OK…HAPPY NEW YEAR.
I’M FAT, I MUST DIET!
I’M GOING TO START EXERCISING!
I’M GOING TO QUIT SMOKING!
I’M GOING TO START GOING TO CHURCH!
I’M…… the list is so different for each person.
Here is the bottom line. IT IS NOT JUST STARTING THE RESOLUTION, BUT YOU MUST HAVE A PLAN TO FINISH IT!
It is funny because we get a rush for the first two months at church. The attendance goes up and people are real faithful to church again until about the second month. The truth is that by the third month people go right back to their old lifestyle and abandon their resolution!
RESOLUTION – means resolve, determined, a decision, a vow to complete something.
Eccles 5:4-7, When you make a promise to God, don’t delay in following through, for God takes no pleasure in fools. Keep all the promises you make to him. 5 It is better to say nothing than to make a promise and not keep it. 6 Don’t let your mouth make you sin. And don’t defend yourself by telling the Temple messenger that the promise you made was a mistake. That would make God angry, and he might wipe out everything you have achieved. 7 Talk is cheap, like daydreams and other useless activities. Fear God instead. NLT
DO NOT START THE RESOLUTION IF YOU ARE NOT RESOLVED TO COMPLETE IT AT ANY COST.
There is a cost to every resolution. Sacrificing your flesh. Taking your flesh into subjection. Not allowing influences to take you away from your goal.
Luke 14:28, For which of you, desiring to build a tower, does not first sit down and count the cost, whether he has enough to complete it?
RESOLVE THAT NO MATTER WHAT THE COST YOU WILL COMPLETE YOUR RESOLUTION TO MOVE FORWARD IN EVERY AREA OF YOUR LIFE FOR JESUS!
I hope to see you on month 3 and 4, all the way to the 12th month at His Tabernacle Family Church!
