May your unfailing love rest upon us, O LORD, even as we put our hope in you: QT for Tue, Jan 2, 2018, read Psalm 33:1- 22;

Though God is such an awesome creator of all human-being as well as the universe, God is considerate of people world. Though he turns the plans of the nations into nothing, He rewards faithfully those who fear Him. The true blessing is the blessings of the Almighty. For the king—everyone is not saved by the power of the horse/money!

· What could we observe the way God foils the plan of people/nations? See also Ps 93:1-2 The LORD reigns, he is robed in majesty; the LORD is robed in majesty and is armed with strength. The world is firmly established; it cannot be moved. Your throne was established long ago; you are from all eternity.

· What could we observe the blessing of those who chose God as their God?

· What does it mean to have God as your God in the coming year? See also Rom 12:1-2 Therefore, I urge you, brothers, in view of God’s mercy, to offer your bodies as living sacrifices, holy and pleasing to God–this is your spiritual act of worship. Do not conform any longer to the pattern of this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind. Then you will be able to test and approve what God’s will is–his good, pleasing and perfect will.

· What does it mean to put our hope in HIm? See also Pr 3:5-6

Trust in the LORD with all your heart and lean not on your own understanding;

in all your ways acknowledge him, and he will make your paths straight.

· How would you like to put your hope in the Lord in the new year?

위대한 능력으로 천지를 지으시고 운행하시는 하나님은 땅위에 존재하는 모든 이들을 굽어 보시고 그들의 행위를 따라 심판 하시고 상, 벌을 주시는 인격적인 하나님이십니다. 열국의 도모를 파하시는 하나님은 우리들의 계획과 모든 행동을 지켜보시고 우리가 하나ㅣ님께 소망을 두는 진실로 축복된 개인, 가정 그리고 나라가 되길 원하십니다. 축복된 새해를 사는 비결입니다.

Satisfy us in the morning with your unfailing love, that we may sing for joy and be glad all our days: QT for Mon, Jan 1, 2018, read Psalm 90:1-17;

Moses had to see 600.000 people perishing one by one because of their unbelief and disobedience. He understood the power of God’s wrath as well as mercy, compassion, and faithfulness as he led the nation of Israel through the desert. He prays for the heart of wisdom to number his days. How do we want to start this new year? How do we want to experience God’s loving-kindness?

· What could we observe about the anger of God Moses must have experienced as he saw the whole generation perishing in the desert? See also Num 14:30-32

Not one of you will enter the land I swore with uplifted hand to make your home, except Caleb son of Jephunneh and Joshua son of Nun.

As for your children that you said would be taken as plunder, I will bring them in to enjoy the land you have rejected. But you–your bodies will fall in this desert.

· What could we pray for the new year like Moses? See also Lam 3:22-23 Because of the LORD’s great love we are not consumed, for his compassions never fail. They are new every morning; great is your faithfulness.

· What could we observe Moses’ heart from the way he prayed for God’s loving kindness each morning?

· What is God telling you about your life in the new year? Lam 3:24-25 I say to myself, “The LORD is my portion; therefore I will wait for him.”The LORD is good to those whose hope is in him, to the one who seeks him;

· How do you want to experience God’s faithfulness and loving kindness through the new year?

I have fought the good fight, I have finished the race, I have kept the faith: QT for Sun Dec 31, 2017, read 2 Tim 4

Though he is suffering loneliness in prison cell in Rome, and though remembers how many people have deserted in the course of the ministry, Paul is still confident and hopeful. For, his eyes were fixed on the right judge of all. And he is convinced of the crown of righteousness he is going to be awarded on the day!

· What could we observe Paul’s heart from the way he doesn’t blame those who have deserted himself? See also 1 Cor 3:7-8 So neither he who plants nor he who waters is anything, but only God, who makes things grow. The man who plants and the man who waters have one purpose, and each will be rewarded according to his own labor.

