As we go into this new year, let us strive to be people of purpose.
Let us fill ourselves with a holy passion and fire as we go into this world and transform it for the cause of Christ.
Let us not love merely by our words, but our actions—conveying God’s love to each and every person that crosses our path.
Let us see people not simply as another face, or another name, but as a magnificent and glorious human being, created in God’s own image.
Let us carry this love to our schools, our workplaces, and our places of influence.
Let us turn this same love back on ourselves, and never forget our worth and value as children bought at a price by our Savior.
Let us never grow complacent with these truths, storing them away as simply an abstract belief or idea. Let us instead, live out a faith that sparks action.
Let us love loudly, live boldly, and worship passionately. Let us never let our faith become just another routine.
Let us live without regrets, and chase God honoring dreams, while still living fully and wholeheartedly in the present—in the time in between.
Let us never forget that we are a spark—a spark that can start a great fire.
And let us stay on fire—living as reflections of the One who has called us into His glorious light. Forever and ever, amen!
Now is the time. What are we waiting for?
