A Sure Foundation for 202214/01/22
HAPPY NEW YEAR!
New Year is always a time of reflection and optimism. We look back on 2021 reflectively, with some wonderful memories made, but perhaps also with some disappointments and sadness. Looking forward to 2022 we have renewed hope, a fresh start, and optimism for a better future. Yet the truth is, there are still so many uncertainties and fear can lurk just around the corner.
How do we move forward, whilst we are still in a pandemic, have an unstable government, an unstable economy and so much more to worry about? Where do we pin our hope for the future… a hope that will never disappoint us or let us down? We can ask the question, is there anything absolute, certain and sure that we can pin our hope upon?
Hebrews 13:8 in the bible tells us, ‘Jesus Christ is the same yesterday, today and forever.’ He is the Unchanging One, the Creator and Sustainer of our lives. He is the sure foundation on which we can build our lives with certainty and not have to fear.
That is why it has been a joy this week to distribute over 200 New Testaments to our Year 7 pupils. Each one was received and my prayer is that they will build their lives, not on changing media culture, fashion, peer pressure or shifting circumstances, but on Jesus who promises them ‘Life and life in all its fullness’ John 10:10, The Bible
