New Year’s Resolution

broken-resolutionsTime magazine states that New Year’s resolutions are the most commonly broken promises made each year. According to Time, broken resolutions most frequently include weight loss, increased exercise, quit smoking, travel more or drink less. Why do we do this to ourselves? Why do we set ourselves up for failure and then beat ourselves up over it?

As Christians our resolution, New Year’s or otherwise, should be to draw closer to Christ, glorify our Lord more, and pledge more of ourselves to the expansion of his kingdom. Jonathan Edwards made it simple when he said, “Resolution one: I will live for God. Resolution two: If no one else does, I still will.”

starbucks1Why not resolve that in 2015 you will dedicate a fraction of the blessings God has given you to expand his kingdom and bring him glory? God was clear that we are called us to serve the suffering (Matthew 25:40), provide justice (Micah 6:8), care for orphans (James 1:27), give food (Luke 3:11) and show love (Galatians 5:13-15). In 2015 could you pledge to bring God greater glory? Instead of buying another smart phone or refreshments for your Bible study or premium cable for your home or Starbucks or eating out, could you be part of what God is doing in Honduras? Could your minor sacrifice win major glory for God?
