My Sisters and Brothers in Christ—
As we begin this New Year, I ask that you pray on this piece of scripture…
“God has made us what we are. In Christ Jesus, God made us to do good works, which God planned in advance for us to live our lives doing” (Ephesians 2:10 NCV).
There are three things you can do with your life: You can waste it, you can spend it, or you can invest it. The best use of your life is to invest it in something that will last longer than your time on Earth.
The worst thing you can do is live simply for today and live for yourself. God did not put you on Earth to live for yourself. He created you to be like Christ.
We know that Christ came to Earth to do two things: “For even the Son of Man did not come to be served, but to serve, and to give His life as a ransom for many” (Mark 10:45 NIV).
When we begin to follow Jesus, He empowers us for a life of service. The more we become like Jesus, the more we will serve others.
Happy New Year !!!
