Pastor's Thoughts (January 1st)
“We love because he first loved us.” 1st John 4:19
As I think on this Scripture, I realize that I can only love when I accept the love God gives me. I cannot truly love without the love of God.
We are in 2022. It seems to me, I blinked and 2021 is gone. It was a difficult year for me and my family. I am in fourth year at Highland Park. I’m so thankful for all of you. Your prayers have given me strength to continue during the hard times I have faced this past year.
All of this is because of the love you have because you live in God’s love and know what 1st John 4:19 means. The love of God is powerful and true.
I don’t make New Year’s resolutions anymore. I try to live in the light of God’s love as revealed to me through Jesus each day. I pray that 2022 is a year that I can grow in God’s love more. I pray that when people see me, they see Jesus in me.
I pray for each one of you that God’s love will grow in your heart more and more each day.
Blessings to each in the New Year!
