“A New Beginning for All!”
Romans 5:6-9
For when we were still without strength, in due time Christ died for
the ungodly. For scarcely for a righteous man will one die; yet
perhaps for a good man someone would even dare to die. But God
demonstrates His own love toward us, in that while we were still
sinners, Christ died for us. Much more then, having now been
justified by His blood, we shall be saved from wrath through Him.
Have you ever heard someone say, “I wish I could go back and
start again,” or “I wish I could do that all over again so I could do it
differently.” Well, the sad thing is that yesterday is gone and all
that we have done and said is in the past. We cannot change the
past, but we can have a new beginning for 2021. How?
First, for those who are lost and without Christ as Lord and Savior
you can have a new beginning by believing in Jesus, receiving Him as your Lord and Savior and being forgive for all your past sins. He
loved you so much that He died for YOU. “Believe in Jesus, repent
of your sins, and call upon the name of the Lord asking Him to save
you. He will forgive all your sins and give you eternal life by grace
through faith.
If you are a true believer in Christ and yet He seems to be so far
away, guess who moved? It was not Christ, but you. You can have
a new beginning for 2021 through coming back to your Lord, repenting of the sins that have broken your fellowship with Him, and renewing your faith and commitment to Jesus. Remember what John said to us in:
1 John 1:8, 10, 9
“If we say that we have no sin, we deceive ourselves, and the truth
is not in us. If we say that we have not sinned, we make Him a liar,
and His word is not in us. “If we confess our sins, He is faithful and
just to forgive us our sins and to cleanse us from all unrighteous-
Here, then, is the place of our “new beginning” in Christ. Here is
our “new beginning” for 2021. We can begin again with Jesus!!

     What do you think of when you think of “Thanksgiving?”  Most of us think about the fact that it is a holiday when we do not have to  work. We are excited about getting together with our friends and

family to share a time of fellowship, fun, food and joy, (i.e. if the

Covid-19 Virus) permits us to do so.  It is that time to go home again

and renew old friendships and make new ones.  We think about the

turkey, dressing, sweet potatoes, green beans, breads, puddings

and many other dishes to eat. 

     The Psalmist, King David must have been thinking of all the things he could be thankful for when he penned Psalm 103.  In this Psalm

David could not get over all God’s Mercies to him.  Listen to David’s

Words of “Thanksgiving!”

                        Psalm 103:1-5

                        Bless the LORD, O my soul;

                        And all that is within me, bless His holy name!

                        Bless the LORD, O my soul,

                        And forget not all His benefits:

                        WHO forgives all your iniquities,

                        WHO heals all your diseases,

                        WHO redeems your life from destruction,

                        WHO crowns you with lovingkindness

                        and tender mercies,

                        WHO satisfies your mouth with good things,

                        So that your youth is renewed like the eagles.

     King David was filled with “Thanksgiving” and praise to His God for all His blessings and benefits to him.  It is no wonder that David

also penned Psalm 100:4-5

                       Enter into His gates with THANKSGIVING

                       And into His courts with praise.

                       Be thankful to Him, and bless His name.

                       For the LORD is good;

                       His mercy is everlasting,

                       And His truth endures to all generations.

Celebrate Thanksgiving this year in Christ’s Spirit of Gratitude!!

Most people today, even Christians and Pastors do not
see, hear, nor understand what is happening in our world
today with this Coronavirus. This is not just a community
event. This is not just a county event. This is not just a
city wide or country event. This is a worldwide Pandemic
of enormous proportions.

This virus is a God thing!!

Deuteronomy 32:39-42
Now see that I, even I, am He, and there is no God
besides Me; I kill and I heal; Nor is there any who can
deliver from My hand. For I raise My hand to heaven,
and say, “As I live forever, if I whet (sharpen) My glit-
tering sword, and My hand takes hold on judgment,
I will render vengeance to My enemies, and repay those
who hate Me. I will make My arrows drunk with blood,
and My sword shall devour flesh, with the blood of the
slain and the captives, from the heads of the leaders of
the enemy.

As God spoke to the people of Israel through Moses in
the Old Testament so He is speaking to us today.
Through the events of this virus, with thousands dying,
no doubt God is crying out to us to “repent” and return
to Him. To those who are lost He cries out, “Believe and
be saved today!” To those who are saved He cries out
“repent” and turn from your sin today. God hates sin!
God hates all kinds of sin and every sin! However, thank
God that He loves the sinner who will “repent” and turn
and believe now!

Do you and I hear what God is saying?
Is the God of heaven speaking to you through this virus?

Philippians 4:8-9- Finally, brethren, whatever things are true, whatever things are noble, whatever things are just, whatever things are pure, whatever things are lovely, whatever things are of good report, if there is any virtue and if there is anything praiseworthy-meditate on these things.”

What’s on your mind? What are you thinking about? What are you meditating on? When the Apostle Paul wrote his letter to the Church at Philippi he encouraged them by admonishing them to “be anxious for nothing”, but Paul went further by sharing with them concerning things they should be thinking about.
If we are to have the peace of God our minds must be on the right things! “Bringing every thought into captivity to obedience of Christ.”(2 Corinthians 10:5).


NO WAY OUT! -- Or is there?

Sometimes we let our surrounding circumstances get the best of us. We feel as though there is no end to a bad situation. We have no way out!
Yet, through all of these things, we can rejoice in the Lord. He is our WAY!

The devil has come to steal, kill and destroy. God has come to set us free of fear, to give us a joyful satisfying life.
The joy of the Lord is our strength.

Dear youth,
We want you each to keep this close to you heart and mind.-- God is always in control. He gives you what you need. --

Christ, our Passover Lamb, has been sacrificed for us.
1 Cor. 5:7

At the beginning of John's Gospel, John the Baptist introduced Jesus by calling him the "Lamb of God". John presented Jesus as the Passover lamb whose death marks the central event of the Passover season. In the first century, Jews came to Jerusalem each year to celebrate the Passover and to reread the the story of the Exodus. When Israel was being rescued from Egypt, the blood of a lamb was spread on the doorposts of each Jewish home in Egypt and saved those inside from death. Jews who came to Jerusalem to celebrate the Passover needed to supply a perfect young lamb for the sacrifice. The animal could not be diseased or have broken bones.

Jesus used his final Passover meal to show that his sacrificial death would give new meaning to the festival. In John, the cross became an altar where Christ, the Passover lamb, was slain. Jesus' legs were not broken, fulfilling a Passover rule. Blood ran freely from his wound, showing that his life was being exchanged for others. Just as a lamb died to save the lives of Jewish families at the Passover in Egypt, so,too, the death of the Son of God on the cross serves to bring salvation to the world.

He carried our sins in his body on the cross....By his wounds you are healed. 1 Peter 2:24

“Praying Like Daniel”

Daniel 9:15-19

And now, O Lord our God, who brought Your people out of the land of Egypt with a mighty hand, and made Yourself a name, as it is this day---we have sinned, we have done wickedly! O Lord, according to all Your righteousness, I pray, let Your anger and Your fury be turned away from Your city Jerusalem, Your holy mountain; because for our sins, and for the iniquities of our fathers, Jerusalem and Your people are a reproach to all those around us. Now therefore, our God, hear the prayer of Your servant, and his supplications, and for the Lord’s sake cause Your face to shine on Your sanctuary, which is desolate. O my God, incline Your ear and hear; open Your eyes and see our desolation, and the city which is called by Your name; for we do not present our supplications before You because of our righteous deeds, but because of Your great mercies. O Lord, hear! O Lord, forgive! O Lord, listen and act! Do not delay for Your own sake, my God, for Your city and Your people are called by Your name.” Amen!
