Deer Creek Church of Christ
It is indeed a bright new year.  It holds promise for many things.  If we seek first God's kingdom and righteousness, he will provide so we need not worry (Matthew 6:33).

Jesus taught that we are to let our light shine so that others could see our good works and this in turn would bring glory to the Father (Matthew 5:16; 1 Peter 2:12).  While we are not saved BY our own good works or the works of the Law, we are saved FOR good works (Ephesians 2:10).  It is by our works that we prove our faith (James 2:14-26).

Let us all endeavor to appeal to Scripture which is able to equip us for every good work as our sole authority (2 Timothy 3:16-17).  But let us also endeavor as God's special people to be zealous for good works (Titus 2:14).

The work of the Lord's church is three-fold:  evangelism, edification, and benevolence.  Evangelism is the taking of the gospel plan of salvation to all who are lost.  Edification is the building of our brothers and sisters in the body.  Benevolence is charitable outreach to those less fortunate beginning especially with the household of God.

Let's shine in '09
