Lay Aside Every Weight

Hello lovers of God!

My prayer and hope is that, wherever you are, you are having a joyous holiday. And especially, that you are spending it in ways that will please the Lord and glorify His name.

In all that you do, always bear in mind that you are a disciple of our Lord Jesus Christ, and a devoted lover of the Holy Spirit.

This should not be a season to idle away in worldliness and carnality. What’s the point in that? No gain at all in that.

Let this be a season for prayers and sober reflections as you approach the new year. Resolve to throw off everything that hinders your loyalty to the Holy Spirit. Be determined to strip off that sin that easily entangles you.

Renew your commitment to the Holy Spirit as we move forward to the coming year, which I can already perceive will be glorious and blissful for all those that long for the appearing of our Lord.
