“GOODBYE AND HELLO”

IT IS THAT ONE TIME OF YEAR WHEN WE SAY ‘GOODBYE’ TO THE OLD YEAR AND ‘HELLO’ TO THE NEW YEAR. FOR MANY THE GOODBYE IS A WELCOME EVENT WITH TRAGEDIES, LOSSES OF A LOVED ONE OR OTHER DISAPPOINTMENTS WE WANT TO PUT IN OUR PAST. FOR OTHERS, THE NEW YEAR IS AN EXCITING TIME TO WELCOME NEW OPPORTUNITIES.

OUR SOCIETY HAS EMBRACED THE IDEA OF NEW YEAR’S RESOLUTIONS. WE WANT TO STOP SMOKING, LOSE WEIGHT, EXERCISE MORE, FIND A NEW JOB…ALL GREAT ‘WANT TO’ IDEALS. ALL TO OFTEN, THE RESOLUTIONS ARE LOST AND DISCARDED BEFORE WE GIVE OURSELVES A CHANCE TO KEEP THEM.

WHAT IS YOUR RESOLUTION FOR THE NEW YEAR?

THIS YEAR MAKE A RESOLUTION YOU CAN KEEP. RESOLVE TO GROW CLOSER WITH GOD. BY GROWING WITH GOD AND FOCUSING ON HIS WILL FOR YOUR LIFE, THE OTHER RESOLUTIONS WILL BE EASIER TO KEEP.

MAKE GOD YOUR PRIORITY. YOU ARE HIS PRIORITY. READ YOUR BIBLE MORE. GO TO CHURCH REGULARLY. GET INVOLVED WITH GROUPS AT YOUR CHURCH. STUDY GOD’S WORD EVERY DAY. START WITH THE DEVOTIONALS AND READ THE VERSES. BE SURE TO SHARE..SHARE THE WONDERFUL LOVE OF GOD WITH OTHERS. TELL THE STORY OF CHRIST AND THE SALVATION HE HAS GIVEN TO YOU AND WILL GIVE TO THEM.

SAY ‘HELLO’ TO A NEW LIFE WITH CHRIST!

“THAT EVERYONE WHO BELIEVES MAY HAVE ETERNAL LIFE IN HIM. FOR GOD SO LOVED THE WORLD THAT HE GAVE HIS ONE AND ONLY SON, THAT WHOEVER BELIEVES IN HIM SHALL NOT PERISH BUT HAVE ETERNAL LIFE. FOR GOD DID NOT SEND HIS SON INTO THE WORLD TO CONDEMN THE WORLD, BUT TO SAVE THE WORLD THROUGH HIM.” JOHN 3:15-17 NIV
