Good morning Friends! I hope you all had a glorious day celebrating the birth of Jesus. It’s been a fun month, we’ve listened to all my favorite Christmas songs. I hope you enjoyed them as much as I did. Now we’re going to transition into reflecting on this year and getting ready for 2021.
If you have not purchased your own hard copy of Common Sense Reborn Daily Devotional 2021 yet, click here so you can follow our reading and workout plans next year. We’re brainstorming how to make this year truly engaging for all of you, and we can’t wait to connect with everyone on this project.
I enjoyed doing a countdown so much I’m going to bless y’all with my Top 5! Worship songs of 2020, starting tomorrow. But I’m also going to be sharing some amazing new music that has come out over the last couple of weeks, starting with the new album from Jordan Feliz and this great song below, “Jesus is Coming Back.” He is friends, just not soon enough!
1And I saw an angel coming down out of heaven, having the key to the Abyss and holding in his hand a great chain. 2He seized the dragon, that ancient serpent, who is the devil, or Satan, and bound him for a thousand years. 3He threw him into the Abyss, and locked and sealed it over him, to keep him from deceiving the nations anymore until the thousand years were ended. After that, he must be set free for a short time. (Revelation 20:1-3)
We’ve spent the entire year studying the life and word of Jesus. These last few days we will look at how death and the devil are finally defeated. Take this time to cast out your demons. Throw your doubt, your depression, your insecurities, your anxiety, your loneliness, your heartbreaks, your anger, all your problems and issues into the Abyss. When the New Year starts, begin a new life, born into Christ!
Prayer and meditation: Pray that the Holy Spirit has infected this world like never before. Pray that the change you have experienced this year propels you to change the world around you in 2021!
Fitness challenge: stretch, rest, and recover
Saturday run: Last 6.2 miles (10K) of the year! You have all those holiday calories to burn off! You better set a new personal best.
Serve Day: If the last two days did not get you motivated to get out and serve, you missed the whole point of this entire year!
