A Better Me?

Dear Redemption City Family,

Happy New Year!

I am assuming that during this time of year many of us have made and/or are working through New Year’s Resolutions. It’s the one time of the year where we try to meaningfully reflect on the past year and renew focus on the new year. While making new resolves are important and I think necessary, I’m reminded that many of us are mostly motivated by regret and not God’s grace.  

What is 2016 going to look like for you? Will it look like a commitment to a better self through self-improvement or a better self through confession, repentance, and faith? What if 2016 was more about knowing Christ and pressing into the future rather than dwelling and living from the past?  

As we enter 2016, let's not be consumed with the kind of person we want to become this year but rather the person we are becoming for eternity.

This is our first Sunday gathering of the year. I pray many of you will join us. Lets begin the year with our hearts full and our eyes set on Jesus. 

Christ is All, 
Pastor Juan
