As we look forward into 2012, let’s focus on what is important. Christ said not to worry about tomorrow, that each day has enough trouble of it’s own (Matthew 6:24). That being said let’s live life day by day, diligently following Christ and trying to keep the faith and a good conscience (1 Tim. 1:5,19). In all things, let’s follow Christ and stay full of the Holy Spirit, in order that we will always be prepared for His unexpected return (Matthew 24-25). There are some who say the world will end in 2012, but Jesus Christ said that no one will know the day or hour (Matthew 24:36). So whether Christ returns today, or in 100 years, let’s always remain focused on what is important: living like Christ Jesus by faith. May our resolution always be to be prepared for His coming, day in and day out, so we can hear Him say, “Well done, my good and faithful servant! You have been faithful with a few things; I will put you in charge of many things. Come and share your master’s happiness!” (Matthew 25:21,23).
May God’s everlasting grace be with you and yours everyday, from 2012 until forever.
