Happy New Years

Therefore if any man be in Christ, he is a new creature: old things are passed away; behold, all things are become new. 2 Corinthians 5:17

Every New Year’s we try to start over, we reflect on the past year and our failures and downfalls.  We then usually make a commitment to make changes or improvements in our lives

This is the same when you give your life to Jesus, you become transformed and work upon improving yourself and your life so it can Glorify God.

(Ephesians 23-24) “And be renewed in the spirit of your mind; And that ye put on the new man, which after God is created in righteousness and true holiness.”

Does this mean thru Jesus we become perfect? Of course not, the reason we need Jesus is because were not perfect. He paid the price for our sins, thru him we can learn to become transformed.

(Philippians 1:6) “Being confident of this, that he who began a good work in you will carry it on to completion until the day of Christ Jesus.”

To really begin to change we need to learn humility and love. We need learn to let go of our pride and trust in God.  Jesus taught us all about humility and love. He gave himself up to be mocked and crucified to save us all. How many of us would be willing to do this?

(Proverbs 11:2) ” When pride comes, then comes disgrace, but with humility comes wisdom.”

So this New Year’s reflect on your life, reflect on your legacy, what would people say of you? Are you leading the life you wish? What captures your heart?

(Proverbs 27:9) “As water reflects the face, so one’s life reflects the heart.”

This New Years let’s make a commitment to Christ..Give your life to Jesus..carry your cross and follow him..and you will see your old self pass away and your new self-become transformed. Amen

Happy Thanksgiving

Thanks be unto God for his unspeakable gift. 2 Corinthians 9:15
What are you thankful for today? Your family? Your health? Your turkey? These are all great gifts from God. But let also remember to be thankful for the greatest gift God gave us all Jesus
For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life. (John3:16)
Jesus paid the ultimate sacrifice for all of us, we need to always remember this and give thanks daily. Without him there would be no hope for any of us.
As it says in Ephesians 1:16 “Cease not to give thanks for you, making mention of you in my prayers;” Never stop giving thanks and praise to our Messiah for his love endures forever. Be thankful every day for everything you have been giving and he provided.
Often during the holidays we get stressed out, family disputes, holiday traveling, ect. Let’s remember to focus on the blessing of the moment.
The fact you have a family to share Thanksgiving with is a blessing, let’s Thank God. The fact you have food to feed your family is a blessing. Thank God. You actually have a vehicle to travel, instead of complaining about gas prices, Thank God
I think Paul said it best in Philippians 4:11 “I am not saying this because I am in need, for I have learned to be content whatever the circumstances.” Learn to be Thankful and content with the life God has giving you.
So don’t waste this Thanksgiving being stressed out or disputing with you family, rejoice in God and be Thankful for all you have been giving including the love of Jesus Christ. Amen
