Sermon for January 1st, 2017
With a New Year upon us we reflect on our lives. We think about things that need to get done, and stuff that we need to stop doing. We make resolutions that last a few weeks and then we somehow drop them. In 2017 we need a new outlook.
Today we read in scripture that Jesus receives his name. It is the name by which we are saved, thats because Jesus means God Saves.
We need to stop trying to do it all by ourselves and in our our power. God is the one who changes our hearts and lives. God has given us a new name…Beloved (Loved Ones)
Listen to the message and be challenged by God’s Word.
