As we feel our weakness and frailties and sins, we can go to Jesus who is a perfect saviour and who is one who perfectly keeps his people. As we fear Satan’s influence on us, stick close to Jesus and he will protect you, he will keep you.
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.
Today is an opportunity for you to look to the one who offers this with a grateful heart and simply receive by faith. The offer is there and for those who take it Christ says, ‘It is finished.’
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.’
