What does God want you to focus on in 2022?
This is the eighth year we, as a church, have participated in the One Word year focus. What is “One Word?” One Word is the Pantano alternative to New Year’s resolutions. While New Year’s resolutions can be good, we know they are not as effective as focusing on one thing for a whole year.
For the first time, we have a church One Word this year: Rooted. In 2022 our focus will be on growing deep spiritual roots. The scripture that helps us focus on this word is found in Colossians 2:6-7 – So then, just as you received Christ Jesus as Lord, continue to live your lives in him, rooted and built up in him, strengthened in the faith as you were taught, and overflowing with thankfulness. This year we want our faith to be strengthened as we are more deeply rooted in Jesus.
We ask you to prayerfully choose One Word that helps you be rooted in Jesus. Ask yourself these questions: What does God want me to focus on this year? In what way do I need to be more rooted, strengthened, or go deeper in my faith? What One Word would capture the change God wants to make in me or through me?
We prayerfully pick One Word that represents the change or the focus God wants for us. It should be more than a good thing or idea. It should be a God thing or idea. Don’t get a good word; get a God word.
