Every New Year’s Eve we hope the next year will be a reset and that this will finally be a “good year.” Unfortunately life doesn’t work that way. The good and the bad always come at us at the same time. Even though we can’t guarantee a ”good year,” Jesus offers us something better… a new beginning in the middle of our real life.
Who we want to be is really rooted in a desire to be a part of something bigger than just ourselves. And this need to belong can often result in an us vs. them mentality. And, for the reality is people usually reject the claims of Jesus because of the actions of those who say they follow him. But what if we flipped the script? What about if we decided to be known for what we are FOR rather than what we are against? Truly, the only person who can change that is WE.
When we were younger, we had dreams… big dreams… to have the ultimate career. A firefighter, an astronaut, a pizza cook… But then grew up and the bills grew.

We know… Happy relationships create a happy life. The problem is… being around people is hard. In part 2, we’ll take a closer look at the root of every relationship problem (whoa), and why there’s a gap between who we want to be and who we are in our relationships.
