HAPPY NEW YEAR
Many people make New Year resolutions. Whatever resolutions we may make, they are only good if we keep them. We can learn from the Scripture several things to apply in our lives during this coming year to make us stronger Christians. Steadfastness is essential for us to have spiritual victories in the New Year.
1. Committed in prayer to God.
2. Continuous watching for the enemy.
3. Confident in the presence of God.
4. Continued in the work of God.
5. Courage in the face of danger.
Operation Christmas Child is one of the great ministries that have reached children around the world. We are thankful that our church has been part of this outreach. We have already started working on the shoe boxes for 2018. In 2017, our church fixed 1,800 boxes. We are praying that the Lord will provide the funds for us to prepare even more boxes. We would like to have the largest number of shoe boxes ever. We know the children enjoy their school supplies and gifts, but it is our prayer that many of these children will be saved. We have people who are willing to fix the shoe boxes as the Lord provides the money. I am thankful for those who labor so children and their families may have the privilege of hearing the gospel. Please pray for this worthy project that God will be glorified.
