New Life for a New Year

This is the time of year when people make New Year's resolutions. They often see a need—something that needs to change—and they purpose to accomplish it this year. Some will fulfill their goals while others fail or quit before the month is over. But what Jesus offers is that which changes a person from the inside-out. He gives new life.

Happy New Year!

A new year is upon us. Some view this with eager optimism and anticipation. Others have a sense of foreboding and cynicism about what the future holds as a result of what has transpired over the course of 2016. What will happen in 2017? God alone knows for sure (Isa. 45:11). As believers, we rest in this truth, being confident that His will and purposes are being accomplished (Eph. 1:11). What happens will ultimately result in the greatest good (Rom. 8:28) and He will be given the glory He richly deserves (Eph. 3:20, 21).

People Change … But Not God!

Change is not new! Every generation experiences change in varying degrees and intensities. Decades ago, the writer of the hymn “Abide With Me” expressed it in these words: “Change and decay in all around I see: O, Thou who changest not, abide with me.” But the breathtaking rapidity and consequences of the many changes which are taking place today bring unusual anxiety and perplexity.

The Christmas Cheer

[At this time of year, all of us at the FEA want to praise the Lord for His love and grace in coming to earth to "seek and to save that which was lost." We wish all our friends and fellow-helpers to the Truth a very blessed Christmas, and we thank you all so very much for your fellowship and support in 2016. May the Lord continue to bless and guide you as you seek to remain faithful to Him.]

Whether the Son of Man, our blessed Lord, was born in December or in April is not of great consequence to us. We have no time or care for the controversy.

"As The Manner of Some Is"

It is sad to think of the number of professing Christians who, in the very face of the Holy Spirit’s solemn warning, habitually forsake the assembling of themselves together.
