Thought for the Day

01 January 2014

"As we contemplate a new year may we recognise that the truth and faithfulness of God and the constancy of His Word is all we need to sustain us in our journey to His promised Kingdom. We recognise how important it is truly to discern the Lord Jesus Christ ... and in every way in which he influences our lives, when we recall the words of John 6:40: "And this is the will of him that sent me, that everyone who sees the Son, and believes on him, may have everlasting life: and I will raise him up at the last day." May our shared act of remembrance help us to see with the eye of faith and believe with the heart of faith and so, by God's grace, may we end our journey sitting down with Abraham in the Kingdom prepared for the faithful from the foundation of the world."
