Charis Washington DC will be on CHRISTmas and New Year break until January 11, 2016.
We wish you a Happy New Year!
But HOW does a Christian receive a Happy New Year in 2016?
I Peter 3: 10-11: “For he that will love life and see good days, let him refrain his tongue from evil, and his lips that they speak no guile: Let him eschew evil and do good; let him seek peace and ensue it.”
Guile—deceit, subtlety, bait, fraud. Agreeing with the devil in speech is speaking deceit. Genesis 3:1 forever reveals subtlety as a characteristic of the devil. His words are bait to hook us into a life of sin, sickness, depression and poverty. They are a fraud. Satan’s words seem true but they’re not. Evicting them from the heart keeps them out of the mouth.
Eschew—to turn away from, to shun. No matter how tempting or how harmless a behavior seems, he who wants good days and to love life has nothing to do with evil in any way, shape or form. Like a lighthouse in a dark night, the Holy Spirit shows the way of escape.
Ensue—to run swiftly in order to catch a person or thing, to pursue, to earnestly endeavor to acquire. This is no recliner, TV remote, bowl of ice cream kind of peace. This is a willingness to apologize, being the one who changes when we’re wrong and sometimes even when we’re not. We have the courage to say the hard thing that needs to be spoken. We are slow to speak, especially when we want to convince others that we are right and they are wrong. Isaiah 26:3 shows us that we ensue peace by keeping our minds upon God, His Word, His guidance.
If loving life and endless good days are the goal, anything we feel like saying doesn’t drip from the mouth like drool. Flirting with evil is a thing of the past. Our minds are stayed on God, trusting in Him and His ways.
By the time 2017 rolls around, we could be hiking the sunny trail that leads to loving life and seeing one good day after another.

Charis Bible College – Washington DC
We’re well into autumn and the leaves on the trees are a riot of colors. Students have formed friendships and God is working in their lives. Kathy wanted to attend third year at Charis Bible College this year but didn’t drive at night. Yet she was certain that God was leading her to attend third year. “Do You want me to ride the buses and Metro?” she asked God. “You know I don’t drive at night and it’s a long way from where I live to Charis.”
Kathy volunteered to help with registration at Open House and used public transportation to get here. She was writing down the address of a first year student when she saw God’s answer to her dilemma. She didn’t know the student she was registering but God did. Mike lived right around the corner from her and was glad for Kathy’s company during the car ride.
You may have your own blessings waiting for you at Charis Bible College.
It’s not too late to start. Winter term begins November 30.
Come part-time (2 evenings a week) or full-time (4 evenings a week).
