New Year's Advice Heard From an Elder

1) Watch who gets into your boat. Jesus got into Peter's boat and filled it with fish.
     Jonah got on a boat and almost sank it.

2) God will not allow you to hang on to two worlds. You've got to burn your plow.
     It's God's responsibility to send people to take you to the next level. It's your
     responsibility to burn your plow.

3) As a true friend we must warn those who've gone astray. Once we warn them,
     it's up to them to turn back.

4) We're in an all out war against our flesh giving in to the spirit of disobedience    
      that's at work in the world today. That's why the Bible talks about "weapons" of                  
      our warfare. Best be learning what they are and how to use them in 2012. Here are a few of them: the Word of God, written or whispered in our ears; the blood of Jesus; gifts of the Spirit, and fruit of the Spirit, especially love, joy and peace. Hint: anything from God can always blast to bits anything from the enemy.

Have a happy, blessed, victorious New Year!
