Happy 2021! 2020 was such a historical year and now we find ourselves facing this new year.
Uncertainty has abounded but we have this certainty: Jesus Christ is coming back soon. There are three things that Jesus spoke about that He would want to find upon His return:
1) Will He find faith (Luke 18:8) i.e. His children living and walking by faith?
2) Will God’s children be in relationship with Him? We read this in the parable of the ten virgins (Matt 25) and the warning Jesus gave in (Matt 7:22-23).
3) Will Jesus find us “occupying” (Luke 19:13) or doing what God instructed us to do (Luke 12:43)?
Follow the Great Commission
As Christians, we all have been given the Great Commission to go and spread the Gospel of Jesus Christ to all people through our lives, words, and deeds (Matt 28:16-20).
Let 2021 be the year that we continue to live and walk by faith, continue to focus on our relationship with our Heavenly Father, continue to do what God has called us to do, and let us double our efforts to fulfil the Great Commission to GO!
