Happy New Year.

As we begin a new season of weekly devotions, may the Lord encourage, challenge, calm, inspire, and meet with us.

In the final hours of 2023, I joined the New Year party at Trinity Baptist Church. It was a fitting end to the year. We welcomed one another, enjoyed food, played games and laughed, sang songs of worship, and took time to express thanks to God for blessings in 2023 and to pray as we entered 2024. The final hours of 2023 were a picture of what I pray the Lord will continue to bless in 2024: life lived before God in reverence, reflection, joy, love, community, prayer, worship, and celebration.

Take this moment to listen to Psalm 145:1-6. May these words be your prayer for 2024.

I will exalt you, my God the King; I will praise your name for ever and ever. Every day I will praise you and extol your name for ever and ever.

Great is the Lord and most worthy of praise; his greatness no one can fathom. One generation commends your works to another; they tell of your mighty acts.

They speak of the glorious splendor of your majesty—and I will meditate on your wonderful works. They tell of the power of your awesome works—and I will proclaim your great deeds.

新年快樂! 歡迎再次收看週三線上靈修。


在2023年的最後幾個小時,我參加了教會的新年派對。這是一年的結束。我們互相歡迎,一起享受美食。我們一起玩遊戲,一起歡笑。我們唱敬拜詩歌,花時間感謝神在2023年的祝福,並為進入2024年時禱告。2023 年的最後幾個小時的畫面是我禱告主在 2024 年繼續祝福:在敬畏、反思、喜樂、愛、社群、禱告、敬拜和慶祝中活在神面前。


我的 神我的王阿、我要尊崇你.我要永永遠遠稱頌你的名。我要天天稱頌你.也要永永遠遠讚美你的名。耶和華本為大、該受大讚美.其大無法測度。這代要對那代頌讚你的作為、也要傳揚你的大能。我要默念你威嚴的尊榮、和你奇妙的作為。人要傳說你可畏之事的能力.我也要傳揚你的大德。

Grace and peace
