Our ALCS New Year's Resolutions

res·o·lu·tion

ˌrezəˈlo͞oSH(ə)n/

noun

1. a firm decision to do or not to do something.

"she kept her resolution not to each chocolate again"

synonyms: intention, resolve, decision, intent, aim, plan; 

 
Did you know that it was the ancient Babylonians who first began making New Year’s resolutions?  They would make promises to the gods in order to find favor in the upcoming year.
 
What a joy it is to know that we do not need to make New Year’s resolutions in order to find favor with God – we already have it!  We are His children and His favor rests on us because He loves us so.
 
However, we still do have a few resolutions that we will be working on throughout 2015.  At ALCS, we are making ‘a firm decision’ to live First Thessalonians every day of the new year . . .
 
"Always be joyful. Pray continually, and give thanks whatever happens.
That is what God wants for you in Christ Jesus."

                                                                   First Thessalonians 5:16-18 (NCV)
 
1.  We will keep first things first by keeping our hearts, minds,
     and souls focused on the Lord – we have MUCH for which
     to be JOYFUL!  Let us celebrate daily all that the Lord has
     done.

2.  We will grow in our knowledge and love of the Lord by
     staying in prayer.  Prayer is our daily conversation
     with the Father.  We want to talk with Him and be
     near to Him always.

3.  We will make 2015 a year of thanksgiving.  The Lord is
     gracious and good to us.  We want to thank Him in all
     things, giving glory for His faithfulness to us and making
     thankfulness a way of life so that thanksgiving flows
     naturally and readily from our hearts and mouths.  
 
These are our New Year’s resolutions.  We can’t wait to get started!
 
Do you make a New Year’s resolution or two?  If so, what are you making a firm decision to do or not do? 

{PLEASE no New Year’s resolutions to NOT do
homework this year!!}
