Strengthen and Encourage the Brethren 01/03/16

This week’s scripture is from Isaiah:

Jesus Christ risen“Behold, I will do a new thing; now it shall spring forth…. I will even make a way in the wilderness, and rivers in the desert.”     (Isaiah 43:19)

God makes everything new; everything is new through Christ Jesus. Let us bow down in repentance and thanksgiving, for then we are made new in Christ. We become a new person through Jesus, for in Him and through Him all creation trembles and has its being, for He made us and He is with us. He will make a path for us where there is no path, and He will take us through the wilderness of our own heart.

In the places where we are dry, where our life is like a desert, He will bring forth waters of life and restore all that is dead within us, for He will not snap a dry twig but He will bring it to leaf again and to life. Let us humble ourselves before God and see what He will do to make us new again, for He loves us and He is for us and not against us. Come, let us bow our hearts before the Lord and let Him make us new in Christ again.

May repentance and gratitude pour forth from your heart and lips as you seek the Lord.
