RESOLUTION: a firm decision to do or not to do something

You can’t accomplish a resolution without being resolute with your resolve
Latin word RESOLVERE: To loosen, release, break up
1 Timothy 1:15-16(NIV)
Here is a trustworthy saying that deserves full acceptance: Christ Jesus came into the world to save sinners—of whom I am the worst. But for that very reason I was shown mercy so that in me, the worst of sinners, Christ Jesus might display his immense patience as an example for those who would believe in him and receive eternal life.
Paul, who wrote most of the New Testament, uses the Greek word ‘sosai’ for ‘save’ in 1
Timothy 1:15. Sosai: To rescue, deliver out of danger, rescue from destruction and bring into divine safety.
Acts 17:28 ‘For in him (God) we live and move and have our being.’
We must hear God’s voice and be resolute in following Him. That’s the GREATEST RESOLUTION we can have for 2018.
