“Happy New Year”, Pastor Doug’s Devotional, December 28, 2016

lff-eph-1-17-18Dear Friends,

Farrol and I want to wish each of you a blessed and Happy New Year!!!

It seems like the days go by faster the older we have gotten, yet we know they haven’t. The joy of knowing eternity awaits us all, and it could be today, is motivation to live in a manner our Lord is deserving of.

My prayer for each of us as we enter this new year is the prayer the Apostle Paul prayed for the church at Ephesus . “Lord I pray that the God of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of glory may give each of us a spirit of wisdom and of revelation in the knowledge of Him. I pray that the eyes of our heart may be enlightened so that we may know what is the hope of His calling and what the riches of the glory of His inheritance in the saints and what is the surpassing greatness of His power toward us who believe.”

What a joy it is to live each day for His glory and to look toward Heaven as our eternal home that awaits us as His children.

May we live in light of that glory that awaits us with the passion, commitment and the joy of being a Christ follower!

Happy New Year all,

Doug
