Grace and Peace To You This New Year

And the LORD spake unto Moses, saying, Speak unto the children of Israel, saying, In the seventh month, in the first day of the month, shall ye have a sabbath, a memorial of blowing of trumpets, an holy convocation. Leviticus 23:23-24 (KJV)

We know this holiday as the feast of Trumpets from the Bible. It’s confusing to us because it is on the seventh month. The first month is the used for calculating kings reigns, but Tishri 1 (Rosh Hashanah) is the New Year for years when they increase the year number. Sabbatical and Jubilee years begin at this time.

Today is New Years on our calendar. It the beginning of a whole new year. Let’s blow the trumpets and celebrate the Lord’s goodness. Last year is a memory. I hope for you that it was mostly good.

This is a beginning. Most diets start at this time. People are setting New Year’s resolutions. We are doing our travel planning and have our destinations logged onto our calendars. There is expectation in the air. We aren’t limited by political, economic, or any other situation or problem. We look to Jesus as our source of health and wealth.

Let’s look to Jesus and see His great grace for us. Paul often started his letters with a pronouncement of blessing. Take this verse as your call to grow in grace this year.

“Grace be unto you, and peace, from God our Father, and from the Lord Jesus Christ. I thank my God always on your behalf, for the grace of God which is given you by Jesus Christ.” 1 Corinthians 1:3-4
