Hello Zion family and welcome to the first email newsletter of 2020. Can you believe that we've entered into a new year and a new decade! Although, as I shared on Sunday morning, I'm not a big fan of New Year's Resolutions, the start of a new year is still a great time to think through how Jesus has been working in your life.
That's why I shared the "10 Questions for a New Year" at our last Sunday service. I hope that these questions will spur you on as you seek to draw closer to Jesus this year.
The questions are:
What's one thing you can do this year to increase your enjoyment of God?
What's an impossible prayer you can pray?
What's the most important thin you could do to improve your family life?
In which spiritual discipline do you most want to make progress this year?
What's the single biggest time-waster in your life, and how can you redeem the time?
What's the most helpful way you could strengthen your church?
Whose salvation will you pray for this year?
What's the most important way, by God's grace, you will try to make this year different from the last?
What one thing could you do to improve your prayer life this year?
What single thin can you plan to do this year that will matter the most in 10 years? In eternity?
I'd again like to say thank you to Don Whitney, a seminary professor and author, for these questions. I hope that each of you will find them helpful as we enter into 2020.
January can be a strange time of the year... we've come through Christmas and it may seem like there isn't much happening. That's why it makes so much sense to spend some time praying together this month! Many of us have been involved in Prayer Triplets... and January is a great time to recommit to meeting together to pray for one another and our church.
