Questions You Should Ask Before Making a Resolution

Dear friends,

Every once in a while I find myself challenged by my own words, even convicted. The sermon I’m attaching below is a good example.

Back in 2014 I preached a sermon having to do with making resolutions, and as I listened to it today, my heart was broken; I’ve not accomplished my goals.

This sermon was recorded, as many of them were at that time, with my iPhone 4 sitting on the pulpit. Funny thing, some people actually thought I was reading my sermons from an app!

But I’ve done what I could to better the audio quality, and I would love for you to listen. This message is one that needs to be heard and heeded, for if Jesus set His face toward Calvary, there are some things we should set our faces “like a flint” towards.

Click on the link below, then after you listen to it, tell me if it challenged you like it does me.

God bless!

Questions to Ask Before Making a Resolution

“Eight Questions To Ask Before Making a Resolution”

  1. Do I need to make any resolutions?

There is nothing so fatal to character as half-finished tasks.” – David Lloyd George

  1. What has God called me to do? (John 6:38)
  2. Where will I be at this time next year if nothing changes?
  3. What should I do that I know is right, but will cause others to mock me?
  4. Will I be willing to be held accountable?
  5. Will my determination be visible?
  6. Will I rely on my own strength?
  7. To Whom will the glory go when I succeed?

“And whatsoever ye do, do it heartily, as to the Lord, and not unto men.” – Col. 3:23

All You Do

Do What?

If all you can do is all you can do, then do all you can do to do all you can do.

But if you’re not doing all you can do to do all you can do, then how much do you really want what it is you do the thing you do for?

It’s not all about do, do, do; it’s about “whatsoever you do, do it heartily, as to the LORD, and not unto men” (Col. 3:23).

Now, go do the thing that you do! 

Time for a random picture taken by my daughter, Katie. 🙂 Enjoy!
