January is three short days away, and it’s understandable that we’re thinking about the New Year. Whether we make resolutions at this time of year or not, something in us feels an urge to start over — to avoid our past sins and to serve God better.
I applaud such aspirations. We should cultivate desires to serve and honor the Lord at all times of the year. He is worthy of such devotion! If New Year’s resolutions help you rekindle your love for Him, I most assuredly support you in making them! And if, like me, you approach repentance and sanctification as a daily process, I equally support you.
Either way, we can rejoice that God Himself takes our meager offerings of ourselves and uses those offerings for His glory. We can trust Him to consecrate us for Himself.
