Just a quick post to wish everybody a blessed 2017! Lord willing, the regularly scheduled monthly blog posts will begin after the first of the year in January 2017. Thanks to each of you for reading, following, and sharing as we spread the Gospel of our Lord, Jesus Christ. Let us dedicate the new year to Him and for His glory as we continue to be a light in a dark world. Ask the Lord to renew your zeal for this upcoming year!
I encourage you to read the following scriptures on newness and renewal for the new year!
