Resolutions or Transformation?
Every year, around this time, we start thinking and planning for the coming New Year. Many of us make resolutions dreaming of becoming healthier, fitter, slimmer, stronger, more organized, self-controlled and happier. We love getting a "do-over;" a chance to start again and change all the bad habits we've allowed to accumulate.
Before you start making your New Year's resolutions, we'd like to suggest this for the top spot: reading through the Bible this year.
Reading God's word is how God changes, renews, restores, and transforms us. So, want to change? "Take up and read!"
We're linking below to some excellent articles from Gospel Coalition to help you with understanding why this is important and over the next few days, we'll be posting some suggestions for reading plans.
