Exordium (Acts 3:17-26)

Good morning all,

The word of the day is “exordium.”  This is the day each year in which most of us think of the possibilities to come for a new turn in life.  Luke wanted the new church to understand that starting out in a correct manner is important for spiritual health.  He knew that the day of the Lord was going to come quickly and that the people needed to repent in order that they become right in the eyes of God.

Repent, then, and turn to God, so that your sins may be wiped out, that times of refreshing may come from the Lord, and that he may send the Christ, who has been appointed for you—even Jesus.
~Acts 3:19-20

My question is: do you resolutions for the New Year include a change in relationship with God?  I think that the Lord would call for each of us to repent of our sins and begin this year in a way that would set up our attitudes and hearts for Jesus to do some cool stuff in our lives.  My prayer is that you take some time to talk with God and ask for his forgiveness and his way in your life for this year.  I know God can do great things… if we only repent and live for him.

Praying for you,
