Days, Years, and Our 2022 Schedule January 1, 2022

Welcome to 2022! Moses wrote that “we spend our years as a tale that is told” and today we have begun another chapter in that story. In that same Scripture, Psalm 90, the emphasis is actually on days. The word is found five times and is a reminder that years are made up of days. If you want to make the most of the new year then you must make the most of every new day God gives you!

So teach us to number our days, that we may apply our hearts unto wisdom” (Psalm 90:12).

An average life of 78 years is made up of 28,490 days, if you include leap years. That sounds like a lot until you live a few of those years. Of course, the greater truth is that all of us can figure up how many days we have lived but only God knows how many days we have left. What will you do with the days the Lord allows you to live?

On this first day of 2022 I am preaching to a group of single adults in Atlanta, Georgia. Most days this year I will either be preaching somewhere or on my way to preach somewhere. We desire your prayers more than ever as we give ourselves to the work of the gospel and an emphasis on revival. By God’s grace, I want to make every day count.

For several years we posted our monthly itinerary in an article at the beginning of each month. I am happy that this year we are able to share the full 2022 preaching schedule on our website. There will be some adjustments I am sure (not everything goes as planned!). But I hope it will encourage you to join us in one of the meetings and to pray for us in each of them. You can find the calendar at enjoyingthejourney.org/events. Click on individual meetings to find more details or you may choose to reach out to the host church.

Let’s all determine to speak to others about Christ every day. Remember that you don’t have to be in a special meeting to preach the gospel. May the Lord bless you and make you a blessing each day in the coming year!

My mouth shall shew forth thy righteousness and thy salvation all the day; for I know not the numbers thereof” (Psalm 71:15).

The ruins of the Castle of the Servant in Jordan. The historian Josephus wrote that the dynasty of Tobiah built a castle on the east side of the Jordan River, in Ammon. He specifically wrote in the Antiquities of the Jews about the carved "beasts of gigantic size" visible here on the left corner of the structure. The beasts on the right side are not as well-preserved. The structure dates to the centuries after Nehemiah, however it shows the power and prestige of this family of "servants."

The Mountain of the House, also known as the Temple Mount, with the Mount of Olives in the background.
Some of the steps in the foreground date from the Second Temple period, and would have been the steps Jesus ascended. Archeologists have uncovered around 300 baptismal pools along the steps leading up to the Temple. They would be convenient for baptizing 3,000 people!
The Hebrew word ruakh can mean either spirit, wind, or breath. The Breath of God, the Spirit of God, and the Wind of God are all understood to be cognates.
