Welcome to February Dearest Beloved, Welcome to the month of February, the second Month in our year of Good Reports. This Month of February shall be our Month of New Beginning. Our text is taken from the book of Psalm 11: 3, which says, ‘If the foundations be destroyed, what can the righteous do?’ In Genesis 1:1 the Bible says, ‘In the beginning God created the heaven and the earth.’ In the subsequent verses i.e. Genesis 1:2-30 God made all living and non living things in heaven and on the earth. And finally in verse 31, Genesis 1:31 the Bible says, ‘And God saw every thing that He had made, and behold, it was very good. And the evening and the morning were the sixth day.’ When the heaven and the earth with all things in it were created all were very good. God had good intention for creating us, but along the line the devil manipulated the first man and sin came into the world. And by this everyone becomes sinner having being born of women. We were all born with the sin of Adam. No wonder the book of Romans 3:23 says, ‘For all have sinned and come short of the glory of God.’ The penalty of sin is death. Romans 6:23 says, ‘For the wages of sin is death, but the gift of God is eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord.’ Simply because we can not deliver ourselves from the sinful nature and that God thoroughly loves us, God sent His only begotten son Jesus Christ as a one time sacrifice for our sins – ‘But God commendeth His love toward us in that, while we were yet sinners, Christ died for us.’ – Romans 5:8. This month of February we all need new beginnings, irrespective of your position in Christ, we need a reconnection, and we need to get back to the source. If you are already a spiritual giant keep on being focused, if you are still struggling to live a successful Christian life, you need to return back to God for his divine strength and if you have not started your walk with God, this is the perfect time for you to do so. You need to make a complete U-Turn. The book of 2 Corinthians 5:17 says, ‘Therefore if any man be in Christ, he is a new creature: old things are passed away; behold all things have become new.’ To start this new beginning therefore, you need to come to Jesus. The foundation is very important in life and in everything one does. Take for example when building a house the importance of the foundation can not be overemphasized. If the building is inspected and discovered that the foundation was not constructed to standard, no matter how far you have gone in the building, everything must come down, why? The building will be a potential hazard if the foundation is bad. That is the question being asked in our text above, if the foundation be destroyed, what can the righteous do? And I say the righteous will go back to the root, the righteous will begin again. The righteous will go for a new beginning. Where are you in the journey of your life? How is your foundation? Is it strong or shaky? Is it built on the rock or on the sand? A story was told of Jesus in Matthew 7:24-27 about two builders, the wise who built his house on the rock and the foolish who built his on the sand. One thing was common to both of them the rain descended, the floods came,the winds blew and beat upon those houses. But two varied results occurred, one house stood still, while the other one fell greatly. I ask again, how is your foundation? It is not late to return to God, He is willing and ready to accept you and give you a new beginning. Matthew 6:33 says ‘But seek ye first the Kingdom of God and His righteousness, and all these things shall be added unto you.’ As you start a new beginning with God this month expect a new beginning in your health, your finances, your career, your job and in everything that is of concern to you. Welcome therefore to your month of new beginning! Yours in Christ, Titilayo & Olumide Joseph Ajayi PS: - This is a monthly e-gospel sent on the internet to friends and families across the world.
