“Hit The Target”

January of every year is a month for new beginnings. Many people begin the new year with resolutions. Resolution – the act of determining a formal plan of action, firm determination/decision. The problem with most resolutions is that we often fall short of these decisions we have made in our lives. But I do believe the concept is worth exploring.

There are many “targets” we as Christians should be aiming for. As 2017 gets into full swing, these are some of the targets I will be aiming to hit.

• A faithful Christian is one who studies the Word of God.
• 2 Timothy 2:15 Do your best to present yourself to God as one approved, a worker who has no need to be ashamed, rightly handling the word of truth.
• A faithful Christian is one who prays regularly and with passion.
• Colossians 4:2 Continue steadfastly in prayer, being watchful in it with thanksgiving.
• A faithful Christian is a Godly influence to those around them.
• Matthew 5:16 In the same way, let your light shine before others, so that they may see your good works and give glory to your Father who is in heaven.
• A faithful Christian loves and cares for the lost.
• Matthew 28:19-20 Go therefore and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, [20] teaching them to observe all that I have commanded you.
• A faithful Christian will remain steadfast and endure through all
• 1 Corinthians 15:58 Therefore, my beloved brothers, be steadfast, immovable, always abounding in the work of the Lord, knowing that in the Lord your labor is not in vain.

What targets do you plan to aim for in 2017? May each of you have a blessed 2017 in service to the Lord.target-png-file
