I trust that most of you, if not all, have at least given thought to the idea of resolutions or goals for upcoming year. Most often these resolutions consist of hopes and aspirations regarding finances, relationships, employment, and personal well being such as weight loss and exercise. More often that not, we begin with a heart of earnest expectation, but in a week or two or three find ourselves amidst the reality of disappointment and resolutions broken rather than made!
Regardless of this success or failure, or even of making resolutions or not, my encouragement and hope for this year is that your resolutions would not be limited to the physical side, but extend to the spiritual as well. To that end, this message’s text of Acts 13 portrays two of the most powerful and significant truths that are sure-fire ways to flourish in the upcoming year in a spiritual manner.
