The words that I speak to you, they are Spirit, and they are life. John 6:63
The Lord’s Day, January 3, 2021
to our church & fellowship
Anyone who does not have the Spirit of Christ does not belong to him. But if Christ is in you, although the body is dead because of sin, the Spirit is life because of righteousness Romans 8:9-10
I am speaking the truth in Christ—I am not lying; my conscience bears me witness in the Holy Spirit that I have great sorrow and unceasing anguish in my heart. Romans 9:1-2
Paul introduces this particular section (Ch 9-11) with a startling expression of his inner feelings regarding the soul of his people, the Israelites. The expressions “great sorrow” and “unceasing anguish” are worth of our meditation. One can start by comparing them with the joy expressed in chapter eight. The contrast is startling! After discussing the victory life over life’s circumstances, Paul turns to his own people, the Israelites. He sees so many of them lost in the darkness of a religious tradition, expressed with elaborated worship, but yet empty. This is because they rejected the very Person that the temple rituals were pointing to. Yet, Paul, whose heart like His Lord’s, was full of compassion when he saw the lost. He was deeply concern for their souls. His great sorrow and unceasing anguish proves how much Paul cared about the cross and the responsibility of those now carrying it. Do you have a burden for the lost? If not, pray that you do!

PRAYING FOR THE NEXT GENERATION We are in that time of the year where most people make resolutions... To start something new and also to change..(which is not bad) Who has young children might probably agree that children make no resolutions…for them there is no new year, but just continuation... And so shall it be. We need to pray that our children fit in the routine to acknowledge God’s presence in their life, thank and praise Him. What a blessing to see them daily growing in Jesus. One might agree that resolutions should be made. Let one of them be evangelism…let us reach out for children in our community, prayerfully sharing the Good news with them. Finally let us also not forget those young ones that tasted God’s goodness but have fallen from their faith. God hears the prayers of the just.
A man who lives at peace suspects no one. But a man who is tense and agitated by evil is troubled with all kinds of suspicions; he is never at peace with himself, nor does he permit others to be at peace.

WOL Marriage Devotion
GOD’S PLAN FOR A MARRIAGE IS THE BEST PLAN. We just started a new year. Many people are uncertain about what 2021 will bring with it. The COVID pandemic destroyed everybody’s plans, except for those whose life seeks God’s plan. The pandemic did not catch God by surprise. He knew about it even before He created the earth. Therefore, in harmony with God, the family could adjust to life and keep on doing the Lord’s purpose. In a time of disaster, the Lord is still working out his plans for the good of those living in His purpose. He knows the plans for your family. Such experiences are meant to
strengthen your faith and to measure how much you trust Him. The peace and joy of the Lord remain, even during troubled times. Nobody knows what will happen this new year, but God knows. Yet, His promise is clear that His plans have always been to prosper you in the time of disaster and not to harm you. The God of Hope and Peace gives you the hope you need to increase your faith. The future is in His hands. One thing is sure; we know that the Day of the Lord is near, Jesus is coming to take us home! Question for reflection: Are you using your time wisely by being alive and active in your spiritual life? How did your faith grow last year, and how do you plan to increase your faith and service to God this year?
“For I know the plans I have for you,” declares the Lord, “plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future.”  JEREMIAH  29:11
