New Year Message, 2012
NEW YEAR LETTER 2012, WOMEN'S MINISTRIES - 'COME & SEE'
'Do not be afraid for I know you are looking for Jesus, who was crucified. He is not here; he has risen just as he said. Come and see the place where he lay. Then go quickly and tell his disciples.' Matthew 28:5-7b
Greetings to you all in the beautiful Name of Jesus! He is Lord! This New Year Message is sent to you with the prayer that God will bless you in deep and meaningful ways in the days ahead.
Our exciting and inviting international theme ‘Come and See’, urges us all to seek more deeply after Jesus. We each know the blessing of Jesus’ kind invitation to come to him – the invitation that changed our lives.
We were able to see the message of repentance, forgiveness, salvation and holy living. We were warmly welcomed.
Jesus invited all to come to him and often the invitation was very personal: Peter, Nathanael, the Samaritan woman. This year may we focus our attention on finding holy ways to bring this invitation to our communities. We pray that all involved in women’s ministries will issue creative and intentional invitations to come and meet Jesus Christ.
And what joy when we see!! We then want others to have the ‘eyes of (their) hearts enlightened, so that (they) will know what is the hope of his calling, what are the riches of the glory of his inheritance in the saints.’ We will pray for many to have their spiritual eyes opened.
May God bless us all in this New Year.
