“Happy New Year!”
by Pastor Jonathan Steeper
Looking forward to 2016, what awaits us?
We need no magic crystal ball to decide our level of caution or excitement. Jesus goes ahead of us. Jesus holds our future with His promise of strength, grace and fruitful joy in the work of His Kingdom.
As Christians we are not afraid to look back. We walk as forgiven children with our sin erased. We rejoice in the victories and blessings of the past, but our gaze is riveted on the future.
The golden years are ahead of us, never behind.
This is true for “2016 The year of our Lord”.
We are on a journey forward in growing in Christ and seeing His Kingdom advance.
We are on a journey heavenward and the prize is God’s glory!
Our future belongs to Jesus!
“One thing I do: Forgetting what is behind and straining forward to what is ahead, I press on toward the goal to win the prize for which God has called me heavenward in Christ Jesus.” Phil 3: 13
