Resolutions

resolutionsIf you haven’t made your New Year’s resolutions for 2015 yet, you really have waited until the last minute!

Many people make resolutions every year, promising themselves to do better in at least one area of their life. Most resolutions are related to something physical, such as: losing weight, improving eating habits or increasing exercise.

Some resolutions, however, involve spiritual matters. People often make promises to be more devoted to God. If you haven’t made such a resolution yet, here are some suggestions.

  1. Read through the Bible this year. If this seems like too daunting a task, at least read through the New Testament. It won’t take nearly as long as you think.
  2. Strengthen your prayer time. Pray longer. Pray less selfishly. Pray about kingdom issues. Just pray!
  3. Encourage someone every day. Send an uplifting text or email. Write a note to someone you appreciate. Give someone a compliment or praise.
  4. Memorize Scripture. Commit key verses to memory so that you can meditate on God’s Word.
  5. Try to attend a worship service every single Sunday.
  6. Every Sunday, do your best to make someone glad they came to worship that day.

These are only a few suggestions for spiritual New Year’s resolutions. Do you have a different one to share?

    Tom,
    Really good resolutions..if we all did them, lives would change. Me though? I’d change #5 to go every time they open the doors LOL. Great post, thanks!

    I embrace each one, and add one more for myself. I desire to point more to the cross, and the grace represented there for them. I pray that the Lord would use me to lead others to foot of the cross. I want to use my time to lead others to know Christ as Lord and Savior, and ultimately to heaven. I just want to give myself to the cause of Christ and the Kingdom.
