Not A New Year Resolution

Thought For The Week 19

New year's resolutions

As I was musing this morning I thought about the Apostle Paul’s instruction to ‘...glorify [Yahweh] in your body, and in your spirit, which are [Yahweh’s]. (1 Corinthians 6:20)  It opens up an amazing possibility that every act of my life can bring glory to Yahweh.  And just in case I hesitate to believe it, I remember Paul adds the basic essentials of eating and drinking. (1 Corinthians 10:31) I do a ‘double-take’ in my thoughts.  I ponder on my life.  I eat and drink without much deep thought!  How can this bring glory to Yahweh?  Yet, apparently, even such basic acts of living can!

I am humbled as I look forward into 2014 and see the endless, unfolding opportunities to bring glory to Yahweh.  I won’t manage to fulfil this instruction by becoming overly anxious about it but each day as I ‘live and move and have my being’ in the centre of Yahweh’s plan for me He will be honoured and glorified.  Not a New Year’s resolution, but a comforting truth to provoke me to live ever more closely to Him as, together, we step out into the New Year.

And whatever you do [no matter what it is] in word or deed, do everything in the name of [Yahshua] and in [dependence upon] His Person, giving praise to [Yahweh] the Father through Him.

Colossians 3:17 [Amplified Bible]
