How now do we live in light of the great coming of Jesus?
For many there is a great build up to Christmas and then it is over. We must now come down off the mountain, and journey along the road of life.
We need the mountain top experiences of seeking Jesus, but life is lived down below. We meet Jesus at the top of the mountain and also in the regular rhythms of life. Jesus came to transform your life. Jesus, taught in such a way that he believed it would have an impact on the daily rhythms of life.
2 Corinthians 5:17-18 says, “Anyone who belongs to Christ has become a new person. The old life is gone; a new life has begun! And all of this is a gift from God, who brought us back to himself through Christ” (NLT).
As you look ahead to the new year and following Jesus. What do need to you let go of from the storm?
To live in the new life ahead, what do you need to let go of from the past?
When we follow Jesus it does not mean all our storms go away. The storm may still be around, but how do you engage, enter, and experience the full life that Jesus came to give?
It starts with him as your center.
John 10:10 New Living Translation (NLT)
10 The thief’s purpose is to steal and kill and destroy. My purpose is to give them a rich
and satisfying life.
Christmas is just the beginning of the Christian calendar year. I encourage you to find a reading plan to take you through the gospels and discover Christ with fresh eyes.
This new year how will you intentionally use the resources God has given you to impact and spread the word of God.
Let me leave you with two resources.
One, is to sign up to receive weekly post from my blog. Most weeks you will receive 2-3 post directly to your email.
The second, is to consider getting a life coach. A life coach can help bring clarity to where you are and want to go, then help develop a plan to get there.
This year do not sit in the back seat, but grab the steering wheel and enter, experience and engage the life God is calling you to.
May you have a great year and God be with you.
