“Happy New Year!” “Should auld acquaintance be forgot..” and the world rolls into 2021, trying, in fact, to forget, and even to expunge memory of the greatest reality – that this Universe is God’s property, that fallen humanity is accountable to Him, and that the Reckoning is coming. But He doesn’t allow wilful forgetfulness, and has wired nature to penalise sin and point clearly up to Him.
We believe because He first loved us, and ushered us into His kingdom for fellowship, to fight gladly and lovingly for His glory, empowered by grace. This is good news! So our “auld acquaintance” will not be forgot, and we can indeed say, “Happy New Year!”
The Lord is my Shepherd, I shall not want: Yea, though I walk through the valley of death, I will fear no evil…Surely, goodness and mercy shall follow me all the days of my life…
