The Start of a new year Two Thousand and Ten

Sometimes just for the enjoyment of music I guess, click here

We begin another year. Its a new beginning by the calendar date. We can build on the pasted and remember the future is here, as they say its the first day of the rest of your life. So start today and make this day a day to be proud of.

While I am here, here is a quote:

  • “The gospel as recorded in Scripture is as broad as creation. Since the church has been sent to make known this good news in all of life, in actions and in words, the church’s mission is, likewise, as broad as creation.”
    - Mike Goheen and Craig Bartholomew

The Gospel is the good news of Jesus Christ. Its more than just Matthew 1:1, but John 1:1 AND Acts 1:1 and Philippians 1:1 and Romans 1:1-5 too.

Remember its not about physical beauty that really counts, its the inward beauty you have with the Lord Jesus Christ. Really.
