“But what about you?” he asked. “Who do you say I am?” Simon Peter answered, “You are the Messiah, the Son of the living God.”
January 1! The first day of a brand new year! A fresh start! It’s time to begin a new journey. It’s time to set our eyes in the right direction. It’s time to move ahead for the right reasons.
Today is the day to refocus, a day of new determination. On this first day of a new year let’s make Peter’s confession our own: Jesus, you are my Messiah, my Savior! Jesus, you are the Son of the living God! I resolve to follow hard after you!
Someone has well said that many people miss Jesus by twelve inches — the distance from their head to their heart. We need more than information; we need inspiration. We want more than head knowledge; we desire life transformation. Let’s begin this new year by asking God to help us fall in love with Jesus all over again.
Father, thank You for a new year. Keep the fire of my resolve burning. Keep my perspective fresh. Help me fall in love with Jesus all over again. I want to look back over this year and know that I have grown in my walk with You. I commit this year to You. You know everything it holds. My desire is to follow hard after You. In Jesus’ name. Amen.
