CONSIDERING A NEW YEARS CELEBRATION
1 Corinthians 10:31 Whether therefore ye eat, or drink, or whatsoever ye do, do all to the glory of God.
I would like to encourage you today as you make plans for how you will celebrate the new year to make for sure that it brings Glory to God. For me that decision is somewhat a no brainer. We have services tonight at our church. At 6 p.m. we meet for prayer and are seeking God for a new campus for our church and ministry. At 6:30 we will be worshipping our Lord in singing. As the service continues I am anxiously awaiting the time to share what the Lord has put on my heart for the theme of the new year. When we get into our automobiles to go home our conscience will be clear that we have honored the God of Heaven with our life! Amen and Amen.
On the other hand many of you are making plans now to go to questionable places at best. Some are going to go dancing and drinking. Is that the best things for you? Alcohol alters the way you think and react. Is this a good thing to be involved in? Some will go dancing. As you dance others will be there drinking or smoking dope among other things and will begin to act in ways that absolutely do not honor God at all. Married couples will begin to dance with other wives and husbands. This doesn't even make sense? Why would we even desire to be involved in these types of activities. Still yet others will go to a movie and then go out for some late night drinks. Is this the way you want to dedicate your new year? Others will hang out and listen to people continually take the name of God in vain and laugh along with them as they mock our God! REALLY???
God created each of us with a will. We have the ability to make a good decision right now. Why not decide to honor God with your life instead of going to some questionable party and be tempted to do something that causes tragic results!
May the God of Heaven help us to glorify Him with our lives, this day and everyday in 2015!!!
