Welcome to 2020, a year filled with God’s plans, purpose, and blessing. There is something greater than merely surviving here on earth. We are running a race. Our race has a heavenly prize; eternity spent in the presence of God.
Philippians 3:13-14, NLT
“No, dear brothers and sisters, I have not achieved it, but I focus on this one thing: Forgetting the past and looking forward to what lies ahead, I press on to reach the end of the race and receive the heavenly prize for which God, through Christ Jesus, is calling us.”
Reach out to those around you
2020 will no doubt have its challenges and victories, but press on there is a heavenly prize awaiting us who finish our race. Let our focus be on that prize. As we run our race, God brings people across our paths. These people are not hindrances or distractions. They are opportunities for God to use us to love them by spreading the Gospel of Jesus Christ in words and by our actions. Let us focus and press on to reach the end of our race as we reach out to those around us!
