Goal for the New Year



Goal for the New Year


F is for FORGIVENESS

Ephesians‬ ‭1:7‬a

[7] In him we have redemption through his blood, the forgiveness of sins...


A is for AVAILABLE

‭‭John‬ ‭3:16‬

[16] For God so loved the world that he gave his one and only Son, that whoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life.


I is for IMPOSSIBLE to save ourselves

Romans‬ ‭3:23‬

[23] for all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God.


‭‭Ephesians‬ ‭2:8‭-‬9‬

[8] For it is by grace you have been saved, through faith—and this is not from yourselves, it is the gift of God— [9] not by works, so that no one can boast. 


T is for TURN

‭‭Romans‬ ‭10:9‬

[9] If you declare with your mouth, “Jesus is Lord,” and believe in your heart that God raised him from the dead, you will be saved.


H is for Heaven

Here:

‭‭John‬ ‭10:10‬b

[10] ... I [Jesus] have come that they may have life, and have it to the full.


Hereafter:

‭‭John‬ ‭14:3‬

[3] And if I go and prepare a place for you, I will come back and take you to be with me that you also may be where I am. 


“Therefore, since we are surrounded by such a great cloud of witnesses, let us throw off everything that hinders and the sin that so easily entangles, and let us run with perseverance the race marked out for us. Let us fix our eyes on Jesus, the author and perfector of our faith, who for the joy set before Him endured the cross, scorning its shame, and sat down at the right hand of the throne of God.”

(Hebrews 12: 1, 2)


“Race marked out for us”


“Witnesses”


Run with “perseverance


“Fix your eyes on Jesus”


“Joy set before Him”


[3] Praise be to the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ! In his great mercy he has given us new birth into a living hope through the resurrection of Jesus Christ from the dead, [4] and into an inheritance that can never perish, spoil or fade. This inheritance is kept in heaven for you, [5] who through faith are shielded by God’s power until the coming of the salvation that is ready to be revealed in the last time. [6] In all this you greatly rejoice, though now for a little while you may have had to suffer grief in all kinds of trials. [7] These have come so that the proven genuineness of your faith—of greater worth than gold, which perishes even though refined by fire—may result in praise, glory and honor when Jesus Christ is revealed. [8] Though you have not seen him, you love him; and even though you do not see him now, you believe in him and are filled with an inexpressible and glorious joy, [9] for you are receiving the end result of your faith, the salvation of your souls.

(1 Peter‬ ‭1:3‭-‬9)


v. 5 “Your attitude should be the same as that of Christ Jesus: v. 6 Who, being in very nature God, did not consider equality with God something to be grasped, v. 7 but made himself nothing, taking the very nature of a servant, being made in human likeness. v. 8 And being found in appearance as a man, he humbled himself and became obedient to death – even death on a cross.”

(Philippians 2:5 – 8)


“scorning its shame”


Another Acronym for FAITH:

Forsaking

All

I

Trust 

Him


I need thy presence every passing hour.

What but thy grace can foil the tempter's power?

Who like thyself my guide and strength can be?

Through cloud and sunshine, O abide with me.


Senior Version of "Jesus Loves Me"

Jesus loves me, this I know

Though my hair is white as snow

Though my sight is growing dim,

Still He bids me trust in Him.


REFRAIN:

Yes, Jesus loves me

Yes, Jesus loves me

Yes, Jesus loves me

The Bible tells me so!


Though my steps are oh, so slow,

With my hand in His I'll go,

On through life, let come what may

He'll be there to lead the way.


REFRAIN


When the nights are dark and long,

In my heart He puts a song

Telling me in words so clear,

"Have no fear, for I am near."


REFRAIN
