Well it's the New Year. A time for introspection as well as evaluation of past performance. This can be a scary time. What resolutions did I make last year? What resolutions did I tell other people about last year? What resolutions don't seem like they would be to hard to do this year? So many questions. I hope that each will take an opportunity to make some New Years Resolutions this year. Hear are a few suggestions.
First: Read through the Bible. Each year we challenge the people in our church to read through the Bible in a year. Each year someone comes to me and tells me what a blessing they receive from reading through the Bible.
Second: Memorize Scripture. This year we are challenging our people to memorize the book of James. By memorizing just 2-3 verses per week you can commit the entire Book of James to memory.
Thirdly: Be more faithful. This is a broad and generic resolution, but it will affect your entire life. Be more faithful in devotions, in church, in giving, in loving, in family, in work, in every part of your life resolve to be more faithful.
I trust that each of you will have a blessed and happy New Year!
