Happy New Year! I hope you enjoyed the Binary day of 010111 or 1/1/11! Whether a day of football or feasting on blackeyed peas and cornbread ( I missed mine!) or a day of work (yes, that was me!), it is great to start anew!
What can we do with our new year? I’ll share a few ideas and hope you’ll do the same!
If you haven’t accepted the Lord and obeyed the Gospel including repentance and baptism, do it! Every conversion story in the New Testament included baptism as part of the salvation process. It symbolizes new life and washing of sins.
If you are a believer but have been a bit stagnant, it is time to RENEW! Read Isaiah Chapter 1. God doesn’t want our tired, heartless rituals. He wants our bodies, minds and hearts! Though we are unworthy, He will send us to spread His message (Isaiah 6)
Commit to read the Bible everyday. I am reading online (Bible Gateway-the Message) each day and committed to listen to NIV- the Bible Experience- as I drive each day. Also, plan to get up early so I can pray before I leave the house.
Commit to your health- God created the temple! Do not abuse it with your addictions! Resources are available to help you cut back or stop smoking, to support you emotionally as you battle alcohol or drug addiction, to lose weight if necessary for your health (I feel that gluttony is just as much a sin as smoking and drinking) and to battle emotional concerns/ mental illness.
Commit in service to your church and your community. We are committed to serving our singles (and our marriages) through your local church. Invite us to come work with you. We are examining ways to better support our neighbors. Also, examining where God wants us to be physically….
