Celebrate But Do Not Get….
At this time of the year, it is important to remind ourselves not to get carried away with the celebrations.
Ephesians 5:18 (GNT) says “Do not get drunk with wine, which will only ruin you; instead, be filled with the Spirit.”
Rather than engage in drinking thereby getting drunk and doing all sort of things we normally won’t have done, let us make use of this season to thank God like we have never done before for all he has done for us this year, especially for keeping us alive and let us also use it to prepare our 2015 the way we want it to be.
This is not a season of just drinking and eating, it is a season of reflection and thanksgiving.
You might ask what is there to be thankful of but being alive is more than enough reason to be thankful. Someone said “if you think it is your alarm that woke you up in the morning, try putting it beside a dead man“. This simple words speak volumes and shows that most times, we take the grace of God for granted. We always seek to explain things the way it will sound good to our hearing and believable to others.
As this year comes to an end, I pray that Gods goodness and mercy shall follow us into the coming year and all through our life. 2015 shall be the best year ever for we all and all our loved ones.
God bless you and I wish you a happy 2015 in advance.
