Our lives are often busy with work, paying the bills, the kids, the meals, and so on. These are all things we need to do, but don’t let us get so caught up in them that we miss the most important thing of all – being ready to meet with Jesus.
The Bible teaches that ultimately, we don’t own anything. God owns everything and we are his stewards or his managers. Giving generously is a sign that we trust God will provide for us
As we begin a New Year together, I’d like us all to take this opportunity to reset and recalibrate and reprioritise our lives, doing so by listening to the voice of God. He comes to us today with a straightforward command: ‘Train yourself to be godly.’
We are broken down as people, but we can turn away from a life in rebellion against God, and call out to Jesus in prayer for rescue. If we do so, he will rescue us.
Is your understanding of Jesus too small? Don’t you realise he is the Creator of all things? He has the right to tell you how to live, and he does. He wants us to teach one another everything he has commanded, and not pick and choose which rules we like and which ones we don’t. His authority trumps the current views of culture. Please, make sure you are on Jesus’ side now, before it is too late.
