While all of us are deciding what we want our goals and resolutions to be for 2017, I thought I would share 10 of my life resolutions.
Resolution #1: I resolve to obey God without delay and without consideration for the consequences or lack of resources.
Resolution #2: I resolve to be a student of God’s Word and as I read it to apply it to my life. I will be a doer of the Word and not a hearer only.
Resolution #3: Because I want to spend time regularly with God and develop an intimacy with Him, I will continually be in prayer even when I don’t “feel” like praying.
Resolution #4: I resolve to be a worshipper because God alone is worth of my worship.
Resolution #5: I will not compromise my faith to become more acceptable to the culture. This would include salvation is only through the blood of Jesus Christ, that there is only one road to Heaven, and that what God calls sin is sin.
Resolution #6: I resolve to constantly learn and read.
Resolution #7: I resolve strive to forgive anyone who I become offended with and to resolve any matter where people are offended by me as far as it is up to me.
Resolution #8: I resolve that when I am stressed by everyday life, to be in joy and peace through Jesus Christ.
Resolution #9: I resolve to be expectant and ready for the coming of the Lord Jesus Christ at any moment and to live my life that way.
Resolution #10: I resolve to repent as soon as I realize I have failed with one of these resolutions and to return to fellowship with Christ.
