A small boy was excitedly opening a toy automobile, but found it needed and required a good deal of assembly. Try as he might, he could not get the car put together, and with a cry, threw some of the pieces across the room. The frustration of not being able to accomplish what seemed simple was devastating to the boy.
Attempting to live a good Christian life can be just as frustrating sometimes. It seems like it should be easy, but as hard as we try to live as God would want, we find that we can’t quite do it. We need help. We need instruction. God gives us that instruction if we would only seek it. Through prayer, Scripture, and the support of fellow Christians we can gain special insights which make living the Christian life much easier and more fulfilling. What seems impossible on our own becomes a pleasure when we have help. We are never alone in our Christian journey. We are given one another, and we are even in touch with God’s Holy Spirit.
My prayer is that you will have a blessed and productive New Year with your families, friends, and of course, your church family.
In Christ’s Love,
