Word of the Day:Faith in the New Year
Faith in Christ will keep us steady in the stormy sea of change. A couple was aboard on their boat as they prepared to celebrate their new year when a violent storm struck. They were however able to send their family and friends a reassuring message of their safety.
Jesus’ disciples also encountered a stormy experience. They were on the Sea of Galilee when they were caught by a storm. It was so violent that even though they were experienced fishermen, they feared for their lives. Jesus however saved them by calming the storm.
No one can predict with certainty how the New Year will be whether it will be a smooth sail or a stormy beginning. But one thing we are sure of is the presence of Jesus in our lives. Jesus, who did not fail us in the past, will not fail us in the future.
“But now, this is what the LORD says—he who created you, O Jacob, he who formed you, O Israel: Fear not, for I have redeemed you; I have summoned you by name; you are mine.”
