Finishing Last Year’s Resolutions Well

For many years now, I never resolve at a periodic point in time, such as New Year, to change for the better. Repentance should happen when we become aware of the problem. Under the New Covenant, His people know Him intimately, and therefore, they can adjust their heart in response to His promptings. Christians still face many challenges despite the New Covenant’s advantages. Sometimes our heart lies to us and we feel guilty about something God has not said. The solution is to know Him and His word better. This is accomplished through the Spirit and a regular component of Paul’s prayers: I keep asking that the God of our Lord Jesus Christ, the glorious Father, may give you the Spirit  of wisdom and revelation, so that you may know him better (Eph. 1.17 NIV). Here is an article about perseverance. Instead of listening to our own heart or other’s expectations, let’s fix our eyes on Christ and seek to please Him.
