PASTOR’S MESSAGE

 

Happy New Year 2022

 

Grace and Peace to you in the name of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. It is in Him we live, move, and have our being.

In ancient Roman religion and Greek mythology, they recognized a mythical god named Janus. Janus was the god of the beginnings and transitions. He represented the facilitation of gates, doorways, passages, and endings. Janus presided over the beginning and ending of conflicts. Janus was depicted as a god with two faces one head; and these two faces looked in the opposite direction of each other. It meant that one face looked in backwards as the other face looked forward. It is believed that Janus is the root from where we get the word January, the name of the first month of the year.

In January is when most people make resolutions for the new year. It is also the ideal time to look back and reflect on God’s work and Providence in our lives in 2021. However, it is also a time to look ahead and set a course for 2022. It is time to commence some things; but it is also a time to conclude some things.

My prayer for you in 2022 encompasses the following:

I pray that as God is beginning some things, you will walk in His strength to end some things. As you press towards the mark, you should also forget those things which are behind.

I PRAY THAT 2022 WILL BE A YEAR FOR NEXT LEVEL PREPARATION. You may be carrying within you a gift, ability, calling, vocation, or aspiration that you believe will catapult your life forward. If that’s you, you need not to worry about how God will manifest that which is within you.

I pray that 2022 will be a year for increased discipleship. Make this year that you will make a personal commitment to God to magnify your walk with Him. Commit to give God more of you in 2022. And that whatever happens in this year, we know God is in control.

 

Happy New Year,

Pastor Perucy N. Butiku
