Tired Hearing about New Year’s Resolutions?

Are you tired of hearing about New Year’s resolutions, goals, and focus? I am.

However, as I study the book of Hebrews, I want to draw closer to Jesus Christ. I don’t want to call that a New Year’s resolution, a goal or a focus, but I will say it’s the desire of my heart. What is the desire of your heart for 2015?

Why would I desire to draw closer to Christ in 2015? Hebrews 1:1 says, “[God] has spoken to us by his Son.” I don’t want to miss out on what God says. What about you?

Hebrews 1:3 says, “The Son is the radiance of God’s glory.” I want to be more like Christ and radiate God’s glory not mine. Whose glory will you radiate?

Verse 3 also says, Christ is “the exact representation of his [God’s] being.” As a Christian, my eternal home is in heaven. I want to get to know the one with whom I’ll spend eternity. And you?

Verses 11-12 tell us that Christ remains “the same.” With all that changes around me, I want the stability of a relationship with Christ who does not change.

strong>Hebrews 1:2: “But in these last days he [God] has spoken to us by his Son, whom he appointed heir of all things, and through whom also he made the universe.”

Dear God, please help me know Christ better. Amen.

Application: What will you do this week to draw closer to Christ?
