New Year

Jesus Makes All Things New Again


Monday – Read Ecclesiastes 3:14. How does your belief in God’s eternity affect your daily attitude and faith walk?

Tuesday – Read Matthew 25:34. Are you on his right because of what you do, or do you do what you do because you are on his right?

Wednesday Read Ecclesiastes 3:1. Are you fearful about the future? Impatient? Angry about how things are going right now? How does God help us to cope and better understand his timing?

Thursday – Read 2 Peter 3:8. Ponder this verse and see if it can help you let go of any anxiety you have about time – running out of time, waiting, being in a hurry – let God have control of your time resource, and see how he can make enough time for you to praise Him, and do those other things.

Friday – Read  Psalm 40: 1-2. The Psalms are rich with passages about waiting on the Lord – how can waiting strengthen our faith? What can we do while waiting on the Lord to glorify Him?

Saturday – Read Romans 5:6-8. How has God’s timing affected your life? Think about the people and circumstances that lead you to Jesus, and how He does not wait for us to come to Him or to change – he saves us when we are most unable to do anything to save ourselves – but what comes afterwards.

If I Only Had One Day To Live


Monday: Read Psalm 118:24. Think on the verse as you practice a "breath prayer." As you breathe in pray, "This is the day that the Lord has made." As you breathe out pray, "Let us rejoice and be glad in it." As you think about the start of a new year, what has you rejoicing?

Tuesday: Read Psalm 84:10. Following the psalmist's train of thought, what does time in worship in God's house top in your life? Is there anything in your life that tops time God's house in worship? Why?

Wednesday: Read 1 Chronicles 16:23. How has God acted in your life in the past year? With whom are you sharing the good news of all that He has done?

Thursday: Read Acts 5:42. Who are you praying for to come to know Jesus this year? How can we at Christ Lutheran help? (Let us know on your connection card!)

Friday: Read Joshua 24:15 and Matthew 25:40. Where did God lead you to server with His love last year? What was your experience of serving? Where might God be calling you to serve others? Whom can you invite to go with you to bring Christ's love in works and words?

Saturday: Read 1 Peter 4:1-2 and Galatians 6:9.  As you look back to last year, where do you remember God giving you the strength to persevere?  As you look at the year ahead, where might you need an extra measure of God's persevering Spirit?
