New Beginnings

As we enter this new year we make resolutions that we endeavor to keep. The problem, however, is that we do not always keep them as we should…As God’s people called by his name, his resolution toward us is fresh and new each day! It is the message of the newborn King, living and reigning for you and for me! The Lord keeps his resolution to be our saving King and to renew and sustain us in faith each day of our lives!

The Lord says in the book or Revelation that he is making all things new. Indeed, he is. Paul says that being “in Christ” by faith makes us as God’s new creations. We are at once made new and being renewed by him in our faith in Christ. This happens as we hear his word and are nurtured in worship together. So, may 2017 be a year of new beginnings for us all! May the Lord call to himself his people. May he continue to gather in his kingdom among us all, as we continue to be renewed in his word and name!

God bless us at Saint John Lutheran Church!

2016 was a year of new beginnings for me. I accepted the call to serve the people of Saint John Lutheran church. My family and I moved to Connecticut and found a new home. This is now a time of new beginnings for us all as we begin a new year. New beginnings are important in our lives. It is refreshing to have opportunity for a fresh start!

And the one who was seated on the throne said, “See, I am making all things new.” - Revelation 21:5
