It’s a new year!
How do you want to start it?
We had a great day at church yesterday. We began the first Sunday of the new year by observing the Lord’s Supper.
Wow! Stop for a moment and think (if you are born again) about how Jesus has delivered you from the cruel bonds of sin, and how He has set you free.
That is why His body was broken. That is why His blood was spilled.
It was for you and me.

What are you really thankful for?
Please tell me in the comments section.
Are you thankful enough to sing unto the Lord and declare His glory to the heathen, His marvelous works to all nations?
This new year, how about reading the following passage and then meditating on each part of it, in prayer? Yes, this is a direct challenge to you and me to start the new year off with a commitment to seek God’s Face and His presence.
I have to go back to work today. Chances are, some of you do, as well. That means we will be around people, other than our family or close friends.
* bold, * be brave, * allow the joy of the Lord to be our strength, * and be filled with the Spirit.
Are you ready for the passage to ponder? Here we go…
1 Chronicles 16:23-29, “Sing unto the LORD, all the earth; shew forth from day to day his salvation. Declare his glory among the heathen; his marvellous works among all nations. For great is the LORD, and greatly to be praised: he also is to be feared above all gods. For all the gods of the people are idols: but the LORD made the heavens. Glory and honour are in his presence; strength and gladness are in his place. Give unto the LORD, ye kindreds of the people, give unto the LORD glory and strength. Give unto the LORD the glory due unto his name: bring an offering, and come before him: worship the LORD in the beauty of holiness“.
Start your prayer time by asking the Holy Spirit to lead you in your prayer. Wait for Him. Once you get started, you may want to say something like, “O Lord, I am so glad You are…” and finish with ideas from this passage.
He is waiting for us.
Great things are going to happen in 2015!
What does God have for you…just around the corner?
So here is the advertisement; Our domain name cost a little bit each year and EKM would like to be able to provide physical ministry materials to our readers some day. This too will cost a little money.
Hence the EKM Amazon store.
Anything you purchase from Amazon through the EKM site helps to fund EKM Ministries. It does not cost any more than shopping directly through Amazon and if you are a Prime member, nothing changes. It simply gives EKM Ministries a small “finders fee”.
You are not limited to what is on the EKM store site. If you want to purchase an electronic mouse trap, then by all means, purchase an electronic mouse trap.
Once at our store, click the “Powered by Amazon” button in the top right bar and you will be taken directly to Amazon. Through here, EKM will still get credit.
Thank you so much for your support and remember to do your Amazon shopping through this EKM Amazon Store. I just wouldn’t recommend an electronic mouse trap as a gift.
Lord bless you and yours!
