    January 27: A Fresh Start For Your Emotional Life

                   

    Few things shape us like what we think about our thoughts. Our thoughts might be true or false, healthy or destructive, demonic or Holy Spiritual, which means we need to think carefully about our thoughts! Paul made the same point to his friends in Corinth, urging them to take their thoughts captive and make them obedient to Christ. By that same practice, we put our frantic minds at ease and fix our thoughts on Jesus.

    January 20: A Fresh Start For Your Financial Life

                   

    Money is a good gift and a terrible god. When accumulating more and more becomes the center of our universe, we end up, according to Jesus, with darkness, worry, and eventual loss. But when we seek God first, satisfying our hearts with the presence ad promises of God, money finds it rightful place in our lives. Our loving Father can become our true treasure, freeing us from serving money and allowing us to use it wisely.

    January 13: A Fresh Start For Your Physical Life

                   

    “I believe in God the Father Almighty, maker of heaven and earth.” Billions of Christians have confessed these famous words, admitting that God is the creator and we are part of his creation. Yet many Christians forget this truth when it comes to their own bodies, ignoring the Creator’s guidelines as they overwork, overeat, and underestimate the necessity of rest. This message takes us back to the beginning, to physical life as God intended, and reminds us of the Father who gave us life and wants only what is best for his kids. In addition, it reminds us of the “image of God” that we have through Jesus, a spiritual reality that gives even our bodies peace and rest.

    Most people don’t equate repentance with the words “fresh” or “liberating.” Crying “God, have mercy on me, a sinner!” seems like a miserable way to start the year. But not according to Jesus. Jesus said that those who humbly confess their need of God’s grace (instead of self-righteously comparing themselves to others) would be justified and exalted in the eyes of God. Perhaps, then, repentance is the most liberating way to live!
