“As we embark on a new year a great opportunity awaits us. The great opportunity is based on the great promises that we inherit in Christ. The Apostle Paul says, “Now to him who is able to do far more abundantly than all that we ask or think, according to the power at work within us, to him be glory in the church and in Christ Jesus throughout all generations, forever and ever. Amen (Eph 3:20-21).” Amazing, isn’t it? – “… far more abundantly than ALL that we ask or think” – what encouragement! And it is according to the power that is at work in us – the power of Christ working redemption throughout all generations! William Carey said, “Expect great things from God. Attempt great things for God.” This expresses the opportunity that awaits each one of us in serving Christ. As we desire our Savior to be worshipped, let us not limit ourselves to small things, but embark on a global scale to see Him worshipped among all the nations – every tribe and language and people. “It is about the greatness of God, not the significance of man. God made man small and the universe big to say something about himself” (John Piper, Don’t Waste Your Life). As we deny ourselves, take up His cross and follow Him, let’s remember that we have the privilege of simply asking to see God glorified. “Whatever you ask in my name, this I will do, that the Father may be glorified in the Son (John 14:13).” This month’s ACU Prayer Update is a preview for prayer for 2013. Please join us in asking in the name of Christ that the things mentioned below might be done by Christ so that the Father may be glorified in the Son. “
