Dear Bros in Christ,

Proverbs 27:17 As iron sharpens iron, So a man sharpens the countenance of his friend.
Brothers in Christ, this weekly encouragement 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.


Therefore, laying aside all malice, all deceit, hypocrisy, envy, and all evil
speaking, as newborn babes, desire the pure milk of the word, that you may
grow thereby, if indeed you have tasted that the Lord [is] gracious.[1Pe ter2:1-3
Bros, what an encouragement to change our behavior and to purify ourselves from conformity
with the world as Peter exhorts the pilgrims of the Dispersion to make their behavior
honorable in the eyes of the Gentiles even though the majority of them were actually Gentiles
themselves So then in this passage we as believers that want to be honorable in
representing the Lord can also be encouraged to change our behavior, lay aside malice-to put
away any ill will or harm that we might wish upon another. In that we might depart from any
semblance of conformity with the world to a desire of godliness and love.
As newborn babes surely crave and desire the pure milk. As a post-new believer do you
remember when you couldnt wait to crack the Word of God and get into that studying of His
word? You hungered and thirsted after it-you desired the pure milk of the word and remember
how sweet that milk was and how you were growing in the word? Are you desiring, craving,
and growing in the word today? Bros if indeed you have tasted that the Lord is gracious, and
maybe now down the road from when you first believed you feel stagnant or complacent in
your walk in the word and with the Lord. An you know something is not right in your walk,
you have been on auto pilot for a very long time and you have become stagnant or stale and
have lost the freshness or lost the joy or zeal that once accompanied you in your walk with the
Lord sure you know what you need to do, but maybe have been putting it off or resting on
your laurels instead of what the Lord did in your life and wills in your life-heart changed
behavior! desire the pure milk of the word, that you may grow thereby, in Psalm 37:4 it
says Delight yourself also in the LORD, And He shall give you the desires of your heart.
Its there for us bros if we desire it, the Lord is able to provide this work in our hearts- delight
yourself in the Lord and desire the pure milk of the word that you may grow and by applying
His word to your life you will be sustained by the word of God which lives and abides foreveramen!
