REFLECTIONS AT THE BEGINNING OF A NEW YEAR

******************************************

1.THANK

At the beginning of a New Year we must have a heart of gratitude for all the benefits we have received from the Lord. We must be grateful for the past and realise it is purely the grace and mercy of God that has sustained us so far.

A New Year is an opportunity to make a new start and turn over a new leaf in our lives. We must offer our bodies as a living sacrifice unto the Lord and be transformed by the renewing of our mind .

"Therefore, I urge you, brothers, in view of God’s mercy, to offer your bodies as living sacrifices, holy and pleasing to God—this is your spiritual act of worship.

Do not conform any longer to the pattern of this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind. Then you will be able to test and approve what God’s will is—his good, pleasing and perfect will. "
