“Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ!  According to His great mercy, He has caused us to be born again to a living hope through the resurrection of Jesus Christ from the dead.”  1 Peter 1:3 (ESV)

A new year is not a new birth but it can be a new beginning!  As you enter 2016, consider how you can start fresh in your walk with the Deliverer of your soul.

The “living hope” that we now possess in Christ calls for a lavish love.  This love is instinctual but also learned.  As we surrender more and more of ourselves – God the Holy Spirit takes us to new depths of discipline, devotion and love.

2016 is a perfect time to refocus your full attention upon this relationship with your Creator who loves you beyond all else.

Join with us each Sunday of this new year as we commit at Comite to grow more in love with Christ!

Happy New Year!

“Seeking the face of God in everything, everyone, everywhere, all the time, and seeing His hand in every happening – that is contemplation in the heart of the world.”
– Mother Teresa

“Help me speak Your fragrance wherever I go.  Flood my soul with Your Spirit and life.
Penetrate and possess my whole being so utterly that my life may only be a radiance of yours.

Shine through me and be so in me that every soul I come in contact with may feel Your presence in my soul.  Let them look up,  And see me no longer,  But only Jesus!

Stay with me and then I will begin to shine as you shine . . . The light, O Jesus, will be all from You; none of it will be mine.  It will be You, shining on others through me.

Let me thus praise You in the way that You love best, by shining on those around me.

Let me preach You without preaching, not by words but by example, by the catching force, the sympathetic influence of what I do, the evident fullness of the love my heart bears for You.”  Amen.
– C.N.

Yesterday is gone.
Tomorrow has not yet come.
We have only today,
Let us begin.

May this be our charge for 2016!  We have only today.  Let us begin – let our light shine!

Happy New Year!
–Dale

 
Meditations of a Hermit PDF Print E-mail

“Our response is to rejoice in the infinite happiness of God and, on a lower scale, in our own crosses and to desire still more of them, for in them we have the privilege of imitating Him and proving our love, and there is nothing dearer to the heart that loves.  We shall never lack either this happiness, nor God nor the Cross.”
– Meditations of a Hermit



“How can one pity anyone who is doing the will of our Lord?  Is there anything sweeter on earth than to do the will of Him one loves?  And if it gives one some trouble to carry it out, the sweetness is all the greater.”
– Meditations of a Hermit

PEACE PDF Print E-mail

“Peace I leave with you; My peace I give to you.  Not as the world gives do I give to you.  Let not your hearts be troubled, neither let them be afraid.”   John 14:27 (ESV)

Only the Prince of Peace can leave peace behind.  Wherever The Christ chooses to abide, His presence provides the gift of divine peace.  Like Charles Shultz’s Peanuts character,  Pigpen – who never goes anywhere without his cloud, Christ never leaves a heart absent of peace.

For a believer to feel bereft of this gift, that one must actively put it aside.  Believers can refuse it, deny It, or by ignoring it . . . choose to believe the enemy’s lies over God’s truth.  But it’s always there – the ever present gift of peace – for those who will accept it and hold fast!

This other-worldly peace is obviously far more than just the mere absence of strife.  This salve soothes troubled hearts and vanquishes hidden fears – fears that seek to undermine our harmony while diminishing our effectiveness within the kingdom.

The peace of Christ instils resolve – but the lack of it can seriously damage that determination to faithfully serve.  Accept the gift of peace – and understand – that by the grace of God, you are worthy of this present!

Merry Christmas!

Divine Love PDF Print E-mail

The ultimate expression of love is our Savior upon the cross.  The sinless One dying for the sins of mankind.

Paul tells us that “. . . God showed His great love for us by sending Christ to die for us while we were still sinners.”  Romans 5:8 (NLT)

An impossible issue can only be handled by a loving creator – Jesus crushes the curse ushered in by our rebellion.  When Christ, at Calvary, uttered the words, “It is finished,” more than we could have ever hope for  became reality.

Love brought life!

As we celebrate the advent season, may we keep fixed in our thoughts the fact that it is only by Divine love that we are spared.

Merry Christmas!
