Greetings in the Lord !



Happy New Year and welcome to the Bible Reading Adventure! In the beginning, first and foremost, God: who was, who is, and evermore will be. Before a house is built, the foundation is laid. Before a journey begins, plans must be in place. Before we can understand life, we need to understand God. The Bible provides the basis for that understanding, and Genesis is where it all begins. We are delighted that you will be joining us as we begin our fifth three-year voyage through the Bible. May God richly bless you with wisdom and insight as you faithfully read His “Message” to us.



Commands of Christ – Repent

Jesus said, “If you love me, keep my commands.” John 14:15. This month, we reflect on Jesus’ “command” found in Matthew 4:17, “From that time Jesus began to preach, and to say, Repent: for the kingdom of heaven is at hand.”



Some of you may recall school days when the chalkboard was front and center in each classroom. Usually, the teacher would appoint a student as the eraser monitor, with the responsibility of making sure the chalkboard was clean before class starts each day. This would allow the teacher to present the new day’s lesson on the chalkboard. In much the same way, this first command of Christ is for us to clean the chalkboard of our lives, to erase all the old stuff, so that Christ can begin a new teaching in us. Let us reflect this month, on the love and grace of God that enable us to experience a newness of life through our willingness to first go before the Lord in sincere repentance. God bless and Happy New Year!
