The Second Sunday of Christmas - New Years Revolution

11 In him we were also chosen, having been predestined according to the plan of him who works out everything in conformity with the purpose of his will, 12 in order that we, who were the first to put our hope in Christ, might be for the praise of his glory. 13 And you also were included in Christ when you heard the message of truth, the gospel of your salvation. When you believed, you were marked in him with a seal, the promised Holy Spirit, 14 who is a deposit guaranteeing our inheritance until the redemption of those who are God’s possession—to the praise of his glory. Ephesians 1:11-14

Christianity is a change in direction.

Therefore we must progress beyond the elementary instructions about Christ and move on to maturity, not laying this foundation again: repentance from dead works and faith in God, 2 teaching about ritual washings, laying on of hands, resurrection of the dead, and eternal judgment. Hebrews 6:1-2

It is not good to have zeal without knowledge, nor to be hasty and miss the way. Proverbs 19:2

  • Not what you can fix - but what he already defeated
  • Not what you can do - but what he already did
  • Not what you can lose - but what you get to gain
  • Not what you can accomplish - but what he completed
  • Not how you can live in 2022 - but how you can die so that He can live in you
