Philippians 2 is an excellent resolution to make. We are not keen on making New Year resolutions, but on constantly keeping ourselves in check with how the Lord wants us to live. The definition for “resolute” is : very determined: having or showing a lot of determination. A synonym of resolute is “faithful”.
“The saying is trustworthy and deserving of full acceptance, that Christ Jesus came into the world to save sinners, of whom I am the foremost.” (1 Timothy 1:15)…Jason’s favorite “Christmas” Bible verse. The GREAT news is that the Jesus came, as a man in history, to save sinners. This is Great because I am a sinner who was in need of a Savior. It’s GREAT because as God He was able to save all who in faith look to Him. Real Savior for real sinners!

Metro North PCA will be hosting a marriage seminar for Joint Base Charleston and other reserve service members. The focus will be on various personality types as outlined in the “Two Sides of Love” by Drs Gary Smalley an John Trent. CH Nealy Brown, will help the participants understand one another better and relate biblical principles around conflict resolution. Please pray that Biblical truth will be spoken and relayed and that God will bless the relationships of those who find themselves under constant pressure. I, Jason, will be working in the background to make this event happen. It will be a major effort and I am so grateful to the folks at Metro North for throwing in on this project with Ministry to the Military and Joint Base Charleston.
Actions flow from the convictions of the heart. Pray that hearts and minds are met with the transforming power of the Gospel of God in Christ Jesus. Truth places demands upon us, but the demands are for good and result in blessings. When truth is subjective, scandal follows because “my truth” is intended to support “my interest” ; it’s the natural outcome. Pray that these who recently fell in the cheating scandal will walk in grace and find every help in this hour of need.
