Celebrate New Years Eve

December 31, 2016

Trying to find an image for New Years Eve was an eye opener. Most all of the pictures were of drinking and partying. These kind of images show what our society has become. 

As Christians our prayer for you is that you will spend tonight in a way that would please the Lord. Not with alcohol,  but with clean fun and fellowship. You will be safer and not wake up with a headache in the morning.

In time past we always had a party at church. Starting in the early evening, there would be singing, games, food maybe a Christian movie and then at midnight we would begin the New Year with prayer. Sometimes we would then gather around the piano and sing for several more hours, enjoying the fellowship and brining honor to God.

So this evening have a safe Happy New Year’s Eve and may God bring blessings to you in 2017.

Ephesians 5:18 And be not drunk with wine, wherein is excess; but be filled with the Spirit;

New Years Eve

Many people will be celebrating New Years Eve tonight. Some will party, get drunk, and some will even die thinking they are having a good time.

Christians celebrate in different ways. One family has a bonfire every year, burns their Christmas tree and invites friends for food and fellowship.

I think celebrating at the church is not done much anymore, but some fondest memories are when people used to go to church, sing, eat, and pray at midnight for a safe, happy and prosperous new year.

However you choose to spend this evening, a good idea would be to stop and pray. Start your new year in the best way possible with joy. Jesus first, Others second and You last. That will bring you a truly happy New Year.

John 13:34  A new commandment I give unto you, That ye love one another; as I have loved you, that ye also love one another.

New Years Eve

December 31, 2014

2014 is almost over. Today is New Years Eve. Many people will be out partying. There will be accidents, fights and confusion for some who think they are having a good time, only to wake up in the morning with a headache and regrets.
There are some people who are good moral folks, who truly want to turn over a new leaf, as the expression goes, but will find that they will fall back into their same old life in just a few days or weeks.
Then there is the Christian, who knows that a new life can only begin with asking JESUS to forgive their sin, come into their heart and make their life new. CHRISTIANS look forward to 2015 with a different outlook. They know that whatever happens in the New Year, they have a friend, companion and Holy Spirit in them that helps them walk in newness of life.
If you are in the first or second group but would like a true new beginning, ask Jesus to save you today.
Our prayer for all is that you will have a safe and Happy New Years Eve and that 2015 will be blessed.

2 Corinthians 5:17
Therefore if any man be in Christ, he is a new creature:old things are passed away; behold, all things are become new.
