Happy New Year
A new year is a fresh start on the calendar, full of hope and potential.
Brad Paisley said, “Tomorrow is the first blank page of a 365 page book. Write a good one.”
Paul said, “Making the most of your time, because the days are evil.”
Ephesians 5:16 (NASB)
Paul understands everyday could be His last day. He has been stoned, imprisoned, and beaten not knowing if he would see another day.
For all of us it is important that we make to most of the time we have been given, by living in obedience to Christ.
In Christ alone,
