Happy New Year, Family:
I greet you with abundant love. May we begin the year in perfect position to receive our Lord. “Like a bride waiting for her groom, we’ll be a church waiting for you.” These lyrics are from the song Even So Come by Chris Tomlin. What powerful words and imagery.
New International Version (NIV)
10 I delight greatly in the Lord;
my soul rejoices in my God.
For he has clothed me with garments of salvation
and arrayed me in a robe of his righteousness,
as a bridegroom adorns his head like a priest,
and as a bride adorns herself with her jewels.
11 For as the soil makes the sprout come up
and a garden causes seeds to grow,
so the Sovereign Lord will make righteousness
and praise spring up before all nations.
