In 2021- Make This Year A Year For New Beginnings
1. Talk to God.
It seems so simple, but yet people make it out to be so hard. It's something that we Christians don't do near enough. It's time to quit talking about people and talk to God about these people. We need to make a resolution to spend some time talking to God. It's time to find our secret place as the bible tells us. "But when you pray, go into your room, close the door and pray to your Father, who is unseen.” Matthew 6:6
Let's resolve to tell people what God has done for you. Tell them how good he is and how he sent his only son to save them. Posting a mere Bible Verse to Facebook each day is not enough. It is our job to tell people about the God we serve. Let's resolve to tell someone about God or invite someone to SRKOGTI this year. "He said to them, “Go into all the world and preach the gospel to all creation." Mark 16:15
2. Read about the God.
Another resolution we can make that seems so simple, but Christians rarely spend their time doing it is to read the Bible. God's word is what we have to go by and what we are to live by. It is the foundation of our faith, yet many Christians never bother to open it except on Sunday, sometimes not even then. "All Scripture is God-breathed and is useful for teaching, rebuking, correcting and training in righteousness so that the servant of God may be thoroughly equipped for every good work.” 2 Timothy 3:16-17
3. Worship God.
Let's make a resolution to quit going to church as a social gathering. Let's go to church for the intended purpose. To show God that we want to be closer to him and to be yoked with fellow believers in order to lift each other up. Let's not go because we are made to go, or because if you don't show up the town will be talking, let's go to church to worship the Lord. "And let us consider one another to provoke unto love and to good works. Not forsaking the assembling of ourselves together, as the manner of some is; but exhorting one another: and so much the more, as ye see the day approaching." Hebrews 10: 24-25
