Welcome! Term 4 seems to be the craziest time of the year, don’t you reckon? It often feels like life is just happening to you, out of control, and all you can do is hold on and hope for January. It’s a time, maybe even more so than other times, when Jesus – that’s the LORD Jesus – can easily get ignored and lost in all the fuss of the end of year and Christmas and all that…
But it shouldn’t be like that, it doesn’t have to be like that, and if we know what’s good for us, we’ll make sure that THIS term 4 it’s not like that either. Because according to Hebrews 8-13, which we’re digging into this term, LIFE IS BETTER WITH JESUS. Not in the dumb way that you might’ve heard some people talk about that makes Jesus out to be just some heavenly Santa Claus. Life is better with Jesus because Jesus is better than anything else this life has to offer! Seriously – he’s WAY better!
So I’ve got an idea. Before term 4 gets out of hand (and you know it will!), decide now how you’re going to make time for Jesus. I mean, make a plan and plan to stick to it. And as part of that plan, why not commit to making it to every week of your small group or DNA this term. That way, you’ll not only be encouraged yourself to discover why life is better with Jesus but you’ll be encouraging others as well.
