As the end of the year approaches, many people start to think about the changes they want to make in their lives and the goals they want to accomplish in the coming year. It’s common for people to make New Year’s resolutions, with the idea that the start of a new year is a fresh start and the perfect time to make positive changes.
But! As Christians, we should be careful not to wait until the new year to make resolutions or set goals. Instead, we should be continually striving to grow in our faith and become more like Jesus every day.
Romans 12:2 tells us that we are to be “transformed by the renewing of our minds.” This transformation is not something that happens overnight! This doesn’t happen just because a new year has begun. It’s a ongoing process that requires daily effort and commitment.
So, rather than waiting for the new year to make resolutions, consider setting goals and making positive changes in your life today. Seek guidance from God and His Word, and ask for His help in making the changes you want to see in your life. Remember, every day is a new opportunity to grow closer to Him and become more like Jesus.
