New Year 2013 - Let Us Fix Our Eyes on Jesus

Hebrews 12: 1, 2 As I thought and prayed over our congregation, the conviction came to me that we should intentionally focus on the Lord Jesus Christ. I was drawn to this verse because of the command in the first phrase: “Let us fix our eyes on Jesus.” That speaks of united action - “Let us.” It speaks of a definite action-“fix our eyes.” And it speaks of a single aim - “on Jesus.” My prayer is that we as a congregation will come to know him better than ever, to love him more and more, to serve him with renewed enthusiasm, and to declare His Name with increasing vigour. We want to show that Christ not only speaks today but that he is the answer to our deepest needs. We must lift up Jesus

New Year 2013 – Fear Not and Press On!

Philippians 3: 12 - 14 “Worry has become part of our culture. You could write on countless gravestones the epitaph: ‘Hurried, Worried, Buried.’” Newspaper article begins with these ominous words: “The dawn of a new year is usually a time of hope and ambition, of dreams for the future and thoughts of a better life. But it is a long time since many of us looked forward to the new year with such anxiety, even dread.” The article mentions the possible collapse of the Euro, trouble in the Middle East, the rise of China, and the possibility of further global recession. No wonder we feel shaky and uncertain. I can’t blame anyone for feeling a bit worried right now. Even though the Bible says “

New Year 2013 - Iron Shoes God’s Promise for Every New Year

Deuteronomy 33: 25 “The bolts of your gates will be iron and bronze, and your strength will equal your days” (NIV). “Thy shoes shall be iron and brass; and as thy days, so shall thy strength be” (KJV). Although the symbolism is different, the final meaning in either case is the same. For this message, I am going to follow the KJV, which speaks of “iron shoes” for a rocky road. As we stand on the brink of a new year, we wonder what the future holds. Most of us probably approach a milestone like this with a combination of excitement and a bit of apprehension. We’re excited about what 2013 might mean for us, and for the same reason we’re aware of possible peril, danger and difficulty. Certai

New Year 2013 – God is Not Finished....Yet!

“This is what the LORD Almighty says: “Many peoples and the inhabitants of many cities will yet come” (Zechariah 8: 20). “But if we hope for what we do not yet have, we wait for it patiently” (Romans 8: 25). These verses would seem to have nothing in common except the word “yet.” I’ve been thinking about that little word a lot lately. “He is not saved yet.” The little word “yet” makes all the difference. “This situation is not any better yet, but I don’t believe that God is through with this situation yet.” That little word that makes all the difference. It’s not better yet! Good theology can save your life. Good theology makes all the difference as we face an uncertain future. A. W.
