The New Year is always a time of reflection and goal setting. Sadly, far too often our life-goals are passive and don’t last past the end of January. Is there a better way to make adjustments in our lives that will produce lasting results?
The good news is that Jesus has provided us the perfect way to live a life free of resolutions yet overflowing with fulfillment and eternal rewards.
HOW TO LIVE BY DESIGN,
NOT BY DEFAULT

(John 6:35, NIV) “I AM the bread of life. Whoever comes to me will never go hungry, and whoever believes in me will never be thirsty.”
When the “I AM” is my bread and water I will always have power to help others
(John 14:12, NCV) “I tell you the truth, whoever believes in me will do the same things that I do. Those who believe will do even greater things …”
What kind of church, work place, community, or country would we have if everyone was like me?
I AM SUPERNATURAL
Christ is in me, with me, and doing all things through me
(Proverbs 25:21-22, MSG) If you see your enemy hungry, go buy him lunch; if he’s thirsty, bring him a drink. generosity will surprise him with goodness, and God will look after you.
(Romans 12:20-21, MSG) If you see your enemy hungry, go buy that person lunch, or if he’s thirsty, get him a drink. Your generosity will surprise him with goodness … get the best of evil by doing good.
I AM RESPONSIBLE
The closer I get to Jesus the more I begin to value other people
I AM SACRIFICIAL
(Romans 12:1-2, MSG) So here’s what I want you to do, God helping you: Take your everyday, ordinary life—your sleeping, eating, going-to-work, and walking-around life— and place it before God as an offering. Embracing what God does for you is the best thing you can do for him. Don’t become so well-adjusted to your culture that you fit into it without even thinking. Instead, fix your attention on God. You’ll be changed from the inside out. Readily recognize what he wants from you, and quickly respond to it. Unlike the culture around you, always dragging you down to its level of immaturity, God brings the best out of you, develops well-formed maturity in you.
