Challenges For This Coming New Year

Hey everyone! Sorry about not posting more on my blog, I have been very busy. I wanted to challenge you all in looking at this coming new year. In this I am not just talking to all of you out there but to myself also.

“Resolution 1: I will live for God. Resolution 2: If no one else does I will stand.” -Quote attributed to Johnathan Edwards. As we approach the new year lets resolve and predetermined that we are going to live for God this year, forsaking the flesh, carying our cross and following God. We need to resolve that even if we are the only ones we will stand up and do what is right before God and what he requires of us and not follow the main stream which is set against God. The verse that is going to be my theme for this year is one we all at one time or another have heard but is important to practice; Romans 12:1-2, “I appeal to you therefore, brothers, by the mercies of God, to present your bodies as a living sacrafice, holy and acceptable to God, which is your spiritual worship. Be not conformed to this world be be transformed by the renewal of your mind, that by testing you may discern what is the will of God, what is good and acceptable and perfect.” This year let every thing we do be as 1 Corinthians says, “do all to the glory of God.”

More verses to reflect on for the new year
Philippians 3:14, “I press on toward the goal for the prize of the upward call of God in Christ Jesus.”

1 Corinthians 9:24 “Do you not know that in a race all the runners run, but only one receives the prize? So run that you may obtain it.”
