IT'S NEW YEAR ISN'T IT

 

Well it is now 2013 and Myself , Helen and Ming, want to wish you God's richest blessings on you and your family.

 

This weekend at our church was very crowded as we had the visit of Teenagers Church.. a part of Family Church that is specifically for those 13-19. So as well as our usual congregation, we had 25+ young people. Some of church members formed a choir, the last time they sang was at our wedding on the 28th October. The teenagers did songs and Drama and their leader gave a gospel message. We nearly ran out of stools.

 

After the service we had a love feast, everyone brought something and boy was their lots. We were divided int 4 groups and there was much to eat, and boy was it eaten with relish. Cooking and cleaning away was done in double quick time.. many hands do make light work as they say.. everyone mucks in.. even leaders cleaning the floor.

 

We had our own prayer meeting at church from 8.30 till 1am on new years eve, 7 of us .Just worshipped/sang and prayed about China and the world and gave God the first fruits of the year. I think it is important that we give God the best and don't give him the left overs as Cain did amen. I want to challenge each believer who reads this to start next new year off with prayer and worshipping God instead of watching TV or firework displays.

 

The new year in china.. is in late January/Early February when the real fun starts with firecrackers and fireworks popping all night and all day.. I must get some earplugs.

 

So we have passed another year, we are on one year closer to the coming of our Lord.. yes folks..Jesus is coming back.

 

Are you ready?

 

It was Ct Studd who said

 

“Two little lines I heard one day,
Traveling along life’s busy way;
Bringing conviction to my heart,
And from my mind would not depart;
Only one life, ’twill soon be past,
Only what’s done for Christ will last.

Only one life, yes only one,
Soon will its fleeting hours be done;
Then, in ‘that day’ my Lord to meet,
And stand before His Judgement seat;
Only one life,’twill soon be past,
Only what’s done for Christ will last.

Only one life, the still small voice,
Gently pleads for a better choice
Bidding me selfish aims to leave,
And to God’s holy will to cleave;
Only one life, ’twill soon be past,
Only what’s done for Christ will last.

Only one life, a few brief years,
Each with its burdens, hopes, and fears;
Each with its clays I must fulfill,
living for self or in His will;
Only one life, ’twill soon be past,
Only what’s done for Christ will last.

When this bright world would tempt me sore,
When Satan would a victory score;
When self would seek to have its way,
Then help me Lord with joy to say;
Only one life, ’twill soon be past,
Only what’s done for Christ will last.

Give me Father, a purpose deep,
In joy or sorrow Thy word to keep;
Faithful and true what e’er the strife,
Pleasing Thee in my daily life;
Only one life, ’twill soon be past,
Only what’s done for Christ will last.

Oh let my love with fervor burn,
And from the world now let me turn;
Living for Thee, and Thee alone,
Bringing Thee pleasure on Thy throne;
Only one life, “twill soon be past,
Only what’s done for Christ will last.

Only one life, yes only one,
Now let me say,”Thy will be done”;
And when at last I’ll hear the call,
I know I’ll say “twas worth it all”;
Only one life,’twill soon be past,
Only what’s done for Christ will last. ”

— extra stanza —

Only one life, ’twill soon be past,
Only what’s done for Christ will last.
And when I am dying, how happy I’ll be,
If the lamp of my life has been burned out for Thee.”

Can i hear an amen?

C.T Studd
