It is a long-standing tradition for people to make a New Year’s resolution. I propose that we take that idea and make resolutions for Christians. Here is a suggested list. Make changes to them as you wish.
Be more consistent and dedicated
Allow the Holy Spirit to have more influence in my daily life
Be a channel of God to reach others
Be less timid while witnessing for Christ
Allow God to sanctify me by showing me the sins that I need to confess but overlooked
Honor God with all my thoughts
Listen closely to what the Holy Spirit says to my heart
Be aware of what is spiritually healthy and what is not healthy for me
Be more caring and kinder
Read at least ten verses of the Bible every day
These are suggestions that you could use. Make up your own list as you wish. The important thing is that we as Christians be more earnest. We must set aside the trite things like losing weight or making more money or getting a better job. Instead, we should substitute and follow what would be more effective to ourselves and others.
