As 2021 starts, we pray for fresh beginnings and for restoration. We longingly anticipate days in which we can once again go about our lives without concern for sickness, disunity, or social upheaval.

When we look around at the world and society today, we wonder what's going on. Nothing has changed from the times described by the apostle Paul in his second letter to Timothy, when people sought only their own gain and pleasure and rejected Truth. But we have hope because God’s Word is powerful, and it shows us how to be faithfully effective in our church and our world.

Even though Timothy is facing challenges, some from within the church, Paul tells him not to be discouraged. He urges, “continue in what you have learned and have firmly believed,” reminding Timothy that God’s Word gives us everything we need to be “complete, equipped for every good work” (2 Timothy 3:14-17). This is just as true for us today as it was for Timothy.

I’d like to recommend a resource that might help you or someone you know build a firm foundation of faith in these uncertain times: The Case for Christ by Lee Strobel. As a journalist, attorney, and former atheist, Strobel conducted an all-out investigation into Christianity. The evidence he uncovered will help convince you as it did him, that God’s Word is true and trustworthy.

Thank you once again for standing with us as we begin a new year. Your gifts make it possible for us to continue sharing the gospel so many more can encounter Christ and be equipped for living God-centered lives.

Gratefully,
