Happy New Year from a fellow follower of Jesus…

Happy New Year - Christian

At the beginning of this New Year part of my Bible reading included Romans 1:1-7. In that passage Apostle Paul speaks of “the gospel” (the message that brings “good news” about Jesus Christ). In it Paul declares that “gospel” includes me, a gentile. For that I am eternally grateful! That message, and the Person behind that message, transformed my life! He has made my life worth living and given me forgiveness and eternal life! I’m so glad I have been called “to belong to Jesus Christ!” I owe Him my all! I intend to live for Him with all my heart in 2015 (and beyond). Should He return this year, I’m ready!!

Here’s what I read and Apostle Paul declared…

“From Paul, a slave of Christ Jesus, called to be an apostle, set apart for the gospel of God. This gospel He promised beforehand through his prophets in the Holy Scriptures, concerning his Son who was a descendant of David with reference to the flesh, and who was appointed the ‘Son-of-God-in-power’ according to the Holy Spirit by His resurrection from the dead, Jesus Christ our Lord. Through Him we have received grace and our apostleship TO BRING ABOUT THE OBEDIENCE OF FAITH AMONG ALL THE GENTILES on behalf of his name. YOU ALSO ARE AMONG THEM, CALLED TO BELONG TO JESUS CHRIST.” (Romans 1:1–6 NET)
