In this third message of 2023, pastor Bogdan Kipko reminds us that it's not too late to use the momentum of the New Year to continue strong in our resolution to follow Jesus! Jesus grew and developed physically and spiritually before he began his earthly ministry, taking time to study, listen, and learn. The gospel shows us that in order to grow spiritually, we must first learn to listen and seek God’s wisdom.
Let's get ready to find hope in Jesus, by listening to this message. We can have the best of intentions when it comes to serving the Lord, but if we’re not properly prepared in advance and if we’re not continually working toward our improvement through developing our relationship with Christ, then we risk facing discouragement, disillusionment, and spiritual burnout.
If we are to follow in Christ’s footsteps, we must begin like him: asking questions, seeking answers, and looking for God’s hand in all things. The more we press on in this way, the easier it becomes for us to take bigger steps and greater risks that help expand the kingdom of God.
