A Season of New Beginnings

The Church of God in Australia was officially formed in 1976 upon the principles of Christ Jesus as they are revealed in the Holy Bible, the Word of God. It has its foundation of faith and practice in the Holy Scriptures and the vital experience of its constituents is Spirit-filled.

The theme of "

New Beginnings

" has captivated out attention. This is happening not only on a National Office perspective, but also among a number of individuals. It is interesting how God is speaking to His people in similar ways.

The wonderful truth is that our God is the God who continually presents to His people new opportunities, new blessings, and new beginnings daily.

Humanly speaking, the old things seem to be more familiar and comfortable. However, for those of us in the work of the Lord, it is the old things that lull us to sleep and keep us in our comfort zone. God needs to stretch us occasionally, and to take us down some new paths in order to keep us fresh and focused in the work of the Lord. The foundation of our faith will never change, but we know that occasionally our methods and approach to the Lord's work needs to be changed.

May I encourage each of us to tell God that we are available to Him to do a new thing in our lives? Open your life to Him and expect Him to do a new work in you that can bring about a

new beginning

in your life and ministry.
