Pastor's Message for January
What is your hope for 2015?
Is it that you will be happy and have plenty of money?
Is it that you will be able to have secure employment, have good health, provide for your family and be able to manage the home mortgage repayments?
Or, is it that the world will become a better place without wars, famine, pestilence, and all those other things we see on the news that threaten our sense of safety and wellbeing?
There was a time when I did not give much thought to what lay ahead. There was a time when I was content to merely live for the moment in the here and now, without any responsibility or accountability. This was the time when I was rather fatalistic and didn’t see that life had much of a future. That was, until I came to realise that life was far more than a collection of random coincidences. I came to understand that there IS a God, and that He has a purpose and a plan for my life. Since then my whole world view has changed and I look forward every day with meaning and hope in my life.
What is my hope for 2015? I have a very long list, and it includes having many conversations with people who are floundering and searching for significance in their lives. I can talk about God, and what the Lord Jesus can do for them, but ultimately it is for each one to make their own decision. My hope is that YOU will make the right decision, and begin to experience a new life filled with hope.
