This morning, after we've finished the New Year's Eve celebrations and most of the big football bowl games, it's time to begin thinking about New Year's resolutions. And while many of us are like the little fellow in the caption and think we are perfect, we mortal humans are far from that. So this weekend's Sunday Morning Coming Down will focus on that very subject and we will do so from the Christian perspective since that is a principal focus of my blog.
The first and foremost resolution for me personally and one which I would recommend to all Christians is to REDOUBLE THE EFFORT TO PUT CHRIST FOREMOST IN OUR LIVES. If we are indeed believers, then it is imperative that we do so, for He died for us so that we might be given the opportunity to live with Him forever. How can we not put him first in all that we do if we truly believe that?
And all of us, including any non-Christians who might be reading this, need to read the famous scriptural passage above, including the second verse, for it clearly states that His purpose for having come to earth those many years ago was to offer a wonderful gift of love, the ultimate gift, not condemn. We Christians are therefore not in a position to judge others but to try and show others the glory of living for Him and it must be done with good spirit and not force. Accepting the opportunity to believe and thereby live eternally with God is a free will choice. And here in America our Constitution even instituted that. But it likewise provided for Christians to freely exercise their faith, not to be controlled and subjected to ridicule as some today would have it.
So Christians must stand by their belief in Him and live for Him to earn their place at His table in heaven above. And on this weekend's Sunday Morning Coming Down on North Florida Writer Live we will talk about what it means to believe in Jesus Christ. I hope you'll join us for the message, some beautiful music and a prayer as we focus on the most important and foremost New Year's resolution that we all should commit to both in thought and action.
Sunday Morning Coming Down is a weekly devotional provided by North Florida Writer Live on Blog Talk Radio. It is offered for anyone who believes, isn't sure about their belief, or just wants more information about what the Christian faith is all about. The first step to becoming a follower of Jesus Christ is asking questions and opening our eyes. I hope we fulfill that mission.
