New Year's Resolutions

New Year’s greetings my brothers and sisters in Christ.  May The Lord bless you and pour His grace upon you and your loved ones throughout this year, 2017.

Are New Year's resolutions a good idea . . . or a bad idea?

Well, we guess that depends upon whom you ask.  We happen to think they are a good idea.


Well, first of all, it shows that we recognize the need to improve ourselves in certain areas.  Whether we live up to our resolutions to improve is another thing.  At least we admit that we are in need of improvement . . . And we can all use some improvement.  Don't you agree?

Our first resolution of any year should be to improve our relationship with The Lord.

Why should that be our first resolution?

Because God should always be first in a Christian's life . . . Before anything else!

No matter how good we believe our relationship with The Lord is, it most certainly could be better.  Therefore, that should be our first consideration when making resolutions for the new year.

We hope you will consider this and that you will resolve to do better during the year . . . Especially when it comes to your relationship with Jesus.

Having said all of that, The Lord would also be happy to know that we seek to improve relations with family members, friends, co-workers – if we are still employed – and, perhaps, those who may not be so friendly, for we are all God’s children.

May the new year be a blessing to you and your loved ones through our lord and savior, Jesus Christ.
