New Years.

The time when everyone is ready to make resolutions. We vow to do better, be better, live better. Those are all noble pursuits, but let me challenge you instead. In 2018, PRESS.

Press toward.

Press on.

Press through.

Struggling with your faith? Press toward God.

Struggling with difficult circumstances? Press through.

Struggling with the daily grind, wondering when God is going to do something miraculous in your life? Press on.

To press is to put our weight on or up against something else. As Christians, that something is Christ. He is the rock we lean up against, look toward and have faith in. As we press on, our joy is deepened, our faith is strengthened and Christ’s will for our lives is illuminated.

This year I challenge all of you.


“I press on toward the goal to win the prize for which God has called me heavenward in Christ Jesus.” Philippians 3:14.
