Happy New Year! I pray 2021 will be an improvement over 2020. But I know that while God sometimes acts alone, more often than not, God sticks to the original plan and chooses to work through or with us, the human beings made in God’s image. I think whether or not 2021 is better than 2020 will depend on what use we make of God’s grace. As Augustine of Hippo reportedly said, “He that made us without ourselves, will not save us without ourselves.” We can’t do it by ourselves, but it is unlikely that God will do it without us. Let’s get to work.
