New Year 2012

“In order to be able to be aroused to praise and
thank the Lord rightly it is necessary for us to bear
well in mind the good things He has done for us.
We have got all the fatherly love of God which
creation bears witness to!…” C. O. Rosenius
“..All nature sings, and round me rings the music of
the spheres….” Mary Babcock 1901
We have all the work and defense of the Son so
that no sin is imputed to us and no law or threats
befall us! We have got the Holy Spirit with all His
grace, chastisement and solace in our Hearts! Or
maybe is it a small thing to have only God? Only
God His friendship and His kingdom?..”continued
from above C.O. Rosenius “May thy rich grace
impart strength to my fainting heart, My zeal inspire;
As thou has died for me, O may my love to Thee Pure
warm and change-less be, A living fire.” Ray Palmer

The Old Year is soon to be gone, and the New Year is
soon to begin. Let us end the year with prayer and
begin the new year with the same.”

Oh Lord we thank you for all your grace, loving kindness
and tender mercies, for this life, all that we need and
more. Thank you for salvation so rich and free coming
to us without any merit or worthiness in us. coming to
us by Grace only, Faith only, Scripture only, Christ only,
by the Holy Ghost only.

For all the work of Jesus. Reconciliation, propitiation,
atonement, mediation, intercession. For us you sent Him
and freely he came, All the way from heaven to earth and
back again.

Oh Lord make us humble, keep us from presumption
and pride, Keep us from despair and unbelief.

Forgive all our sins of last year, of thy love and grace
cause there to be less sin next year. Fill us anew with the
Holy Spirit, strengthen us to walk faithfully in thy word so
not to bring shame to thy great Name.

Cause our hearts to burn with fervent love for one
another, and for the unsaved that we would freely share
the Gospel message of repentance and forgiveness of sins
where we live and wherever we travel. Amen

Happy and blessed New Year!

Reflections, Looking Ahead, Questions

For the American Church, how has the past year been?
For the Church whatever name it goes by, or you or I
whatever our individual name is. What has been our
priorities? 2010 is fast ending, 2011 is soon arriving.
What has it been in 2010? What will it be in 2011?
Have we sought the kingdom of God and his
righteousness? see Matt 6:33 or our own will and way?
Before you left your room in the morning did you
think to pray? Did we forget to pray? Jesus said Luke 18:1
“… that men ought always to pray, and not to faint;”
Have we prayed or fainted? Have we attended church worship
and the word, and Bible study regularly? or just not bothered?
The Bible says, Heb 10:24-25 “and let us consider one another
to provoke unto love and to good works: Not forsaking the
assembling of ourselves together, as the manner of some is;
but exhorting one another: and so much the more, as ye
see the day approaching.” Have we, will we? Did we? Will we
walk in the steps of Jesus? Apostle 1st Peter 2:21 “For even
here unto were ye called: because Christ also suffered for us,
leaving us an example, that ye should follow his steps:”Have
we suffered and followed in Jesus’ steps?, are we willing to?
Do we have a concern for lost souls? Jesus said of himself
Luke 19:10 “For the Son of man is come to seek and to save
that which was lost.” he also said “as my father sent me so
send I you” Have we obeyed our commission and calling?
Will we? Have we? Gal 6:2″Bear ye one another’s burdens,
and so fulfil the law of Christ.” Did we? Will we bear each
others burdens? Has love ruled our hearts and actions?
1sr Peter 1:22 “Seeing ye have purified your souls in obeying
the truth through the spirit unto unfeigned love of the
brethren, see that ye love one another with a pure heart
fervently:” Did fervent love rule? will it? Oh Holy Father our
wickedness and sins are many. We are in agreement with
Daniel 9:19-20 “O Lord, hear; O Lord, forgive; O Lord, hearken
and do; defer not, for thine own sake, O my God: for thy city
and thy people are called by thy name. And whiles I was
speaking, and praying, and confessing my sin and the sin of
my people Israel, and presenting my supplication before the
Lord my God for the holy mountain of my God;” Forgive us as
we call upon thy name Lord. Turn us Oh Lord and we shall be
turned grant us a fresh pouring out of your grace by Thy
Holy Spirit. Grant us Father in heaven strength to live for Thy
glory in all that we say and all that we do. Amen
