CONSIDER THIS:
by Bro. Sid Sample
A BRAND NEW YEAR! It hardly seems possible.
Where has the last one gone? Time was ordained by
God at creaon. It is something that all of us have the
same amount of each day. We may not think of it as
such, but TIME is precious!
Helen Waterman's poem is profound:
"But now, O Lord, again I am given a year
As Bright and new as any year could be.
I pray that I may keep it shining bright
Unl, with pride, I give it back to Thee."
LET ME SUGGEST A CRITERIA FOR NEW YEAR'S RESOLUTIONS. Suppose you knew
that Jesus would return this year, what goals would you set? What changes would
you make in your life style? How would you re-order your world?
I HAVE THOUGHT ABOUT IT! I pray that our Lord will give all of us a greater hunger
and thirst for the things of God - His Church, His Word, Prayer, Witnessing, Fellowship
of God's people and a greater Ministry to the lost and hurng.
II TIMOTHY 2:15, “Be diligent to present yourself approved to God, a worker who does
not need to be ashamed, rightly dividing the word of truth." What would happen this
year if we determined that in all be do we will seek the approval of God?
WE LIVE IN DIFFICULT TIMES. WE NEED THE LORD! William Penn (1644-1718) said, "
If we are not governed by God, then we will be ruled by tyrants." In Penn's day, they
knew the value of worshipping God, obeying His Word and seeking to honor Him as
Lord of Lord's. In our day, we have thrown out the Standard (Bible) for what is right
and what is wrong. The concept of a free society is that these maers are of private
conscience, with nal choice belonging to the individual. The Bible speaks of a me
when "everyone did what was right in his own eyes, (Judges 21:25). On the surface a
value-free society sounds progressive and enlightened. But, take a look at where it
has brought us. We can't survive is we connue down this path. We desperately need
a turning to God; a turning to His Word and Holy instrucons for all of humanity.
NEW LIFE BAPTIST is on the forefront of trying to get back to where God wants us to
be! It is a spiritual bale that we nd ourselves in. Praise God for all of you who have
joined us in the bale. Let the year of 2018 be a year when we ourselves are
determined to be the best Chrisan Soldier we can be and with God's help, we will
enlist as many as we can during the year to help in bale. Time is short!
