Beloved in Christ,
A wonderful and gracious new year to you and your loved ones. By the special grace of the living God, we made it into 2013. How merciful and kind The Lord God is to us!But I want you to know that there is a reason for this. The reason can be found in this wonderful admonition in the scriptures:
Phil 1:21: For to live is Christ and to die is gain.
Acts 17:28: For in Him we live and move and have our being.
Gal 2:20: I no longer live but Christ lives in me.
Romans 6:10: the life he lives, he lives to God.
Psalm118:17: I will not die but live and will proclaim what The Lord has done!
