Ringing in the new year may come with countdowns and noisemakers. Many of us may also set resolutions for ways that we plan to be better as the new year begins. Whether or not we ring in the new year with noisemakers and resolutions, we should always strive to be peacemakers preparing a harvest for God!
No matter the paths that our lives take in the new year, we have choices that will either lead to confrontation or to peace. We need to be grounded in God and His Word in order to respond in ways that will show love and lead to peace. We can call on God and be filled with His Spirit. In turn, we can find ways to share God's love and redemption throughout the new year. We can be noisemakers for God's love in order to be peacemakers for His Kingdom!
Be a "noisemaker" that shares God's love and works as a peacemaker in His name!
Thank You for the love that You have shown me throughout this past year. Help me to share this love in order to be a peacemaker for You. In Jesus' name I pray, amen.
