On New Year’s Resolutions, Daily Repentance and Sanctification

It’s only natural to want to set New Year’s resolutions–things we want to change, things we want to start doing, to improve self, etc–to become a better you, me.

As a Christ follower, I tend to see things differently when it comes to New Year’s resolutions.  In categories of gospel and law, when I sin, I must repent and endeavor to be more like Christ.  But never in my own strength, rather wholly leaning and relying on the good news of  the gospel of Christ–Word and Spirit!

So I say NO to New Year’s resolutions!

But YES to daily repentance and sanctification!
