Precious and Invaluable!

What we have been Given?

This a great time of the year to reflect on what God has done for us, between the Easter resurrection, the Ascension of Jesus and the coming of the Holy Spirit to those first believers gathered in Jerusalem for Pentecost!

We must consider that faith we have to believe the invisible and the impossible has been imparted to us through the ‘Good Works of Jesus and that we also have our belief which is invaluable more than anything this world can give to us.

Jesus said it to Satan during His time of temptation in the wilderness by Satan and this was written for us to in the society that we live in and face today. We must hold on and maintain what we have, while also sharing the love of Jesus that is in our hearts will all and those less fortunate in the world?

HAPPY NEW YEAR.

Looking Foward.

That is part of what every New Year is about, we have a time to reflect on the past year between Christmas and the New Year but now we are hoping for better things!

The bible always manintains that emphasis of looking forward to Jesus’ return and our going home to be with the Master. We are warned not to dwell on the past, but race to the futures.

Luke 9:62,  Phillipians 3:12,  Hebrews 11:16,  2 Peter 3:12.

Yule.

Winter Celebrations.

Now enveloped into the New Year celebrations, but still marked by many northern-European countries from the 31st December to 3rd January each year with slightly diffrent names.

Russia calls it the winter frost and this is as close to the Santa tradition or their father frost arriving with childrens gifts, meanwhile the rest of.Europe has left us the one last hint of the Yule log Christmas cake.

Different religions and calanders all have there own New Years, but they help us to reflect on the year past and all that has occured in it, good and bad. Sometimes this is also good to reflect and consider all the good things that Jesus has done for us, even since the day we were saved.

Psalm 141:5,  Ecclesiastes 3:6,  Acts 10:34,  1 Peter 4:14.

Happy New Year.

‘A time to Reflect.

This where we go wrong with any kind of Rememberance, we forget to reflect on the day. Reflectio is a great thing to do for anthing, because it allows us to see our mistakes and learn not to do them again?

Many armies do not reflect, because they do not want to destroy or reveal their failures. In all wars soldiers of any conflict are left scarred mentaly, without help. We hear and see what seems to be help, but this is usually for certain ranks.

War also leaves victums and many accusations, so it is better to talk afterwards to try an resolve things. Meanwhile the bible has much to say on the matter of remembering, so let us reflect on His words to help us push on.

Job 4:3,  14:13,   Psalm 25:7,   37:25,    Matthew 19:27,   Mark 14:9,   Luke 17:32,   John 15:28,  Hebrews 10:17.
