Goodbye 2007!

Today is the last day of the year 2007. This year God gave you 365 days to serve Him. I hope you used every day of 2007 to work for Him. But if you did not serve God every day, then this is a good time to start serving Him.
In our Bible Reading today, Paul tells us many ways we can serve God. We can show mercy and forgiveness. We can worship God. We can have right relationships with our family members and our co-workers.
In other Bible verses, Paul reminds us to use our time to serve God. In Galatians 6:10a, Paul said,
?When we have the opportunity to do good to any person, we should do it.? Paul wrote in Ephesians 5:16. ?I mean that you should use every chance you have for doing good, because these are evil times.? And in Colossians 4:5, Paul said, ?Use your time in the best way you can.”
Tomorrow a new year begins. So today you have the opportunity to examine your life. Think about how you can start serving God in 2008. Decide now to serve God every day of the New Year.
