Transformed, Not Conformed: Claim Christ’s Victory Over Your Present and Future

The new year brings with it New Year’s resolutions. Many in America will commit to stop bad habits and start good ones. Maybe you’re one of these who are going to start a new exercise program or stop eating certain sweets. Maybe you’ve decided that beginning January 1 you’re going to read the entire Bible in a year. Whatever your resolution, the new year also provides an opportunity to evaluate what kind of resolve it might take to make 2015 the year you become more like Jesus. CS Lewis said that for most of us, “we are far too easily pleased.” Our desires for status, sex, and salary drive us to be satisfied by things that are not eternally valuable. Pastor Steven’s message reminds us that the greatest resolution we can make is to become more like Jesus and less like the world.
