Resolved: 21. The Last One

Resolved 21: The Last One

Resolution #21

Resolved, if I should ever fall down or fail to keep one of these resolutions, that I would ask for God’s grace to get back up and press on, knowing fully that His grace is in no way contingent upon my performance.

A Tall, Dangerous Order

When I started out on these 21 resolutions, I knew it would be a heavy undertaking. It certainly was. I learned a lot, however, and hope that the readers of this blog were able to pick up something useful here and there. At the end of the day, this series has become a manifesto of sorts.

Manifestos can be dangerous, however. The Pharisees had a manifesto. They called it the Talmud and treated it like God’s Word. In doing so, they laid an impossible burden on themselves and their followers. That said, here’s a list of things to remember as we walk…

  • God’s Word is our final authority, not some guy’s list of resolutions.
  • God’s love for us is freely given. It’s got nothing to do with performance.
  • Failure to satisfy one of the resolutions is an inevitable step in the process.
  • Spiritual growth is about the journey, not the destination.
  • God will continue to work on us, in spite of us.

Question: Which of these resolutions resonated with you the most?
