What Paul is clearly telling the church at Corinth is that unless they are intimately connected to God’s Spirit—having allowed God’s Spirit to reveal God’s wisdom to them, they’ll never understand the mysteries of God—things like ‘how to love God.’ Only God’s Spirit in our lives will make that possible! So, as we begin this new year together, let me ask you this: Are you open to the Spirit of God inhabiting your life—taking up residence in you—so that you’ll begin to understand the mysteries of God—things like ‘how to love God’ with your whole life? If you are, then we can all get excited together about God’s promise to us in this verse from above (1 Cor. 2:9, NLT): “That is what the Scriptures mean when they say, ‘No eye has seen, no ear has heard, and no mind has imagined what God has prepared for those who love him.’” Are you ready to allow God’s Spirit to work in and through you, that you might begin to understand the wisdom of God—‘how to love God.’ That’s where we have to begin. Then, we can look forward to all that God has prepared for us! And it sounds like something this ol’ world has never seen before… Lookin’ forward to learning together in the New Year,

Pastor Rom THE HOLY LAND IS ON THE HORIZON! It is not too early to begin thinking about a possible trip to the Holy Land one year from now! Pegram-Hosted Tours is announcing that they will be going to the Holy Land in January of 2013. It will be a 13-day tour, th th leaving on the 12 of January and returning home by the 24 of the month. On this tour, we will be traveling the length and breadth of the Holy Land—from the Red Sea in the south to Mount Hermon in the north, and from the Dead Sea in the east to the Mediterranean in the west. There will be new stops on this tour that we’ve not seen in the past (always a surprise!). And Malcolm Cartier, the best tour guide that Israel has to offer, will once again be guiding our tour while in the Holy Land. Please do prayerfully consider this very important opportunity—a great way to grow in your personal walk with God … by walking the land where Jesus walked! More information will be coming out soon! If you have any questions, please make sure that you ask Pastor Rom (pastorrom@dodgevilleumc.org or 608-417-0060)…
