“For you have NOT passed this way before..” Joshua 3 : 4
A Happy and Blessed New Year – Friends.
As we embark into another year.
As we look forward – we are thankful for a God
who knows the future –
and has promised to walk with us all the way.
The NEW YEAR– Marks the passing of time.
Many regard – TIME- that steals our youth;
dims ours eyes; Slows our steps and saps our vitality.
They view TIME- as an enemy – we wrestle in mortal combat.
But for the CHRISTIAN -TIME- extends beyond an earthly lifetime-
into the COUNTLESS AGES OF ETERNITY.
The passing of TIME – takes the Christian
nearer and nearer to a better land….
Where we shall see our Savior face to face.
The important thing is to walk with the LORD –
through the days of this NEW YEAR!
“I said to the man – who stood at the gate of the year:
‘Give me a light, that I may tread safely into the darkness’.
And he replied– “Go out into the darkness-
And put your hand – into the hand of God.
It shall be to you better than light
And safer than a known way.”

“I have LOVED thee with an everlasting Love…
therefore with loving kindness have I drawn thee.”
Jeremiah 31 : 3
The Lord of life and glory clothed His divinity
with humanity to demonstrate
to man that God through the
GIFT of Christ would connect us with Him.
In all the gracious deeds that Jesus did,
He sought to impress upon men the attributes of God…
Jesus would have us understand the love of the Father
and He seeks to draw us to Him
by presenting His Parental grace.
It was only by living among men that He
could reveal the mercy, compassion and
love of His heavenly Father.
For it was only by actions that He could
set forth the grace of God.
Christ came to manifest the love of God to the world…
To draw the hearts of all men to Himself.
The first step is to respond to the love of Christ-
So we can understand the joy and peace of God.
If we respond- He will lead us on
step by step to a full knowledge of Himself-
and this is LIFE ETERNAL!

“The Lord is good, a strong hold in the day of trouble –
and He knoweth them that trust in Him.”
Nahum 1 : 7
We have rich promises in the Word of God’-
It would be a great folly for any of us
to take any of the credit to ourselves
for any success we may have.
The more humbly we walk with God,
the more He will manifest Himself to us.
The reason that we do not have greater success
in the work is because we depend on our own efforts
rather than upon the help of God.
We must learn to go to our heavenly Father,
just as a child goes to his earthly parents.
While every one of God’s workmen should cultivate
his powers to the best of his ability,
yet he should not trust in these powers…
Make of yourselves everything that it is possible
for you to make and then trust the rest to God.
WISHING YOU A BLESSED SABBATH-
