Happy New Year! Each new year brings with it an opportunity to set new goals and consider what your focus will be before life gets in the way. Kings Kaleidoscope has a song set to the tune of the traditional new year’s song “Auld Lang Syne.” Their song “All Glory Be To Christ” reminds us ultimately what each new year is about…Jesus.

The song leads us to Psalm 127 where we are reminded that we are nothing without the Lord.
On this episode I discuss:
- Taking a B.I.T.E. out of Scripture – this week’s Bible Interaction Tool Exercises include:

This Week’s Challenge
Read Psalm 127 for yourself. While you do, make sure you don’t take each verse out of context…it is one song, after all. Ask questions, make observations, and fix your eyes on the Lord. Pray and ask Him to be the architect of your life this year. Determine in your heart to bring Him glory.
