weeks we’ll explore the most needful thing of our lives – spending time developing a deep, personal relationship with the One who made us and loves us. As we look to the Bible this week, we will be challenged to view our relationship with God, not as one aspect of our busy lives, but as the very reason we exist. In the coming weeks, we will learn that intimacy with God comes through delighting in His Word, through prayer and fasting, through suffering, and through gathering with others who know and love Him. As we prepare to gather this Sunday, take some time to pray that God would use this series in YOUR life as well as in your family and small group. Begin to seriously consider what changes you might need to make in order to cultivate a deep relationship with your God. I know God has much growth in store for us in the coming weeks!
