Only three weeks left. That’s it. Three weeks from today is New Year’s Day. And what happens on New Year’s Day?
Some of you got a bit excited at the fresh-start-ness of that phrase. Most of you cringed.
To be clear: This isn’t a general post about making and keeping New Year’s Resolutions. This is about a specific New Year’s Resolution. One that I have heard countless Christians tell me that they make year after year after year.
I resolve: To be more consistent in my time in God’s Word.
Ever made that resolution? How did it go?
As you know, my passion is helping people fall in love with God’s Word. As you might not know, I didn’t fall in love with the Bible myself until I had already been a Christian for 20 years. Sure, I believed it was true. But love it? Occasionally. But not daily.
And so, each year as January rolled around, I would resolve to read it more regularly. Then February would roll around…and well…you know how it goes.

- You have made this same New Year’s Resolution.
- You are thinking about making it again.

If these assumptions don’t apply to you, you are now free to stop reading and get back to your Sudoku puzzle. If these assumptions do apply to you…I have three questions that will help. But they need to be asked now. [Read more…] about 3 Questions You Need To Answer Before New Year’s Day
