Xmas-tree-romans-15-13Maybe you’ve already taken down your tree, ready to be done with it all, and you’re moving back to life as usual. Let me encourage you to take a moment or two to study the tree image on the right. It looks like a Christmas tree, but the words that make it up and the blessing it contains can be a “tree of life” for you today, and all through the coming year! Don’t toss that truth out with the trappings of Christmas that you may be  pitching or packing away.

This news of great joy that we’ve been talking about through the Christmas season is meant to be continued, kept, worn, lived, and walked in! God desires for us to embrace a new life, not return to the old one. But the familiar routines of our pasts call to us continually. It takes effort to walk in new ways. We’re willing to try on new clothes, drive a new car, play with new toys, and all kinds of other changes in our lives, but following Christ into walking in the way that will truly honor Him is completely worth it! He wants to fill you with all joy and peace as you trust in Him. He wants you to overflow with hope by the power of the Holy Spirit! What a great time to accept His offer as we end one year and begin another. It’s not just a resolution; it’s a decision that will affect your life and the lives around you for God’s Kingdom and His glory!
