It is common for people to make plans towards the end of the year and I have often heard people give a verbal list of plans or ‘resolutions’ like;

1. To start going to the gym
2. To eat healthily
3. To spend more time reading the Bible
4. To spend more time praying
As laudable as these plans may be, it is no surprise that by the end of the second week of the new year, a lot of those who made these plans would have given up on some or all of them.
From my observation in the gym where I work out, January is usually the busiest month of the year, especially the first week. Many of those who start the year resolving to start working out,  throng the various gyms.

For those who are consistent...

Brethren, I count not myself to have apprehended: but this one thing I do, forgetting those things which are behind, and reaching forth unto those things which are before, I press toward the mark for the prize of the high calling of God in Christ Jesus. - Philippians 3:13, 14 KJV

I believe God is calling us to press towards the high calling this year.

What have you been called to do?  Some people believe that other have a higher calling than others. That is far from the truth. Although we perform different roles through the gifts that God has given to us, there is only one calling!

No one calling is more important or higher than others. Your calling is as important as the Pastor’s calling. God knows you have what it takes to walk in that calling, that is why He called you!

As one year ends and another one begins, it is usual for people to review their lives in the out-going year and  make projections into the new year. 


Some people make resolutions based on changes they want to make in the new year. These resolutions are often made to curtail habits or to achieve something significant.  What happens most times is that these resolutions are most often than not broken within the first few weeks into the new year.
