Here in the early days of 2014, we’re in that tantalizing space of opportunity. The reflection we do at New Years is still fresh. We haven’t quite settled back into the habitual routine of life. We still feel like change can happen.
As I’ve asked people what they want for their new year, not one of them has said they want a worse year. No one has told me they plan on more relational brokenness, more stress, and more spiritual emptiness. Everyone talks with hope about a better year. I want that. I’m sure you do too.
If John 10:10 is to be believed, Jesus wants a better year for you also. He said, “I have come so that they may have life and have it in abundance.”
Abundant life sounds good, right? That’s something I’d like in 2014.
