The Week Ahead

As we set sail on the New Year, take inspiration from Mark Twain who said one time, “Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things you didn’t do than by the ones you did do. So sail away from the safe harbor. Catch the trade winds in your sails. Explore – Dream – Discover.” Happy New Year my friends!

For the first week of the New Year, we will continue the study of the book of Romans and share more thoughts.

Below are some questions for reflection. 

Romans 12:1-8
* How does Paul’s appeal relate to the new status you have in Christ (See 6:1-7:6)? What disciplines are you exercising to renew your body and mind? How can you show today that you are a member of the body of Christ and one another?

Romans 12:9-21
* What main ideas are expressed and emphasized? What would be the specific results in a society that obeyed them? How will you obey them today?



For this New Year, believe that God has a great plan for you.

Victory starts by having a plan. By accepting God’s plan for us, all we need to do is follow and believe He will provide the power. He will give the upper hand to make what seems impossible possible.
