Resolutions are a way of life for many of us. We center our lives upon what we are determined to accomplish and we make resolutions throughout the year, as our lives change. We find ourselves making resolutions to lose weight, to eat healthy, to spend more time reading, to spend more time with family or to become a better person.

“Resolution one: I will live for God. Resolution two: Even if no one else does, I still will.” – Jonathan Edwards

Resolutions, as we often view them, keep us on track or keep us focused. Resolutions can be good things for us too. Resolutions should not be an end-all, be all for believers. Resolutions can become a legalistic lifestyle if our focus becomes centered on what we are doing and not what we believe. Yet, I want to encourage all of us to make resolutions to engage.
