Romans 5:8 But God demonstrates his own love for us in this: While we were still sinners, Christ died for us.
Okay, now that 2017 has arrived. The question I pose to you today is this.
Are you still in the same old mindset that you will be making drastic changes in your life but it won’t be today but tomorrow?
Remember that tomorrow is not promise to any of us.
But God is the One with the power to decide how long we shall live.
Okay, you made New Year’s resolutions for this year.
Is this but yet another one of your traditions that within a period of seconds, minutes, hours or weeks, they are discarded yet again?
My friends, what we have neglected is that the future is “today”.
For me and every day that God gives me to live on this earth. I am going to do something that produces fruit. And the fruit that I speak about is doing something for someone else by placing my needs and wants on the back-burner.
How does one go about doing what seems such a big task?
Start at this moment to pray for others and you will see and feel the difference in your life.
But God! Can do the impossible for all of us.
Have no time?

Have no strength?

Have no knowledge?

Have no resources?
