Happy New Year, everyone! Welcome to 2022!
As we look to make changes in our lives — things like getting out of debt, losing weight, working out, etc. — let’s not forget that bodily exercise profits little. I Timothy 4:8 — For bodily exercise profiteth little, but godliness is profitable unto all things, having a promise of the life that now is, and of that which is to come.
We need to put God first in every area of our lives. We need to be more heavenly minded than earthly minded. God is the only one who can truly change a life — change a heart. So often in the new year people make New Year’s resolutions only to see them set aside after a couple of weeks. Let’s put God first and believe God for real, lasting change. Let’s seek Him, and seek Him as we never have.
Let’s put God first, spiritual things first, not natural ones. People will go to the gym 4 or 5 times a week and make it a priority. But maybe they’ll go to church once every 4 to 5 weeks, and if they are really dedicated, maybe once every two weeks. It’s no wonder believers are not stronger. It’s about priorities. God first!
So, when thinking about changes we want to make for this new year, maybe we could make church a priority, God’s word a priority, and prayer a priority. Just maybe be more heavenly minded in 2022!
Just a thought,
