NEW-YEARS-RESOLUTIONS-calendar

Well here we are again… the alarm went off this morning with that familiar sound, it was indeed the first Monday morning of 2015…

But of course with a New Year come New Year Resolutions, time honoured moments to sit back and take stock of the things we want to try and achieve this year, and if my little trip to Asda this morning is anything to go by then they reckon the two big resolutions are to eat healthier and clean the house…

But sometimes we make ‘Christian’ resolutions too, we say… this year i’m going to be better at reading my Bible or this year i’m going to pray more…

But if we are not careful, those good sentiments quickly turn from a new start to a new way to prove myself to God. 2015 is a better year for me and God because i’ve read my Bible more…

But consider this, New Year’s resolutions do not start a new leaf for the Christian, our new start came when God dwelt among us. Our new start came when Jesus took on human flesh and then took our sin. Our new start came, when God’s Son died, but the rose again to new life, to a new start that would never perish spoil or fade, to a new start that would never fail.

So this New Year, please do eat healthier and clean the house, please do read your Bible more and pray to our loving heavenly Father, but remember that our New Start doesn’t come on January 1st each year, it has already happened, so no need to worry!

Happy New Year
