Dear Bros in Christ,

Proverbs 27:17 As iron sharpens iron, So a man sharpens the countenance of his friend. Brothers in Christ, this monthly devotional is sent and meant to be an encouragement to all and to build up and edify in the Lord Jesus Christ. Oikodome means "Builder". The Lord has put this on my heart to send out a monthly Iron Man Oikodome {oy-kod-om-ay'} to build up and encourage the men who love and follow Jesus Christ in their walk with Him. Hebrews 3:13 "But encourage one another daily, as long as it is called Today, so that none of you may be hardened by sin's deceitfulness." PRAYER REQUESTS: If you have any prayer requests please send them and I will send them out to the bros for prayer, if privacy is needed I will send in a discreet way.

IRON MAN OIKODOME BOX TOP 074 For what will it profit a man if he gains the whole world, and loses his own soul? 37"Or what will a man give in exchange for his soul" (MARK 8:36-37NKJV)? SOUL Bros even though we gain all the riches this world has to offer nothing can compare to what we have in Christ! Losing your soul is not worth the eternal consequences. Usually when we get all that we want we realize thats not what we really want or need There is only so much a man can gain if he gains the whole world and its riches until he starts rapidly losing his soul, you trade your soul in exchange to become that man who has the world at his command or in his wallet. Typical trick of the enemy he leads you little by little down the path of destruction with the sweetness of everything this world has to offer until bam you are the last one to find out you sold out your soul for the goods or that life of this world He led you into a trap, a dead end, a deep miry pit, and a snare until he owned you; the sweetness of the sin has turned bittersweet all the while you thought you owned your soul! But it was taken by the lust of your fleshly heart yearning for more never being content or satisfied; Hell and Destruction are never full; So the eyes of man are never satisfied (Proverbs 27:20 NKJV). You were tricked out totally by the devil! Oh yes this has happened to all of us at one time or another before coming to the Lord and maybe for some it may be happening now I think it is easy to sell your soul trying to gain the world but hard and next to impossible to try and buy it back! Except were it not for Christ. He is the One true and only soul redeemer! Once you have sold your soul in an attempt to gain all the world has to offer; the only way you can ever get it back is by receiving the Lord Jesus because purchasing your soul is what He will doAnd He did already by His blood that was shed on Calvary! But God demonstrates His own love toward us, in that while we were still sinners, Christ died for us (Romans 5:8 NKJV). For me after coming to Christ my worldly wealth changed vastly from worldly goods to His saving grace, goodness and mercy- I gained much more value than the whole world My heart was changed from hardness that comes from years of sin to His loving saving grace, loving kindness, mercy, and gentleness. I for one am always so thankful for His unmerited favor-grace, oh yeah bro! From my thoughts of self-absorption and sinful behavior to salvation and obedience to meditation of all that my Lord has done and continues to do-His works not mine! My bankroll is the Joy of the Lord and it is larger and stronger than anything this world has to offer and can never be exhausted because the Lord supplies a never ending abundance, so I have more Joy than the happiness this world could ever offer, for the joy of the LORD is your strength (Nehemiah 8:10 NKJV). Lord please help any of us who have given way to the worlds goods and to turn away from the enemy-the soul collector that uses sin to steal our souls and to return to You and never look anywhere else except to You. Bring my soul out of prison, That I may praise Your name; The righteous shall surround me, For You shall deal bountifully with me (Psalm 142:7 NKJV). For You alone meet all our needs and our soul belongs to You and You alone forever and everamen! Agape,
Daniel Wright Iron Man Oikodome Proverbs 27:17
