Worthy Brief - 1/2/2020

Worthy News Brief - January 2, 2019

Friend, reality check!

Phillipians 3:13-15 Brethren, I count not myself to have apprehended: but this one thing I do, forgetting those things which are behind, and reaching forth unto those things which are before, I press toward the mark for the prize of the high calling of God in Christ Jesus. Let us therefore, as many as be perfect, be thus minded: and if in any thing ye be otherwise minded, God shall reveal even this unto you.

New Year's Eve celebrations have come and gone. Now the reality is settling in -- it's 2020 and we've entered into a new decade!! Some of us are wondering where in the world the time went... the Lord knows I am.

A famous preacher, Henry Ward Beecher once said: "We have passed through one more year. One more long stage in the journey of life, with its ascents and descents and dust and mud and rocks and thorns and burdens that wear the shoulders, is done. The old year is dead. Roll it away. Let it go. God, in His providence, has brought us out of it. It is gone; . . . its evil is gone; its good remains. The evil has perished, and the good survives."

I say amen to that -- how 'bout you?

Friend, let's be sure to confess the sins of 2019 today. Roll them away. Let them go. Rest assured in the fact they are forgiven so we can confidently look towards the future. Today is the beginning of a fresh new decade. Let's press forward to do exciting and new things for the Lord --- 'cause there's sooooo much work to be done!!

Your family in the Lord with much agape love,

George, Baht Rivka, Elianna & Obadiah
Kansas City, Missouri
