What a treat to hear from you Robert! Happy New Year!

Good encouragement for the Christian esp the part about physically taking care of ourselves by avoiding the Oreos…;-)

I want to walk “appropriately” also, as one called of God. How does that walk look? If we think about it for just a moment it is not a walk where I will ever “do” anything(walk) to be or to make myself worthy.

I know this is old news as Derek and I have gone over this many times before. I do think it is important though because the translators got it wrong. The word translates “appropriately”, which has a meaning a world apart from “worthy”. What do you think?

I enjoyed your article and hearing from you!

Hi Doc,
This article is actually a reprint of an article I wrote a year or two ago. However, that being said, I have now had time to have put these resolutions into action and can report that they have had a tremendous effect on my faith. By faithfully practicing these disciplines, my relationship with Jesus has improved dramatically.

I also agree with your assessment of ‘walking appropriately’ or ‘worthy’. I think we walk in such a manner as reveals our relationship with Jesus. We walk ‘appropriately’ or ‘worthy’ because we have been made worthy due to our repentance and faith in Jesus Christ. It is He who makes us ‘worthy’, and our works are the result of our relationship with Him.

May your 2016 be marked by a closer and more fruitful walk with Him. God bless you.
Yours in Christ,

Pastor Sardar,
Thank you for reading and commenting. I can only hope that my efforts for His Kingdom will bear fruit in the lives of those with whom I come into contact (as well as bearing fruit in my own life).
Yours in Christ,

I am truly blessed on reading your proposed New Year Resolution commitment. I totally agree with you that only when God is the center of our resolutions it will matter the most. Far to often we make getting involved in church activities a priority and fall short of our own personal relationship with God and His purpose over our life. Thank you once again

I am the editor for my church (Corona Church, Denver, CO 80218) newsletter. I would like to use your article for my January edition. I think it is a wonderful article, and can richly benefit my readers. The newsletter is only sent out by email to members, and printed for visitors to pick up when they leave our church service. I will credit the article to you.

Thanks you for your consideration.
