Beloved in Christ Jesus, today is the seventh day we entered the year 2018. When we recall what had happened in 2017, it is obvious that the Lord has been so good to us. We must give thanks to God for so many things. I believe many of us have experienced physical and spiritual blessings and success in every situation in our faith journey in 2017. For some people, however, the year 2017 was a year full of challenges. Some may had experienced sickness, trouble, or tragedy such as losing someone they loved so dearly. Yet, when we look back we are marveled at how we went through these things victoriously. Brothers and sisters, these victories are not coincidental or because of our abilities, but because of the grace of God. The Apostle Paul gave his testimony and encouragement to the church at Phillippi, “I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me.” Philippians 4:13
Beloved of Christ Jesus, let us put the Lord Jesus as the Good Shepherd in our lives and our families that He continues to guide us victoriously throughout 2018 until His second coming into this world.
“Happy New Year 2018 and God Bless”
