Did you make any New Year’s resolutions? Are you still committed to those or have they already gone by the wayside? I actually don’t make New Year’s resolutions, while in concept sound like a great plan, I know for me they are not a strong enough motivator to change an embedded behavior. While I don’t make New Year resolutions there are things that I am very resolute with. In May of 1968 I was baptized and from that day I have been committed and resolute in my relationship with Jesus. That relationship has changed, developed and matured through the years but it began with a resolution to love Jesus with all my heart. Even at the young age that I was, this was not a flippant commitment that could be forgotten or negated. So why has this resolution to love Jesus with all my heart been so different than a New Year’s resolution? I believe it is because this is a relational commitment. Jesus loves me more than I could ever understand or love him in return. He is loves me so much that He died for me removing all of my shortcomings from God’s eyes and opening the gates of Heaven for me. Jesus is my constant companion and friend and He will never leave me and therefore I will never leave Him. I remain resolute to love Jesus with all my heart. This is one resolution that we should all keep. Happy New Year!
