Another year is nearly over. It's been a year of chaos around the world. Storms brewing in the weather and in governments. Things are quickly changing. Fears are rising.
It seems our world is beginning to unravel at nearly every level. And yet, this year offers a new excitement for the Christian. Each day tells us Christ is coming...it may be today.
Yes, it's the end of a year, but a new one begins tomorrow. 2015 will be remembered in different ways, each of us celebrating high points or glad to be done with the low points. Babies born, friends dying. Marriages begun, others ending. As Solomon said, "There is nothing new under the sun."
Another year is past. The end has come. Tomorrow we begin anew. I look forward to the day when eternity begins and the years of sorrow are over. Soon, history as we know it will end and eternity will begin. But until then we have another day to live for the God who made us.
May we live to glorify him. There is no better way to begin a new year.
