Bible Verse of the Day for Monday

“But now, this is what the Lord says – he who created you, O Jacob, he who formed you , O Israel: ‘Fear not, for I have redeemed you; I have summoned you by name; you are mine. When you pass through the waters, I will be with you; and when you pass through the rivers, they will not sweep over you.

For I am the Lord, your God, the Holy One of Israel, your Savior, …Forget the former things, do not dwell on the past.  See, I am doing a new thing! Now it springs up; do you not perceive it? I am making a way in the desert and streams in the wasteland.'”

Merry Christmas!

Happy birthday, Jesus, and Merry Christmas to all!

Merry Christmas to all of you!  As we start a new year, I wanted to share an affirmation of faith across the globe – please pass this on!

I believe that God, the Creator and Lord of this universe, knows and cares for every living person.

I believe that He makes Himself real to us today

through the Scripture,

through our Savior, Jesus Christ,

and through the lives of other persons.

I believe that God’s Spirit is available every moment,

to convict me of my sinful, selfish ways and

to enable me to rise above myself into a Christ-like life.

I believe that God has a mission for me,

to minister in His name and

to share His love and blessings with His needy

children of my own community and of every race and nation.

I believe that as I give to Him my life,

my love, my offerings, and my talents,

he will bring rich meaning into my life

and will use me to help others to a better life in Christ.  Amen
