A New Beginning

In the beginning God created the heavens and the earth. Genesis 1:1

In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. John 1:1

It was my first sermon at Camp Darby, Italy and everyone was wondering what kind of chaplain they just inherited. What’s his flavor, what will he preach, will he be boring? I introduced myself, “I am a sinner saved by the grace of God through His Son the Lord Jesus Christ.” I was out of the starting block and there was no doubt where I was headed. New beginnings are important. They set the tone for the future. Our beginnings can usher in hope, direction, and strength providing we start with Christ. When we make the Lord the center of our lives, we can anticipate good things to come. SP224
