Did you make a New Year's Resolution? What do you think is the most common resolution? Probably to lose weight. Back on December 30, I said I don't make New Year's Resolutions. But I reconsidered, especially after eating so much during the holidays. So I resolved to lose 15 pounds. Well, here we are, a month into the new year, and I only have 25 pounds to go.
Let's switch gears. Let's move from the superficial…New Year's Resolutions…to the significant. What do you think God's goal for you for the new year is? God's greatest goal for you is to grow in your faith in Jesus Christ as your Lord and Savior. That's God's greatest goal for you. We may resolve to lose weight or quit a bad habit or develop a good habit but God's desire is to see us grow in our walk with His Son, Jesus Christ.
