Living the Life

Artwork for Living the Life: A New Year's Message

When the calendar turns and we face a new year, many of us ask ourselves common questions. What changes will take place in my life this year? What difference will I make in the next 12 months? What faces will I not see at this time next year? Each of these questions causes us to reflect upon the most significant things in life—growth, meaning, and life versus death. Since Jesus offered His people abundant life, it makes sense for His people to reflect on such significant thoughts. What better time for reflection on the big questions than at the start of a new year? Let’s take a look at one passage of Scripture that offers practical advice about changes we could all make to follow Christ more faithfully and love our neighbours more fully in the year to come.
