2020 has brought unprecedented challenges. It has not been easy, but we have persevered.
Along with the challenges have come many opportunities for sharing the gospel we didn’t have before, for which we thank God.
Many have had extra time for reflection and readjustment of priorities. Renewing and revitializing relationships, including deepening their relationship with God. Sometimes we have to look for the bright side, but it is generally there.
But thanks be to God, who always leads us in Christ’s triumphal procession and through us spreads the aroma of the knowledge of him in every place.
2 Corinthians 2:14 CSB
It is not about money, career, prestige, or anything else that does not have God at its center, is it?
He has gotten our attention.
For those of you who have watched loved ones languish in nursing homes or hospitals, or have had to say goodbye to near and dears, our hearts go out to you. Let’s don’t forget to remember all of these in prayer. The pain doesn’t go away because it is a new year.
To the families and friends of fallen police officers and service people, you are in our hearts and prayers, and we are in your debt.
It is impossible to list every people group that is grieving as we leave 2020, but know that God loves you, and we care about you and the details of your life. Know that you are loved. ❤️
Turn to Jesus. He’s waiting for you.
“This is how much God loved the world: He gave his Son, his one and only Son. And this is why: so that no one need be destroyed; by believing in him, anyone can have a whole and lasting life. God didn’t go to all the trouble of sending his Son merely to point an accusing finger, telling the world how bad it was. He came to help, to put the world right again. Anyone who trusts in him is acquitted; anyone who refuses to trust him has long since been under the death sentence without knowing it. And why? Because of that person’s failure to believe in the one-of-a-kind Son of God when introduced to him.
