As New Year’s Day comes closer, many of us make resolutions. Time Magazine has given a list of top commonly broken resolutions. Here are a few of them. Lose weight. Quit smoking. Eat a healthier diet. Get out of debt. Drink less alcohol. Unfortunately, only around 8% who make these resolutions keep them. So, it is tempting to just stop making any more. A university president once said, “You can do anything you ought to do.” And it was Paul the Apostle in agreement, who wrote in the New Testament, “I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me.” But before this can happen, we must first have Christ in our lives. The Apostle explained elsewhere, “If anyone is in Christ, he is a new creation. Old things have passed away, behold all things have become new.” With Him in control in our lives, we will be able to keep our well thought out reasonable resolutions.
