What do you think is going to be added to your life this year?Last year we bought a new house, took possession of a new dog, I started a new university course and I got given a “not so new” Volvo! At the beginning of the year I didn’t expect any of these things to happen but as the year unfolded each was revealed.
A new year is a wonderful thing: I see it as a fresh start and a new opportunity.
Each year I like to learn something new, to read something new and to see something that I haven’t seen before. If we have investments we like to see them grow with each year that passes. If we own a home we like to see it appreciate in value. All of us love a salary increase and none of us regret having value added to our lives.
The Lord Jesus said “The thief (The devil) comes to steal, and to kill, and to destroy. I have come that they may have life, and that they may have it more abundantly.” John 10:10
The Lord Jesus did not come to take things away from you. He did not come to remove your life or to destroy the life you now have. He came so that you might receive added value in your life: That your life at the ending of this New Year, would be better than when it started.
What value can He add to you? Why don’t you invite Him to give you a first hand demonstration?
