As we stand at the threshold of a New Year, I have had a flood of memories of other New Year celebrations. As I ponder the condition of our world as we step off into 2016, I pause to reflect on messages the Lord gave over the years and I am humbled to realize how timely His Word is in every age and every circumstance.
The following is a message I preached in Cottage Grove ten years ago. As I mentioned in my note to you about the future of The Jude 3 Fellowship, and this site. I plan to begin an archive of sermons as well as linking to the messages of other members of the fellowship.
As you listen, why not pray that The Holy Spirit will make specific applications in your life.
The newness promised to us in the Bible is not mere novelty, or refurbishment. No it s entirely new… ‘fresh oil’ as the Psalmist put it. Be assured, you and I will face new trials and new difficulties in the year to come. A surely as I now that is true I also know the steadfast love of the Lord never ceases… His mercies are new every morning” (and I might I add….every New Year as well)
Enjoy the sermon and let’s start this next year with resolutions like the ones you will hear about in this message
