I feel like it was only January a few minutes ago, and I just blinked and it is now suddenly December, the end of the year. It just goes to show that time goes by so quickly. I started taking time to review the things that I had planned to do or achieve this year, from the “New Year’s Resolution” list I outlined at the beginning of the year. If you are like me, I have felt constantly that I needed more than 24 hours in the day to tick off my “To do list” which had over one hundred outstanding tasks at any given time. Anyway, the good news is that I can start over again with a new list come January 2018. At least, that is my way of “Starting over again”.
Talking about “Starting over again”, I believe that God wants us to have a “To do” list which is less focused on what we want to achieve in the New Year. He wants us to focus on knowing Him more through his Word and time in prayer. It is interesting that Apostle Paul had this to say after so many years of knowing God, “That I may know him, and the power of his resurrection….. (Philippians 3:10)”
In the book of Matthew in the Bible, we read the story of wise men seeking the newly born saviour, Jesus Christ. They travelled far and wide, “looking for Jesus”. They eventually found him. This month we will be going through a teaching series at CFT Bristol Church, called, “Finding Jesus”. Some of the questions that we’ll be asking is, How are people trying to find Jesus? Why are you finding Jesus? Where can Jesus be found? Why was Jesus born?
Have a merry Christmas.
