New Year's Eve Comments

Posted by Pastor Rob on January 1, 2014

Ecclesiastes chapter 3 starts off with "for everything there is a season and a time for every matter under heaven." On this night we take time to look back at what has happened in our lives. We all have experienced joys and losses.

In our cultural world we see a baby entering the world as Father Time leaves it. That shows you how much we age or wear out over the course of a year. For example, look at a president's picture at the beginning of his administration and at the conclusion of their time in serving.

You are no different during the year. You too have had great joy and probably great sorrows during this past year. This pattern has continued since Adam & Eve were thrown out of the garden by God due to their sins.

As we end the year 2013 take time to reflect backwards.
