Anticipation

Welcome to 2017!

Just as John the Baptist came to prepare the way of the Lord, we are called to prepare the way for the next coming of Jesus. It is possible that some of us are not ready. Some might not even know what we are supposed to be ready for! If any have resisted making a firm decision to make Jesus Savior and Lord, this is the time to take that step.

Some say, “Someday I’ll become a follower.” What makes them think that someday they will follow Him, if they won’t do so today? If they can walk away from the message of the gospel this day, what chance is there they will respond to that message any other day?

Hebrews 3:15 says, “Today, if you hear his voice, do not harden your hearts.”  Today may be your day. Step into the new year with fresh vision, renewed strength and assurance of your eternity!

Songs we’re singing this week:

8:00 a.m. — “Joy to the World” and “Come, We That Love the Lord”

10:30 a.m. — “Soul On Fire”, “Your Name Is Greatly to Be Praised” and “Holy Spirit”
