The bible says, “Train up a child in the way he should go: and when he is old, he will not depart from it.” One of the things that any coach of any vocation will tell you is that it is important to have a solid foundation to start from. The fundamentals or foundation, will determine how much can be built and what can be built. As a youth coach for different sports, it is more important to teach a young participant the right way to do things rather than filling them up with a lot of things to do without regard to proper technique. As a minister of the Gospel, it is imperative that the fundamentals of the faith be established in the teaching, preaching and carrying out the ministry of the church. As a child of God, it will benefit the kingdom, society and future generations for me to strive to improve my life each day according to what God’s Word says. Take advantage of this being the first day, of many, to a better and brighter future as you build on the foundation that has already been laid in Christ Jesus.
Every year is a new year. Every month is a new month. Every day is a new day. Every hour is a new hour. Every moment is a new moment. In other words, there is no better time than right now to begin the process of improving your life. You don’t have to wait until a certain day or date. You just have to make a decision and act on it. What we believe is often reflected in what we do. Faith is expressed thru works; therefore, bring your beliefs to life by doing something. Let the Word of God be your guide as you pursue with passion the things that you believe will improve your life.
Father I will not compromise. For Your Word illuminates my path. As I spend time with You in prayer, give me the courage to walk out my convictions. Amen!!!
