Words For the New Year

Happy New Year!

What are you hopes and dreams for the new year? Of course, the new year always brings about this kind of response. We like fresh starts.

Whether it is because of the new year or because it is just where I’m at, these words keep coming up.

Freedom

Fullness

Christ

It is for freedom that Christ has set us free. Galatians 5:1

“It is a question of the freedom of God, which finds it strongest evidence precisely in that God freely chose to be bound to historical human beings and to be placed at the disposal of human beings. God is free no from human beings but for them Christ is the word of God’s freedom.” Dietrich Bonhoeffer

For in Christ all the fullness of the Deity lives in bodily form, and you have been given fullness in Christ. Colossians 2:9-10

In Christ there is freedom. Because Christ is the fullness of God, when we have Christ we have the same fullness to live in freedom.

This is simple, revealed yet still to be fully explored. A good way to start the new year.
