A Resolution For Every Day

What is a truly sober mind? What is right thinking?
Not fretting over, not caring what others may think about you,
but caring about what God thinks concerning you.

What are the right actions that we should take each day in 2016?
Not actions to please others around us, but actions that honor the Lord God. "The steps of a good man are ordered by the Lord, and He delighteth in his way". God made us in His image, in order to reflect His goodness and glory.
Wow! These are impossible marching orders were it not for Christ Jesus, the crucified and risen Savior. He can save to the uttermost those who call upon His Name. Remember Onesimus, the "useless". now and forever known as the useful. An amazing transformation that all true Christians can relate to, and embrace as their own experience.
May our greatest joy in 2016 be this: to please and honor Him Who laid down His life for us, yea, Who was raised to life for us, and even now talks to the Father on our behalf. Hey, now, that is a powerful "joymaker" thought...Jesus talking with God the Father on your behalf!
Halelujah, what a Savior! Hallelujah, what a future that no one can steal from those who are Christ's property and possession!
