August is here. Now, we know that August is the eighth month of the year. We know it has 31 says. We probably all have family celebrations of some sort in this month. My brother and his son both have birthdays in August. My brother and his wife will celebrate ten years of marriage this month. Odds are, you have birthdays, anniversaries, vacations planned, or any number of other things going on this month. 


But, what do you really know about August? What is the origin of this month, with this name? Originally, the Roman calendar had ten months, where August was the sixth month. However, January and February were added to the calendar and August was demoted to the eighth month. Originally August was named with the Latin word for six, but with the change, it was named after the first emperor of the Roman Empire, August. August (the emperor) was born under the name Gaius Octavius. He was the great-grandnephew of Julius Caesar. 


Now, you might be asking yourself why all this information about a month of the year? Well, we are in the middle of the 260/5 sermon series, reading five chapters out of the New Testament each week. I have heard so many comments about what you have read that you didn’t realize was there. I have seen a lot of things in the scriptures that I have read dozens of times that I just never noticed before, too. Learning about August was really easy for me: yahoo search engine! Learning about God’s will for your life is easy too: open your Bible and join me as we continue in our 260/5 series this month.
