Welcome to 2016! Is the future everything you thought it would be? Did you accomplish everything that you had wanted to with 2015? One of the secrets, or habits, to successfully reaching your goals is to “begin with the end in mind.” To that end, let us begin 2016 looking forward to where we want to be and what we want to have accomplished when New Year’s Eve rolls around again.
We won’t be talking about weight loss goals or retirement saving goals this Sunday, but we will begin the year by asking God what He wants from us in the new year and beyond. Tommy Tenney shared these challenging words in his classic God Chasers, “When you pursue God with all of your heart, soul and body, He will turn to meet you and you will come out ruined for the world.” So, set aside your old New Year’s resolutions and be prepared to be ruined for the world.
