A new year begins. Perhaps it offers new opportunities and possibilities. It certainly offers the chance to live differently even within realities that don’t change.

Your Christmas journey began with a step, and continues in just the same way. What are the steps you need to take today to turn intentions into reality?

It might be that you realise you need to change something you do or an attitude you have. You may have seen that you need to put something right, go and talk to someone or explore something further.

You might simply realise that this year needs to be lived differently, at a different pace, with space for reflection and prayer and with a desire to see God in your life.

You might also have seen that the heart of that change is Jesus Christ, born in Bethlehem, whose words and life speak to us today. By his Holy Spirit, he lives in us today and walks alongside us. #GodWithUs always.

When Jesus called the first disciples to follow him, he didn’t give them a manual or a pep talk, he simply said, ‘Come and see.’ Step out, walk with Jesus and see what happens.

When Jesus turned and saw them following, he said to them, ‘What are you looking for?’ They said to him, ‘Rabbi’ (which translated means Teacher), ‘where are you staying?’ He said to them, ‘Come and see.’

What is your first step today to live differently?
