USHERING IN THE YEAR 2009


January 1, 2009

My dear brothers and sisters in the Lord,

Happy New Year!

I pray that you had a wonderful Christmas holiday, not just with lots of partying, but with extra time for prayer and thanksgiving and rejoicing in the blessings God has showered upon us in 2008. Now it is back to work. And that is something we should all be looking forward to, especially in our work for the kingdom.

We face a new year. What kind of a year will it be? Well, it will be entirely up to us (by the grace of God).

Brothers and sisters, for us personally:

  • We can always maintain our joy, because our joy is Christ. No matter what is happening in our lives, including the seeming negatives, we are loved by God and God has the most wonderful plan for us.
  • We can always have hope, because our hope is Christ. God is merciful and we can trust in His divine mercy. God is faithful and we can look to His outpouring of grace and blessings upon us.

But we are not just to maintain our own equanimity in Christ, but we are once again given the privilege, and responsibility, of making a positive difference in and for the world. We are called on to build the kingdom of God in our midst. We do that by building our homes and our community into a holy army that will fight for God’s righteousness, working to enthrone Jesus in the hearts of every person, every home, every community and every nation.

Brothers and sisters, CFC-FFL is an evangelistic and missionary community. This is why God raised CFC in 1981, re-founded CFC in 1993, and then raised a remnant in 2007. This is our reason for being. This is how we become God’s instruments according to His plan. This is what makes us relevant in the world today. This is how we can look forward to a future full of hope.

If we trust in Jesus for our life, our family and our work, then 2009 will necessarily be a very happy new year.

My prayer is that you will indeed have such a year.

God bless you.

Your brother and servant,

Frank Padilla
