MESSAGE #1: Let's Operate As a Team to Achieve Our Goals and Dreams in 2015 -- A Message from Aubrey R. Taylor, Publisher of Houston Business Connections Magazine 

It isn’t difficult to see how money, influence, and powerful friends can open doors for us. However, we have a gift living on the inside of each of us who can do the same thing and more. The moment you and I got saved the spirit of God came to reside on the inside of us – to empower us during times like the ones we're facing. This means, right now, you and I are well-able to accomplish any task God calls us to. We are well-able to reach any God-inspired goal we set out to accomplish. We’re well-able to walk into the presence of “so-called powerful people” with boldness, assurance, courage, and confidence that God is with us.

WE CAN DO WHAT WE HAVE BEEN CALLED TO DO IN AMERICA IN 2015

We are believers! We shall not be put to shame. The scripture saith, WHOSOEVER BELIEVETH ON HIM SHALL NOT BE ASHAMED in Romans 10:11. So there’s nothing left for us to do; but to get it done! The scripture also saith, WHOSOEVER SHALL CALL UPON THE NAME OF THE LORD SHALL BE SAVED in Romans 10:13.

I DECLARE THAT 2015 IS A YEAR for DREAMS to come true. 2015 IS A YEAR for RENEWED VISIONS, and REALIZED HOPES. So let’s endeavor to accomplish our GOALS and DREAMS as a "BODY OF BELIEVERS" in 2015. We are the body of Christ, and we’re well-able to have OUR GIFTS and OUR TALENTS shine forth as a BRIGHT LIGHT and BEACON OF HOPE in this dark and hopeless world we’re living in today.

And don’t forget this: “A man’s gift maketh room for him and bringeth him before great men.” – Proverbs 18:16.