· What could we observe about his confidence for the way he lived his life? See also 1 Pet 5:4 And when the Chief Shepherd appears, you will receive the crown of glory that will never fade away.

· What would allow us to have confidence in our life? See also Phil 3: 12-14 Not that I have already obtained all this, or have already been made perfect, but I press on to take hold of that for which Christ Jesus took hold of me. Brothers, I do not consider myself yet to have taken hold of it. But one thing I do: Forgetting what is behind and straining toward what is ahead, I press on toward the goal to win the prize for which God has called me heavenward in Christ Jesus.

· What is God saying to you about the way you have lived your life this year?

· How do you want to respond to His voice?

  • 바울이 자긴을 버린 사람들을 원망하지 않는 것을 통해 우리는 그의 마음에 대해 무엇을 관찰 할 수 있나요?  고전 3:7-8 참조 그런즉 심는 이나 물 주는 이는 아무 것도 아니로되 오직 자라게 하시는 이는 하나님뿐이니라 심는 이와 물 주는 이는 한가지이나 각각 자기가 일한 대로 자기의 상을 받으리라

  • 주님은 당신이 2017 한해를 보낸것에/태도에 대해 무엇을 말씀 하고 계실까요? 
  • 당신은 어떻게 주님의 음성을 따르길 원하세요? 

Be ready, because the Son of Man will come at an hour when you do not expect him. QT for Sat Dec 30, 2017, read Mt 24; Though the disciples were impressed with the beauty of the temple complex, though the Lord Jesus asked them not to be attracted to anything in the world or human achievement. Rather, the Lord is asking us to be watchful of the sign of the last days and His coming.

See also 1 Cor 3:13-15 his work will be shown for what it is, because the Day will bring it to light. It will be revealed with fire, and the fire will test the quality of each man’s work.

이러므로 너희도 준비하고 있으라 생각하지 않은 때에 인자가 오리라: 2017, 12, 30, 토, QT, 마 24을 읽으세요; 

제자들은 성전의 건물들과 아름다움에 심취되어 주님의 관심을 끌려 하였지만 주님은 전혀 인간들의 업적에 관심을 보이지 않으시며 세상의 마지막과 자신의 재림에 대해 말씀을 하십니다. 주님은 연말과 새해를 맞는 우리의 관심이 어디에 집중되고 있는지를 묻고 계시며 과연 주님의 재림하심이 가깝다면 우리가 어떤 삶을 살아가야 할지에 대해 말씀 하십니다.

Having a form of godliness but denying its power. Have nothing to do with them; QT, for Fri Dec 29, 2017, read 2 Tim 3:1-17;

Paul Is reminding Timothy about his own suffering and persecution he had to endure all those years of his Ministry career as an apostle including where Timothy grew up. And he is warning Timothy of the terrible times coming in the last days. People would continue to be attracted to the form of godliness but would deny its power. We need to have nothing to do with them!

· What form of godliness could we notice from the trend of the time of the Lord Jesus? See also Mt 23:5-7

“Everything they do is done for men to see: They make their phylacteries wide and the tassels on their garments long;

they love the place of honor at banquets and the most important seats in the synagogues; they love to be greeted in the marketplaces and to have men call them ‘Rabbi.’

· What could we observe the powerlessness of religion in people’s lives? See also 1 Sam 1:4-5 & 7-8

Whenever the day came for Elkanah to sacrifice, he would give portions of the meat to his wife Peninnah and to all her sons and daughters. But to Hannah, he gave a double portion because he loved her, and the LORD had closed her womb.

And because the LORD had closed her womb, her rival kept provoking her in order to irritate her. This went on year after year. Whenever Hannah went up to the house of the LORD, her rival provoked her till she wept and would not eat.

· What form of godliness could we observe in our times that we need to be aware of?

· What is a form of godliness the Lord says that you need to have nothing to do with? See also Eph 5: 10-11

and find out what pleases the Lord.

Have nothing to do with the fruitless deeds of darkness, but rather expose them.
