Every year we make a list of resolutions that we intend to keep to improve the way we live from one year to the next. In the past, my list has looked something like this:

This year my list comes entirely from Ephesians 4:25-32, NCV. I hope you will share it with me.

“So you must stop telling lies. Tell each other the truth, because we all belong to each other in the same body.”

“When you are angry, do not sin, and be sure to stop being angry before the end of the day.”

“Do not give the devil a way to defeat you.”

“Those who are stealing must stop stealing and start working. They should earn an honest living for themselves. Then they will have something to share with those who are poor.”

“When you talk, do not say harmful things, but say what people need – words that will help others become stronger. Then what you say will do good to those who listen to you.”

“And do not make the Holy Spirit sad. The Spirit is God’s proof that you belong to him. God gave you the Spirit to show that God will make you free when the final day comes.”

“Do not be bitter or angry or mad. Never shout angrily or say things to hurt others.”

“Never do anything evil.”

“Be kind and loving to each other, and forgive each other just as God forgave you in Christ.”

Happy New Year, everyone! I pray that God will richly bless each of you as you continue to live your life in a way that will glorify Him!

Have a blessed 2013, “Working for Christ”!
