1 Timothy 1
According to the glorious gospel of the blessed God, which was committed to my trust.
TODAY marks the end of 2015 and it also marks the end of our Esther fast. I want to commend all of you for your efforts in the fast.
We also thank those of you that have been faithful in this Bible reading page. With your consistency, you have encouraged many, inspired many and spured others on to good works. May your reward never fail.
Remember to be in church today to welcome the New Year. It is a special gift from God to you. Receive it from Him with gratitude.
From tomorrow we will begin reading from the book of Mathew and proceed till the end. It will be my joy to lead you on this journey, together with Rev. Gloria. We will cover greater grounds this coming year than in the past. Alleluia!
In our text today, Paul says that the gospel was committed to his trust. As we study his life, we are challenged by his utmost sense of responsibility. He owned the gospel. To him, he was The Preacher. He believed that if he didn't preach it, it will not be preached.
Now Paul is dead, and the same gospel has been committed to us. Now it must become ours. We must own it. We can not think others are preaching it. Yes they are. But that must not be our mindset.
You must own this gospel. I can hardly think of anything other than this gospel.
Let your life be seeded for the gospel. God will reward you greatly for it.
I want to bless you with the blessing of My God!
May My God Bless you and keep you.
May He cause His face to shine upon you and be gracious to you.
May He lift up His countenance upon you and give you Peace. Alleluia!
May the coming year bring fulfillment to your heart desires.
May those that look down upon you, look up to you.
May you remain the head and not the tail.
May you be above only and never beneath.
May My God who called me to take His gospel to the world, visit you in a special way in the coming year!
May He take away shame from you!
May He make you a wonder!
God bless you richly!
Goodbye to 2015 and welcome 2016!
God bless you again and again. Amen!
