UAPB GOLDEN LIONS!!!
Hello everyone! I pray you are all well and in good health and spirit! We're in the 3rd month of the year, the clocks have been set up an hour, and Spring is in process! I'm so excited about Spring because I just love seeing the awesome display of God's work through the rebirth and replenish of His creation.

Here is the RR for March.

UAPB GOLDEN LIONS!!!
A New Day; Gather Yourselves!
Zephaniah 2: 1-3

The Holy Bible tells us that each morning we are given new mercy (Lamentations 3). Coupled with new mercy, each day also brings new opportunities for us to seek the Lord, seek righteousness, and seek meekness. The prophet Zephaniah encouraged Jerusalem (the people of Judah) to turn from their sin and rebellion (disobedience) and come back to God. Zephaniah understood the seriousness of persistent rebellion against God and warned the people of Judah. Zephaniah knew the day of God’s wrath would come and when it did, the people would not have the chance to repent.

Rebellion against God leads to corrupt behavior. Corrupt behavior sets a path for a corrupt society. A corrupt society leads to a corrupt nation and corrupt world. God does NOT desire for any of us to be influenced by society or by the world; He knows that such influences (so accessible and readily on hand) have the potential to corrupt us. But just as Zephaniah encouraged Jerusalem to seek humbleness (meekness) and righteousness, we are encouraged today. There is hope for all who walk in the holiness and righteousness of God. Salvation is ours, redemption is ours, all because of the love of our Lord Jesus Christ, who gave His life so that we may experience a new life in Him!

So, today, right now, gather yourself! We’ve been given another chance to THINK good (Phil. 4:8), SPEAK good (Psalm 24:4, Eph. 4:29), DO good (Psalm 37:3), and a chance to TRUST God (Prov. 3:5, Is. 26:3-4). We’ve been given another chance to do what the Lord requires of us: do justly, love mercy, and walk humbly with God! (Micah 6:8). Listen to the Lord, not your insecurities. Rely on the Lord, not your own strength. Seek Him while He may be found. And don’t spend another minute out of fellowship with Him; He has blessed you with another day to give Him your life-ABSOLUTE SURRENDER! Just Do It!

The grace of our Lord Jesus Christ be with you always
