A New Year and New Resolutions

As we enter into another new year, I have thought through countless resolutions that would better my life… Eat better, spend more time on the things that matter, spend less time on things that don’t…  I think you know how that goes.

One resolution that I read a few years ago seems to capture the desire that drives this blog.  Jonathan Edwards, an American Puritan pastor from the early 1700’s once wrote:

“Resolved, To study the Scriptures so steadily, constantly, and frequently,

as that I may find, and plainly perceive, myself to grow in the knowledge of the same.”

I pray that together, we can look back on 2014 as a year that is marked by this very resolution… that in 2015, we can plainly see that we have grown in the knowledge of God and His Word.  I like to think of it as prepping for eternity 🙂
