Pastor Rob's Notes:
Some suggestions to help us pursue a new beginning this year.
1. We need to recognize the value of time.
“...a day is like a thousand years to the Lord and a thousand years is like a day." God deals with eternity, and therefore time is not an important factor with Him....2 Peter 3:8
The Bible also teaches us that life is uncertain. Time is like a valuable commodity in a very precious and delicate vessel. It might break at any moment and we might lose it all.
Because of the uncertainty of life, the Bible says,
"At just the right time I heard you, on the day of salvation I helped you." ...2 Corinthians 6:2
2. We can't be in bondage to the past.
"For the kind of sorrow God wants us to experience leads us away from sin and results in salvation. There’s no regret for that kind of sorrow. But worldly sorrow, which lacks repentance, results in spiritual death.”..2Corinthians 7:10
We are special beings in that God has given us the ability to remember. Your memory may be your friend or it may be your enemy.
3. We need to establish a priority in our lives.
Paul said: I press on to reach the end of the race...in order to receive the heavenly prize for which God, through Christ Jesus, is calling us.
They should include these: Each day drawing nearer to God, spending time with Him in prayer, and seeking His guidance for your life through reading His Word.
A New Beginning:
recognize the value of time...
don't be bound by the past...
establish a priority...
