“New Year, Same Promises –
Part 2: God’s Promise of Faithfulness”
Rev. Matt Randolph
An Epiphany Sermon Series:
“New Year, Same Promises”
The First through Sixth Sundays after Epiphany (January 8th - February 12th) Each year we look at the New Year as a time to make changes in our lives, by making promises to become more of who we want to be.
Unfortunately most of the time, the promises that we make to ourselves do not quite pan out. Whether because of life circumstances or our own humanness, we break those promises. We thus get frustrated with ourselves, and even carry a level of disappointment for failing to mold ourselves into the image of who we think we should be.
However, what if I told you that there is a different image to which we are all being called? It is an image to which we are constantly being molded by a series of promises that never get broken. They are God’s promises.
Join us for the next six weeks as we explore these eternal promises and the image that God intends for our lives!
