Philippians 2:12-13; 3:13-14

The new year is an opportunity for us to reassess our life journey (including our spiritual walk) and plan our path going forward - of course many things are not in our direct control but we still can set a direction to follow. It is along this line that the Apostle Paul encourages the church of Philippi. Don't get stuck in the past. Keep pressing on in your faith so that you become disciples of Christ who are mature and replete with his love, peace, compassion and joy.
