for January 2003
As we bid farewell to the year 2002
and welcome 2003, it is my prayer that each and every one of you
enters this New Year filled with hope, cheer and commitment. I want to thank each of you who have made this past year a
success for the Church. Thanks
so much for your loyal commitment to this Work through your tithes
and offerings. It was
a blessed and joyous day this past September when we paid off the
mortgage for our Church Sanctuary.
It is indeed a tribute to your commitment and faithfulness
these many years.
We have much to do and there are
so few of us. But,
we must not be discouraged because we lack the might and strength
of man, for God is with us.
When much is accomplished by many it is by the strength of
man, when much is accomplished by a few, which has been God’s tradition
for His Church ever since sending out just 11 witnesses to the greatest
truth ever told, the crucifixion and resurrection of our Lord and
II Th 2:14-17
Whereunto he called you by our gospel, to the obtaining of
the glory of our Lord Jesus Christ.
Therefore, brethren, stand fast, and hold the traditions
which ye have been taught, whether by word, or our epistle.
Now our Lord Jesus Christ himself, and God, even our Father,
which hath loved us, and hath given us everlasting consolation and
good hope through grace,
Comfort your hearts, and stablish you in every good word
and work. (KJV)
I commend and thank each and every
one of you for pitching and doing your part, carry your load and
shouldering your responsibility in your calling.
God has brought us together for a purpose. The truths He has revealed to us are founded in the scriptures,
the Word of God, not in any ideas or writings of man. Let us not lose our “pearl of great price”.
Thanks to you who keep the Church
clean and sparkling, green and groomed: thanks to each of you who
work the audio equipment and the audio/video recording; for those
of you who copy and mail out the sermon video and audio tapes for
our Sermon Outreach Mission.
Thanks to you who create and publish the weekly bulletins
and monthly newsletter; thanks for keeping up the Church’s Web Page.
Thanks to you who teach the Adult, Children’s & Youth
Bible CEP Classes; thanks for those who look after the lists, finances
and clerical duties; thanks to you who bring sermons of truth
& beautiful music of praise to our Sabbath Worship Services.
Thanks for all your hard work each year hosting the Festival
of Tabernacles. I know
that you do not serve for recognition or commendation, but rather
for the glory of God & Christ, but I commend and thank each
of you for your unflagging faithfulness.
To God be the Glory!
1 Cor 1:24-31
But unto them which are called, both Jews and Greeks, Christ
the power of God, and the wisdom of God.
Because the foolishness of God is wiser than men; and the
weakness of God is stronger than men.
For ye see your calling, brethren, how that not many wise
men after the flesh, not many mighty, not many noble, are called:
But God hath chosen the foolish things of the world to confound
the wise; and God hath chosen the weak things of the world to confound
the things which are mighty;
28 And base things of the world, and things
which are despised, hath God chosen, yea, and things which are not,
to bring to naught things that are:
That no flesh should glory in his presence
But of him are ye in Christ Jesus, who of God is made unto
us wisdom, and righteousness, and sanctification, and redemption:
according as it is written, He that glorieth, let him glory in the
