the cup

 this morning I took some time here:
“So Jesus said to Peter, "Put your sword into its sheath; shall I not drink the cup that the Father has given me?"” John‬ ‭18:11‬ ‭ESV‬‬

John 16

we read John chapter 16 this morning
     today it was verse 13 which returned me to prayer...

“When the Spirit of truth comes, he will guide you into all the truth, for he will not speak on his own authority, but whatever he hears he will speak, and he will declare to you the things that are to come.”
‭‭John‬ ‭16:13‬ ‭ESV‬‬

oh Father. Lord God Almighty. by Your grace. may i have ears to hear as Your Spirit guides me into all truth. amen.

a reminder from Piper

Never cease to ponder Paul’s words, “I have been crucified with Christ. It is no longer I who live, but Christ who lives in me. And the life I now live in the flesh I live by faith in the Son of God, who loved me and gave himself for me” (Galatians 2:20). Not I. Yet I. By faith.  ~ John Piper

((i am a little behind schedule in the announcing; thankfully, not in the naming))

the naming of a year, Ann's idea
i am thankful

2017, for me, The Year of of Koinonia (communion 2 Corinthians 13:14)

fellowship, association, community, joint participation

This is the message we have heard from him and proclaim to you, that God is light, and in him is no darkness at all. If we say we have fellowship with him while we walk in darkness, we lie and do not practice the truth. But if we walk in the light, as he is in the light, we have fellowship with one another, and the blood of Jesus his Son cleanses us from all sin.  If we say we have no sin, we deceive ourselves, and the truth is not in us. If we confess our sins, he is faithful and just to forgive us our sins and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness. 1 John 1:5-9

happy new year
