What are we expecting in 2018?

What are we expecting in 2018?

There was a man called Moses who went to work one morning expecting just another ordinary day. During that day, he saw a burning bush and met God who invited him to join him in an amazing adventure.

Moses was to lead God’s people out of Egypt and in doing so, he would become a shepherd of people rather than of sheep.

What are you expecting from this new year?

What are you expecting from God?

Are we expecting something new or just the same old, same old?

God wants to do a new thing but is this what we want?

Moses was never the same again and I hope and pray that 2018 would become a year of change and a real journey of faith for those of us who call ourselves followers of Jesus.

Moses met God because he went to see how a bush could be on fire without burning up. May we learn to look for signs of God at work and when we think we see them may we have the courage to go and to have a closer look. As we encounter God, we and those around us will be changed!

So, what are you expecting from this new year?

You can read more about Moses and his encounter with God in Exodus 3-4.
