Give us this day. Four simple words from the Lord’s Prayer. This will be the focus at Maple UMC during 2021. We will look at some of the overarching themes–some of the gifts–that God has made known to us through His Word.
Our theme for this first Sunday of the new year is simply this–
Give us this day–NEW LIFE.
When we accept Jesus as Lord and Savior, He transforms our old and sinful life into a brand new one.
Many of us make resolutions and promises for the new year as an attempt to become a better person. These are a good attempt, but God wants more. God doesn’t want us to be “better.” He wants us to be NEW. He wants our complete transformation into the Christian life to show to everyone around us. He is ready to give us NEW LIFE.
