It is shocking that I am shocked every year at how fast the year went by! 2018 is almost here and 2017 is almost in the books. A new year is a God-given opportunity for personal reflection and evaluation. What does it take to have a great year? Does it come from the power of positive thinking? Is a great year simply the result of random fate or luck? Is it solely dependent on the shear determination of my will to do better or be better this next annum? For the child of God, every year can be a great year because God’s offer of grace never changes! Because of Jesus Christ’s redemption for us, our heavenly Father offers to us the components that make for a great year. As we near the precipice of the new year we long for a year of success, satisfaction, joy, and a happy new year. In Isaiah 55, the prophet invites us to turn from the emptiness of vain pursuits to the source of true satisfaction in Jesus Christ. The best part about this offer is that the price has already been paid to purchase for us the sources of true satisfaction that will sustain us in 2018 and every year following. Join us this Sunday as we rejoice in the goodness of God’s rich blessing offered to us in Isaiah 55.
