    “For it is by grace you have been saved, through faith – and this is not from yourselves, it is the gift of God - not by works, so that no one can boast” (Ephesians 2:8-9 NIV).

    Salvation is a gift and a miracle. It goes against the universal law of seedtime and harvest in Gen 8:22, and works on grace (getting what you don’t deserve). Humanity deserved eternal damnation, but in Jesus, God gave us eternal life.

    Salvation is defined as material and temporal deliverance from danger and apprehension. It includes preservation, pardon, restoration, healing, wholeness and soundness. Hebrews 2:3 says we should not ignore this great salvation, and Hebrews 7:25 says God is able to save completely. So whatever situation you are going through will have a solution this year in Jesus name. 

    The greatest gift can only be from the greatest giver, and as children of God, we all have the nature of this great giver.

    “Because of the Lord’s great love we are not consumed, for his compassions never fail. They are new every morning; great is your faithfulness” (Lamentations 3:22-23, NIV).

    God has taken us through another year of challenges and triumphs as a people, church and nation, and brought us into a new one that will have its own challenges. Nevertheless, we are guaranteed victory IN CHRIST.

    We need to remind ourselves as we start out this New Year that God not only loves us, but He loves us greatly. He is not only faithful, but His faithfulness is great. His GREAT love and faithfulness will see you through whatever circumstances man or the devil brings your way this year. You will prevail and come out triumphantly.

    “How God anointed Jesus of Nazareth with the Holy Spirit and with power, who went about doing good and healing all who were oppressed by the devil, for God was with Him” (Acts 10:38 NKJV).

    The word of the Lord for NCC this year is Jeremiah 32:26-27, paraphrased “is there anything too hard for the Lord?” I therefore said in January it is our year of all things possible. Ecclesiastes 7:8 says “The end of a thing is better than its beginning...” so I am believing that this year is going to end on a more powerful note than it started, and since.

    “Shall the throne of iniquity, which devises evil by law, Have fellowship with You?” (Psalms 94:20 NKJV).

    The Christian walk with God can equate to the three sections of the tabernacle in the Bible, namely the Outer Court, Holy Place and Holy of Holies.

    Most professing believers are outer court christians. This is the stage of sin consciousness, falling in and out of sin on a regular basis. It is characterised with endless sacrificial cycle of sinning, repenting, and obtaining forgiveness. They are baby christians, and largely due to ignorance of the word, are more or less under law, striving to keep the commandments, and little or no intimacy with God.
