I remember being the lone voice in high school to stand and say “No! We will not do this.” I remember seeing unethical practices at my first job and telling the boss “This is wrong”. It felt like standing on a cliff-edge of doom but hearing Jesus saying “Jump! I’ve got you.”

Check out Psalm 46 (http://bit.ly/2SMeZgN)

Following Jesus may take you to places that are dark and scary. So shine – after all, light belongs in dark places. Where He leads, He enables. That may mean some recharging time in the strong tower of his Word.

Hebrews 10:35 (http://bit.ly/2SMWFnD)

“Although my memory’s fading, I remember two things very clearly: I am a great sinner and Christ is a great Saviour”. This is from the same guy who wrote “Amazing grace. How sweet the sound that saved a wretch like me. I once was lost but now I’m found. Was blind but now I see” – John Newton.

“For Christ died for sins once for all, the righteous for the unrighteous, to bring you to God” 1 Peter 3:18 (http://bit.ly/2SKxz8Z). That is the steadfast and secure platform from which we, as followers of Jesus, launch our daily lives. So, seeing as you have that absolute assurance, “live a life worthy of the Lord” Colossians 1:10 (http://bit.ly/2SSrqb9).

Read Romans 10:14-15 (http://bit.ly/2QmhN6S)

Verses 14-15 reminds us that people cannot come to know Jesus unless they are told about Him and for that to happen someone must be sent to share the Good News. It goes on to say how beautiful are the feet which bring Good News.

If I truly believe in Jesus and salvation, I will share Him with others. My commitment for 2019 (and it would be amazing if you decided to do the same) is to make my feet beautiful, not with a pedicure but by sharing God’s Good News with others.

Let’s make 2019 a year of telling the Good News.

Read Romans 10:10-13 (http://bit.ly/2GzeyVW)

In the news we often read about people who are murderers, who are corrupt and people who have abused others etc. and verse 13 challenges me to remember that these people can know Jesus.

‘Anyone who calls on the Lord will be saved.’

God’s salvation is not limited to those who have a certain life style or do specific things, it does not discriminate. It is accessible for all, it is about believing in Jesus before behaving for Jesus. In 2019 how will you, a Jesus follower, share the possibility for salvation for everyone.
