“Come to me all you who are weary, and burdened, and I will give you rest. Take my yoke upon you and learn from me, for I am gentle and humble in heart, and you will find rest for your souls. For my yoke is easy and my burden is light.” Matthew 11:28
I don’t know about you, but the days after Christmas bring a smile to my face, a little relief, some fatigue, but most importantly I am humbled by our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. Jesus is the reason for the season and keeping our faith focused throughout the season can be difficult. Christmas can bring out the best and worst in us; loving people and people pleasing, family togetherness and family dysfunction—the range of emotions can be significant.
How do you keep your faith vibrant and growing long after Christmas is over? Keeping Jesus first in our lives is the key. It doesn’t matter what season we are in; the love of Jesus surpasses all our expectations, his hope is our lifeline in time of need, his forgiveness has changed the course of our lives. As 2020 approaches bring everything you have to Jesus, the good and the bad and be amazed at how He will change your life, one day at a time, one season at a time. Happy New Year!
Therefore, I urge you, bothers, in view of God’s mercy, to offer your bodies’ as living sacrifices, holy and pleasing to God—this is your spiritual act of worship. Romans 12:1
