Mission Statement

In classical sacrifices, the people get the good bits, and the gods get the refuse, the bits that would get thrown out otherwise.

Not our God. Leviticus (particularly Leviticus 3) describes the sacrifices that our LORD demanded from His people of Israel. God gets the kidneys, the tail, and all the fat. He gets the prime steak, He gets the best.

Today we do not literally give sacrifices of animals. For us the ultimate sacrifice has been made through our Lord, Christ Jesus. But should always be our ambition to do the same thing - to offer God the best of what we have, to offer Him the fat, and not the smoke and bones.

Goals for 2011

1. Go on an overseas mission trip, preferably to Uganda

2. Memorise 20 more psalms.

(I'm at 23 now, so I want to be at 43 by the end of next year!)

3. Read Matthew Henry's Commentary on the Bible.

4. Develop my prayer life

Specifically, I want to see LOTS of answers to prayers, and to become closer and closer to God. Praying continually would be great too!

5. To speak words of encouragement and not mean words, impure words, or gossip.

6. To be joyful always, in all circumstances.

7. To instruct and admonish children using Scripture and not the philosophy of men.

8. To consistently practice both the harp and the piano.

That's it!
