But if you are anything like me you make resolutions for the upcoming year only to get maybe half way through the year and stop! Can I get a witness! I honestly have stopped making them. Who wants to set themselves up for failure anyway? I try to be disciplined, I really do, but I fail more often than not.
Maybe I fail because of the resolutions themselves. I have to ask myself do the resolutions I make have eternal value or are they just face value. You know the ones that have an outside appearance of making me look good but on the inside I am only full of dead men’s bones?
So for 2016 and beyond I have decided that I am going to make a different kind of resolution, a lifestyle change that will have eternal value. This resolution will change me from the inside out. Then maybe the other things that need to change will over time begin to change.
I want to challenge you to do this as well.
I know that if you do you will be changed from the inside out.
In-Depth Bible study.
I am not going to make this legalistic. I know that there is not a set amount of time a person needs to be in the Word of God. You can spend 5 minutes a day, or 10 hours a day in the word and there is a great value that will come from it. This challenge will have you in the word around 45-60 minutes a day. I know that sounds like a lot of time. There are Bible studies out there that are 1 minute -10 minutes long. But I believe that working through this study will be well worth the time and effort you put into it! There is nothing more important than being in God’s Word yourself.
- Reading blog posts is great.
- Listening to your pastor is wonderful.
- Reading Christian books is also great
The word on your own is invaluable!
January 11th-March 4th
I have a great tool to get you off to a good start. A Free Bible study in the book of Romans. I have been running a Romans series for about 16 weeks. It is not over yet! I will begin the next session on January the 11th. It will run through March the 4th.
I have written 25 lessons for the first 8 chapters of Romans. I know there are 16 chapters in the book. As you read this post the last 8 chapters are being written!!! We will more than likely end up with 25 more lessons! That is a lot, I know, but worth all the effort you put into it.
