The Most Important New Year Resolution
I am unashamedly posting the Gospel Truth. If this makes you angry, or squeamish, so be it.
It is the time of year when we are all considering our new goals for a new year. How wonderful are fresh beginnings! What better New Year Resolution is there than to strive for a right relationship with our Heavenly Father? Every day is a new beginning with Him!
Think about it.
We are all worthy to be loved, from the do-gooder to the murderer, and everyone in-between. All are worthy to be loved.
God, the Heavenly Father God, loves us all unconditionally. No strings attached. Unearned love. Unfathomable love.
Does this mean all are bound for eternal life in Heaven? No way. Our Heavenly Father is Just and Holy. He cannot abide sin. And all of us are sinners. None of us are worthy of an eternal life in His Presence.
Remember that unearned, unfathomable love? What makes us worthy of it? Our Heavenly Father gave us salvation through the sacrifice of His Son on the cross. Would He make that sacrifice lightly? Would He suffer so much pain on our account if He considered us unworthy? I think not.
Our Father doesn’t ask us to understand it. All He asks is for us to believe, confess our sins, and choose a right relationship with Him. Trust Him. Obey Him. Love Him. He loves us so much, that He gives us choice. Choose Him. Choose love. Choose life.
What is the most important New Year Resolution we can make? What matters more than a goal that ministers to our soul?
Think about it.
