Greetings in Christ! Welcome to the Sunvalley Church website!
We appreciate you taking the time to visit our church site in an effort to get to know our church.
If I could just capture your attention for just a moment or two and allow me to share with you a simple thought for this New Year 2020.
What is it about a New Year that intrigues you so?
The very idea of something NEW reminds me of a child who has just received a new toy. The excitement of receiving something that has never been used, it has never belonged to anyone else. The fact that it stands apart from ALL the other toys BECAUSE of its newness is really an extraordinary gift indeed.
If you stand back, in retrospect, this is how we are with the New Year to come. We as humans crave a NEW beginning, some of us more than others (depending on the variables of LIFE). It is in our nature to desire what has never been used because we desire to be the FIRST. Most of all, we as human beings yearn to stand apart, to be unique or to posses that which is different from all else (be it talents, opportunities, degrees etc...).
Newness is seen FOR US ALL as a form of beginning again - out with the old year 2019, in with the new year 2020. New goals and ambitions will be set, it’s a fact. It is in our design to be ambitious especially with new opportunity.
Now that I’ve laid the excitement for the New Year for you, let me now bring it into a Spiritual perspective. God gave us his son, Jesus born on Christmas so that we might have the opportunity to begin again Spiritually, to become NEW in Him. II Corinthians 5:17, “Therefore if any man [be] in Christ, [he is] a NEW creature: old things are passed away; behold, all things are become NEW.” Before anything new can begin, the Spiritual aspect of a man must first be evaluated and rejuvenation needs to take place. Micah 6:8, “He hath shewed thee, O man, what is good; and what doth the Lord require of thee, but to do justly, and to love mercy, and to walk humbly with thy God.”
Newness didn’t stop with just the spiritual. What is inward reveals itself outwardly. We as humans desire the physical aspect. To be able to start over a new. Life isn’t easy, some years contain much struggle, turmoil, heart breaks, challenges, consequences etc....Some years the storms seem to swallow up our blessings. In such conditions and situations we simply desire to start a fresh and a new, to begin again. Well, the opportunity has been given us in what we now call the NEW YEAR; our chance to establish memorials and begin a new physically has come in what is NOW today 2020. 2019 is behind us. 2019 Christmas Day is behind us. The gift of newness spiritually and physically is now before us. Are you ready? Ready to begin again and see what 2020 has—to see what that Christmas gift (Jesus) has in store for YOU, your FAMILY, and your CHURCH?
So, getting back to my question, “What is it about the NEW YEAR that intrigues you so?”
Isaiah 43:19, “Behold, I will do a new thing; now it shall spring forth; shall ye not know it? I will even make a way in the wilderness, and rivers in the desert.”
Newness is indeed an exciting opportunity,
Happy New Year and God Bless.
