It’s that time of the year again when we get to reflect on the year that has been and look forward to the year that is to come. Many of us look back at the last 12 months and take stock of the mistakes we made, hoping to learn from them. Others may sit and recount the awesome things that happened - weddings, babies, birthdays, anniversaries, new jobs, graduations, recovery from illness... many of us have much to be thankful for.
 
One of the traditions that often happens at the new year is the making of New Year Resolutions. These are the things that we resolve to do in the following year. More popular ones are to eat more healthily, to lose weight, to get fitter, or to drink less coffee (*gasp*). Often these resolutions focus on what we want to do to improve our life. And they aren’t bad things to strive for.
 
But as we approach the start of 2018, we think that there is one resolution that is just as, if not more important to make. 
 
Where is your heart?
 
Is it sold out to Jesus, who came to earth as a baby, grew into a man, and being fully God and fully human died in our place so that we may be called sons and daughters of God?
 
This is the most important question that we can ask ourselves as we go into this new year. If your answer is no, please take some time to seek Him, read His Word, ask questions of His disciples.
 
If it is yes, then let us resolve to follow Him. Regardless of our lack of understanding or our comfort. This new year may we be a people who are seeking Him and His Will. And then, may we be obedient.
 
This is our prayer for 2018. Will you join us?
 
And I heard the voice of the Lord saying, “Whom shall I send, and who will go for us?” Then I said, “Here I am! Send me.” (Isaiah 6:8)
