Every year as talk New Year's resolutions appear at the end of December, I think this very same thing: I don't like resolutions! That may seem strange for many people, and I totally understand that it might. But, just for a moment, let me explain myself.
I woke up this morning (New Year's Day) and began to get ready for Bible class and worship, just like I always do on Sunday morning. This thought came to me and I posted it as my status on Facebook:
Happy New Year! I resolve to not make any resolutions in this new year, but to continue to strive daily to live a more excellent life spiritually, physically,
emotionally, and mentally....all to His glory and not my own.
So....back to my 5 reasons:
#1: It's not all about me!
The word resolution means, "
Brothers, I do not consider myself yet to have taken hold of it. But one thing I do: Forgetting what is behind and straining toward what is ahead, I press on toward the goal to win the prize for which God has called me heavenward in Christ Jesus.
Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, the new creation has come: The old has gone, the new is here!
