Greeting in Christ!
We are in the new year, the year 2020, in which many are hoping to be able to see clearly. For a lot of us, we look at the new year in anticipation as a fresh start and in the year 2020, we hope to navigate another year of decision making with clear sight. As so many of us are looking into our lives, possibly looking at those New Year’s Resolutions, I encourage each of us to look deeper into our hearts.
We may not have 20/20 vision but let us take upon ourselves this opportunity to start off the new year with a spiritual eye exam.
Ephesians 1:7-10 (NRSV) says, “ In him we have redemption through his blood, the forgiveness of our trespasses, according to the riches of his grace that he lavished on us. With all wisdom and insight he has made known to us the mystery of his will, according to his good pleasure that he set forth in Christ, as a plan for the fullness of time, to gather up all things in
him, things in heaven and things on earth.
The scripture focuses our sight onto salvation. The benefits of salvation received through Jesus Christ, in which God blessed us through the works of His Son, Jesus Christ. The knowledge of God, His love for each and every one of us, His
redeeming works, and His mission, His call for each of us, is made known.
May we open our eyes, our spiritual eyes on to God and His redeeming works, His for us. God has a purpose for you and me in the year 2020, let us not be hesitant on participating in being the church. Christ has completed His redemptive work, may
we work to share His glorious message of transforming love and grace.
In His Love,
