But the things which God announced beforehand by the mouth of all the prophets, that His Christ would suffer, He has thus fulfilled.

Father, may we all, who profess your name, be telling a lost world, the Good News, that our souls were bought with a price, that we can never repay, by Jesus perfect life, his giving of himself for us, out of perfect love, that we might be rescued from ourselves, to a new life in him. Your word never returns empty, and YOUR LOVE NEVER FAILS.

He Restores my Soul. Surely goodness and lovingkindness will follow me all the days of my life, And I will dwell in the house of the Lord forever.

Our prayers are not for us to be seen, but for us and our hearts to be seen by God. It is not for us to receive Glory, but for him to receive Glory and Honor and Praise, and to petition him for his will ours needs? It’s not about us, but about him.

In my own strength, I would not have the capacity to love, but Paul says, in Philippians, I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me. –Lord, through your strength, help me to love others who are unlovable, just as I was to you.–

May we wait patiently, on you, O Lord. May we not look at what we don’t have yet, but see the blessings and grace, we have already received. May we look forward, to so much more, when we receive our final crowns. Our Hope is in you, Lord. The one who has rescued us from destruction, through Jesus!

Repent, for the kingdom of heaven is at hand. Vs 3:2

Taken from MacArthur study Bible.

Repent. This is no mere academic change of mind, nor mere regret or remorse. John the Baptist spoke of repentance as a radical turning from sin that inevitably became manifest in the fruit of righteousness (v. 8 ). Jesus’ first sermon began with the same imperative ( 4:17 ). For a discussion of the nature of repentance, see notes on 2Co 7:8–11

Repentance itself is not a work, but works are its inevitable fruit. Repentance and faith are inextricably linked in Scripture. Repentance means turning from one’s sin, and faith is turning to God (cf. 1Th. 1:9 ). They are like opposite sides of the same coin. That is why both are linked to conversion ( Mk 1:15 ; Ac 3:19 ; 20:21 ). Note that the works John demanded to see were “fruit” of repentance. But repentance itself is no more a “work” than faith is ( see note on 2Ti 2:25

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.

Just as Satan tempted Jesus in the wilderness, by twisting the word of God, so shall he try to do to us, who follow Jesus. We must speak Gods truth to each other, and not worldly wisdom, which will lead us down a path of destruction. What will you choose, Life or Death? Choose Life! This world is not our eternal home.

The fear if the Lord, is the beginning of Wisdom. That initial fear of what we deserve, turns into devotion for what we didn’t get. Our God is truly an awesome God.

The idea is, if someone is caught or struggling with sin, to help that person, to be restored to God. Help that person to carry that burden, taking some of that load off of him or her. Is there someone we know today, who needs our help? Please don’t walk by them today and ignore the cry for help. This is true love, but it carries a cost.
