What’s your New Year’s resolution? For the past few years, I’ve resolved not to make resolutions. The thing is, they don’t work. At least not for me. I get this idea in my head of a goal I’d like to achieve, and before March hits, I’ve already either failed, forgotten, or given up.
But someone who did have some pretty great resolutions was the great minister of old, Jonathan Edwards. I don’t know if you’ve ever read through his, but they’re God-glorifying, others-focused, spiritual growth-producing things that we should all consider.
So, for the next few weeks that’s what we’ll be looking at. These devotions may look different from what you’ve seen in the past because I won’t be starting out with one particular Bible verse. Rest assured, though, the content will be biblical and Scripture will be presented within.
Are you ready to take this journey with me? Let’s dig down into what Jonathan Edwards set out to accomplish with new resolve. Let’s keep in mind that to really succeed we have to seek first the kingdom of God and His righteousness (Matthew 6:33), not looking after our own pursuits.
