Do you have a New Year’s resolution? Are there goals you want to achieve this year? Are you starting a new adventure? Here are some thoughts based upon Matthew 2 and 3.
Jesus had a mission. He was to begin His ministry here on earth. How did He do it?
1. First he set his life right with God. He followed orders, was baptized, and received God’s blessing. Always begin with God.
2. He faced temptation. He spent 40 days searching his soul, facing Satan, and standing by His faith in God’s plan. Remember that your journey will not always be easy. Now aren’t you glad God is already with you?
3. He gathered support. Jesus found His disciples to take this journey with Him. Even Jesus enjoyed the moral support from His friends.
Think about how you are going to reach your goals this year! Remember, all things are possible with God.
