Zion Boot Camp – 2017
A few of the guys taking a break for lunch at Jack’s Grill
Take a moment to register for this year’s Zion retreat. Here is the link: E2Vegas.org/ZionBootcamp For all of us, we can quickly be pulled into the problems and issues of the day….. especially these days … ugh! Make the commitment to spend a couple days at a breath-taking venue with other men that desire to.. Seek FIRST His Kingdom and His Righteousness (Matt 6:33).
Make Note: We will have NO Friday Men’s Group on Oct 5th.
Please pray for all the wives, children and extended families. There are many needs from so many!
See you at noon……….
An often overlooked verse:
“So then, as we have opportunity, let us do good to everyone, and especially to those who are of the household of faith.” (Galatians 6:10)
Question: How are you measuring up with this verse?

God Numbers Your Days – Day 272 Red Book
(Note: Years ago, when I would read devotions like this one, they would upset me. Spending time with like-minded brothers around God’s Word brought clarity to these truths and a whole new level of “Freedom in Christ.” Bring your questions to Zion)
IF INTIMACY WITH CHRIST SEEMS A DISTANT REALITY , there may be a couple of possibilities as to why :
(1) You do not have God’s word in your heart
(2) You are not obeying the word of God.
“He who has My commandments and keeps them , he it is who loves Me; and he who loves Me shall be loved by My Father, and I will love him, and will disclose Myself to him .” (Jn. 14:21)
God calls us to simple, unequivocal obedience of His word. Often, however in our ignorance or rebellion we:
Don’t know what the Word of God says :
God to Adam : “…from the tree…you shall not eat, for in the day that you eat from it you shall surly die.” (Gen. 2:17)
Eve to Satan : ” …God has said, ‘You shall not eat from it or touch it…” (Gen. 3:3) Eve, after adding to God’s word soon succumbs to Satan’s seduction.
Challenge the authority of the Word of God :
“And the serpent said (to Eve)…’You surely shall not die! For God knows that in the day you eat from it (the tree) your eyes will be opened, and you will be like God, knowing good and evil.’ ” (Gen 3:4,5)
Water down the Word of God :
“…Many peddle (and) ...adulterate the word of God…” (II Cor. 2:17;3:2)
Twist the Word of God :
“The untaught and unstable distort (the word of God) …to their own destruction.”
(II Pet. 3:16)
The intimacy with Christ we long for is based on a childlike understanding and response to the word of God. Do we have the courage, faith and will to seek out, discover and obey the word in this manner?
My prayer is that you are having a great week!

Men: One of our dear brothers sent this short devotional. It is profound!
