"Living in the New Year!"

“Living in the New Year!” So I say, walk by the Spirit, and you will not gratify the desires of the flesh. Since we live by the Spirit, let us keep in step with the Spirit. Galatians 5:16, 25 We are embarking upon a brand NEW year. Saying ‘good-bye’ to the OLD one and welcoming the NEW. It is the tradition of many to make resolutions for a NEW BEGINNING, hoping that the NEW YEAR will be BETTER than the OLD Year. But, sad to say, not too many keep those resolutions, and life in the NEW YEAR is not any better. However, there is a way to live each NEW day in the New Year and to, in the long run, make life better for you. The Apostle Paul, told this to the believers in Galatia. He said if they ‘walk by the Spirit,’ they ‘will not gratify the desires of the flesh.’ Gratifying the desires of the flesh, most of the time brings; heartache, misery, and despair. The acts of the flesh, such as, idolatry, hatred, discord, jealousy, selfish ambition, envy and the likes thereof, brings about heartache, misery, and despair, and those who live, exemplifying those acts of the flesh will NOT inherit the kingdom of God. In essence, they have NO HOPE! But Paul tells the Galatian Believers, that since they ‘live by the Spirit’, they should ‘keep in step with the Spirit’. And in order to LIVE and KEEP IN STEP with the Spirit, and to exemplify the fruit of the Spirit, love, joy, peace, forbearance, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness and self-control, you MUST have the Spirit abiding in you. There is ONLY ONE WAY to have the Spirit in you, and that is by coming to God; CONFESSING your sins to Him asking Him for His FORGIVENESS, BELIEVING, with ALL your HEART, that Jesus died for YOU, and is ALIVE in Heaven, making intercession for you, before God, then ACCEPT His gift of SALVATION, and begin a NEW YEAR, leaving the OLD year and your OLD sinful life behind, never again to go BACK, but to press forward into a BRAND NEW YEAR and a BRAND NEW FUTURE that is filled with FAITH, HOPE and LOVE. Do it NOW, while you still can. He’s waiting and coming SOON!!! Have A SAFE and HAPPY NEW YEAR!!!
