From the Pastor's Desk: Renewed Faith & Hope
CBC friends and family,
Greetings in the name of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ.
New Year’s Day is a great opportunity to recommit ourselves and to restore the habit of turning to Christ for all of our daily needs.
Let’s celebrate the start of the New Year with renewed faith and hope. “This is the day the Lord has made; let us rejoice and be glad in it” Psalm 118:24. With the thoughts and remembrance of our journey during the year 2022, let us move forward in hope and rejoice in the blessings of a New Year. While most of us will make personal resolutions, it is my prayer that we remain steadfast in the knowledge that everyday is a blessing from the almighty. With that blessing, we should use everyday to gain a closer relationship with the Lord through our daily devotions. Can you make the commitment to increase your prayer life by five minutes a day?
Let us look forward to new opportunities to explore God’s purpose. As the prophet Jeremiah expounds in the book of Lamentations. “The steadfast love of the Lord never ceases; his mercies never come to an end; they are new every morning” Lamentations 3:22-23. May this New Year bring us all joy and new revelations about the purpose that God has willed in our lives.
Rev. Melvin Thomas Jr.
