Taking a Lesson from Jesus
If you’re looking for something to begin focusing on this upcoming year, how about taking a lesson from Jesus? In John:8:29, regarding His relationship with His Father, Jesus declared, “…I do always those things that please him.” Given the perfect holiness of God, it’s hard to believe that we could please Him. We are told, however, that we can be confident that our obedience to God’s Word results in doing those things that are “pleasing in His sight” (1 John:3:21-22).
Our prayer for all who follow Jesus is that throughout the year ahead we might live out the testimony of Enoch: “He pleased God” (Hebrews:11:5).
