Foundations of the Faith:
THE LAW OF GOD
Obedience to the Law -
The Lord asks that we keep His commandments not only in but in attitude as well--an attitude of love, of preferring others above ourselves.
"The commandments. 'Do not commit adultery; do not murder; do not steal; do not desire what belongs to someone these, and any others are summed up in the one command, 'Love your neighbor as you love yourself'" (Romans 13:9).
"For our love for God means that we obey his commands. And his commands are not too hard for us" (I John 5:3). We already know that keeping commandments won't save us. We are saved by grace through faith in Jesus Christ. Ephesians 2:8-9 confirms it! "For it is by God's grace that you have been saved through faith. It is not the result of your own efforts, but God's gift, so that no one can boast about it."
However, we do obey the Lord because as His children we want above all else to please Him. If we do break one of His commandments, we should immediately ask God to forgive and cleanse us from sins.
"I am writing this to you, my so that you will not sin; but if anyone sin, we have someone who pleads with the Father on our behalf--Jesus Christ, the righteous one. And Christ himself is the means by which our sins are forgiven, and not our sins only, but the sins of everyone (1 John 2:1-2)."
Have you sometimes felt weak and maybe even disobedient? The Lord Jesus can give you the help and strength that you need. Would you like to bow your head and ask for His help right now?
Heavenly Father, I ask forgiveness for failing to love You as I should. Help me not to sin and disobey You when I know better.
Lord, I want to love You and defend Your Name even more than I would love and defend my own family. Give me Your strength, I because I ask in the name of Jesus who gave His life for me.

Doing the Impossible
"For with God, nothing will be impossible."— Luke 1:37
My friend, let me instruct you When you are having a conversation with God, there are some words you just do not use. One of them is “impossible;” another one is “incredible.” Those words are not even in God’s dictionary. The Queen in Lewis Carroll’s Alice in Wonderland proclaimed that she could think of at least six impossible things before breakfast. She is not exactly a hero, but it is a great exercise to think of the impossible. Sometimes a lofty thought comes to mind; for example, “I think I would like to build a school.” Right at its heel comes the thought, “That’s impossible—you can’t do that.” Usually, that is the end of our impossible thought. But we serve a God with whom nothing is impossible. Now, at the beginning of a new year, imagine some great goal or project you would like to see happen. Bearing in mind, it should be primarily for God’s glory and others’ good. Place that goal before the Lord and see what happens.
Question to ponder: Do you have an “impossible” dream?

Happy New Year!
"I will instruct you and teach you in the way you should go; I will counsel you and watch over you." Psalm 32:8
The prospect of a new year could be both disquieting and exciting. When we reflect on the future, it is a rather common mistake to allow the events of the past to cloud our vision. International crises, financial setbacks, droughts, floods, as well as personal problems and disappointments tend to dictate our pattern of thought when we ponder the possible consequences for us.
Today, more so than ever before, the moment has come to place your unwavering trust in the omniscience of God. He truly cares about you and He loves you profoundly: But because of His great love for us, God, who is rich in mercy, made us alive with Christ (Eph. 2:4).
Everyone has a need for love: true, profound, and sincere love.
Mankind lost this love due to the Fall.
Therefore, you will have to rediscover, without delay, the fact that in this loveless world there is still Somebody who has a special interest in you: a God in heaven who is Love and who loves you tenderly.Believe in the promises of Jesus and approach the new year in the presence of the living Christ. He will guide you through the labyrinth of life because He knows what is best for you. Your duty lies in obeying Him. Then your anxiety will be replaced with self-awareness born of the love of God!
