Let it come to a boil first before setting it in concrete, but pretty sure that, as a part of my mission statement, my Bible verse for 2018 will be Rom 5.5.
And hope does not disappoint, because the love of God has been poured out in our hearts through the Holy Spirit who was given to us.
It contains the note of love, which was the theme of 2017 for us. It mentions the Holy Spirit, who is the focus for this year. It highlights the action of God, which is always good.
