Happy New Year! As you think about all the things you plan to do at the start of this new year, please consider your mission as a follower of Christ. Do you have a coworker or neighbor who could use the message of a personal savior? Is there an area in the church where you could serve? Do you need to take up a new practice such as daily reading of your Bible or praying for those you know are sick or lost?
I encourage you to think on these things and take up something that will bring you closer to Christ and give you confidence to share what He has done for you with others. Neale Donald Walsh states, “Life begins at the end of your comfort zone.” I ask you, what single brave decision do you need to make today to do what matters? Boldly take this year and act on it, for the Lord “has commanded you. Be strong and courageous. Do not be frightened, and do not be dismayed, for the Lord your God is with you wherever you go.” Joshua 1:19.
