Happy New Year, brothers and sisters. Out with the old, in with the new. Can’t wait to see what the Lord will do in each of our lives and look forward to hearing about it, from each of you.
Father, I surrender to you, all things that distract from you today. Help me to see what is good, is right,is pure,is Holy. Let me see your goodness in the midst of a fallen world. May I see through your eyes. Amen
Let us all Remember, that this life, and our Faith, is not a game. We cant just dress up our lives to look good, but really not have pure motives. God sees everything, and knows our hearts. Not that we won’t make mistakes, but that we do walk in faith. It is Jesus who makes us right before a Holy God, and the Holy Spirit, who strengthens us to persevere, and be faithful. One day we will be made perfect, but until then, may we be filled with the spirit, humbled by the gift of salvation, through Faith, and walk with confidence that God loves us. May we show that same love to others today and every day.
Every man’s way is right in his own eyes, But the Lord weighs the hearts.
Proverbs 21:2 NASB
If we hear, and don’t act upon our faith, what good is it? Is the Gospel, just for us to treasure in our hearts, and not to share with others? May it never be. It’s always about others.
But prove yourselves doers of the word, and not merely hearers who delude themselves. For if anyone is a hearer of the word and not a doer, he is like a man who looks at his natural face in a mirror; for once he has looked at himself and gone away, he has immediately forgotten what kind of person he was.
James 1:22-24 NASB
