Resolutions

Michael Pickford

This is the time of year when people in the world begin to make several different resolutions in their lives. Many of these are for the purpose of bettering themselves in some way. Some resolve to quit smoking, or drinking, or to lose some weight. To resolve to do something is to make a firm decision and commitment to accomplish it. Itís interesting to hear people boast of their resolutions, and then watch as they break them in a few days or weeks.

I want to suggest to you that when one becomes a Christian, he makes many resolutions himself. I will give a quick, non-exhaustive list here of things that we should all resolve to do. Maybe youíll find some of these lacking in your life. If so, resolve to do them beginning now.

  • Study Godís word daily (Acts 17:11)
  • Pray regularly (1 Thess. 5:17)
  • Be faithful to God (Rev. 2:10)
  • Attend services faithfully (Heb. 10:25)
  • Be hospitable (Rom 12:13)
  • Forgive others (Eph 4:32)
  • Love your enemies (Matt. 5:44)
  • Contribute more (2 Cor. 9:6,7)
  • Share your faith with others (Heb. 5:12)
  • And especially, if youíre not yet a Christian...Obey the Gospel! (Heb. 5:8,9)


  • Have you made your resolutions?
