Opportunity in the New Year... he New Year is a great opportunity to create New Beginnings. I’m reminded that life is but a vapor, it is here and then gone (James 4:14). Many will go through life without a specific purpose and then suddenly it is all over. Many will build their lives with no eternal aim. It is my hope that as you read this you would reflect on the meaning of life. We tend to go through life with fears, hurts, re-jection and countless struggles not understanding that we are not truly living; only surviving. Jesus Christ gave His life so that we could have life, and life in abundance here on earth (John 10:10). This does not mean life will be without struggle, it does mean we can hope and have joy even when things aren’t going our way. It also means our value is not determined by our upbringing and circumstances. T Jesus in us is the “HOPE OF GLORY“ (Colos-sians 1:27). We were created in the image of God and through Jesus; God lives on the inside of us by way of His Holy Spirit. We then have help to make a positive impact here on earth in the lives of people and to live beyond circumstances. If you are living a life without Jesus, without hope, I encourage you to acknowledge and accept Him as your personal Lord and Savior. Believe in your heart that He is the Son of God and start your New Begin-ning (John 3:16). This is a New Beginning with an eternal reward in heaven and a life with meaning and purpose on earth. -Apostle Cherlene Adewunmi 2 Sides 2 The Cross Church WORSHIP DIRECTORY A lso on F Acebook And T wiTTer 9:30 Am T rAdiTionAl 11:00 Am c onTemporAry 16202 B ruce B.
