New Year 2017

posted Jan 4, 2017, 11:06 AM by Beautiful Zion

     Now that 2016 is in the rear view mirror of life, each passing day gets further in the artifacts of history.  What was done in the past is now history; there is nothing you can change.  With that being said, it is time to move forward with our life; for “this is the day the Lord has made I will rejoice and be glad in it.”  With each day God allows us to live, we should do so with vigor and giving God all the glory, honor and praise that He so rightfully deserves.  The year 2017 should be the year you give your life to Christ. If you don’t have a relationship with Him, if you are in a right relationship, make it your business to improve by being the best person and Christian possible.   

     Our church theme for this year is “Moving forward in Christ.” How can we do that, according to the Word of God, “I press toward the goal for the prize of the upward call of God in Christ Jesus.”  Our ultimate goal is eternal life with Jesus; therefore we must continue to pray, fast, study, live an acceptable life style before God, and our fellow man.  Therefore our prayer should be Lord help me to be better than I was on yesterday.  One day at a time is how we must live; tomorrow is not promised to us.  2017 is the year of the church; we will prosper in every aspect of our life as long as GOD is leading.  The Lord is my Shepherd and where He leads me I will follow.

     In 2017 we are looking forward to the challenges, and victories in Christ, for we are more than over comers!
