We’ve got to start 2016 somewhere. Why not go back to the very beginning?
If we go to the beginning, we find that we must start with GOD the Father, Jesus Christ the Son and the Holy Ghost Spirit.
Jesus is the beginning
1 In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God.
2 The same was in the beginning with God.
3 All things were made by him; and without him was not any thing made that was made.
4 In him was life; and the life was the light of men.
5 And the light shineth in darkness; and the darkness comprehended it not.
In the Beginning GOD created
Genesis 1:1 In the beginning God created the heaven and the earth.
Understanding the LORD and reverencing HIM is the beginning of wisdom
Psalms 111:10 The fear of the LORD is the beginning of wisdom: a good understanding have all they that do his commandments: his praise endureth for ever.
Proverbs 1:7 The fear of the LORD is the beginning of knowledge: but fools despise wisdom and instruction.
We are NEW in Christ
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.
From the Beginning, we are to love one another
2 John 1:5-6 5 And now I beseech thee, lady, not as though I wrote a new commandment unto thee, but that which we had from the beginning, that we love one another.
6 And this is love, that we walk after his commandments. This is the commandment, That, as ye have heard from the beginning, ye should walk in it.
