Now that we are a week into our new year, things are beginning to settle down. The hustle and bustle of holiday shopping is over, vacations are over and kids are back in school. But one thing is for certain, it’s easy to forget where we’ve been and where we’re headed.
Think about what you went through in 2016. Think about the plans you have for this coming year. Maybe you’re wanting to start that exercise program, or read several books this year. Maybe you want to do something new for your family and take them places they’ve never been.
Life is full of surprises, but when we place God in the center of our adventures, he’ll make sure that he’s ever present and allows us to see his grace when things go south. The grace of God is more than just salvation and unmerited favor of God. Grace is the power of the Holy Spirit at work in our lives, helping us live a life of power and purpose.
Remember that the next time something happens that you didn’t want. Remember that you are the voice of God to those who need God. You are the only person who can bring God’s grace to someone who feels that 2017 is going to be just as last year, painful.
So, it really doesn’t matter what life throws our way, we have the grace of God, through the Holy Spirit, giving us power to charge into this new year with boldness.
We welcome Dr. Hal Baumchen, a member of Life Church, who will be bringing us the Word of God. If you missed last Sunday, you can get caught up here.
Also, make sure you join us for our MONTHLY POT-LUCK fellowship meal following the morning service. This is a great time to get together with friends. We ask that everyone bring a main dish to share and a side, salad or dessert.
