Central to the Christian message is the idea that a new world is arriving among the present one. That God's kingdom has arrived, is arriving, and will arrive. Part of the Christian life, then, is learning how to live as God's new version of ourselves as God is renewing creation all around us. Today, we'll engage in a conversation about how we do that in day and age.
When an archer draws his bow, he begins by looking behind and pulling from his quiver. He then draws back the bowstring, takes aim, and looses the arrow. The Christian life is similar. Looking at the legacy of those who came before and our own spiritual journey, we are poised to look to the future and aim to honor him with our lives.
When we identify the end goal of the trajectory we hope to achieve, we need a role model. Becoming like Jesus means we need Him to transform us.
SCRIPTURE: 2 Corinthians 3:17–18
Starting a new year often calls us to turn the page, not only on the calendar, but in life. The trajectory we seek for life demands particular tools for our success.
SCRIPTURE: 2 Timothy 1:3–7
