the new.

sonriseJesus not only made a New Years resolution, He brought a New Way of doing life on earth.

With these simple prophetic words, He changed life on planet earth as we know it.

“The Spirit of the Lord is on me, because he has anointed me to proclaim good news to the poor. He has sent me to proclaim freedom for the prisoners and recovery of sight for the blind, to set the oppressed free, to proclaim the year of the Lord’s favor.” Luke 4:18-19

Following the words Jesus spoke, what if this became our New Years Resolution…

  1. Travel with Holy Spirit. As in the worship song, when He says “go left,” go left. When He says “go right,” go right. Never sure of the destination, but it’ll be good!
  2. Share Good News. Choose to see good and share it, including what He is doing! I have come to love our testimony time at the NewDay School. It’s all good! He’s all good!
  3. Bring Freedom. “Where the Spirit of the Lord is, there is freedom” 2 Corinthians 3:17. The Spirit is in us. (Thank you, Jesus, for placing Him within us.) We’re where we are (a deep thought, I know…) so we bring freedom to each and every place we happen to be.
  4. Open the eyes of the blind. Shine the light on their darkness! Open eyes to see Jesus in all His love, gentleness, and kindness.
  5. Release joy to the oppressed. (see number 3)
  6. Bless, releasing the favor of the Lord. One of the testimonies at class last week was prayer that led to a new soon-to-be-spouse for a sister, releasing her from poverty, physically and spiritually. Our prayers and proclamations release His favor and His joy!
  7. It’s a year-long way of Life!

Is it too much? One small act a day leads to 365 Acts in a year. That’s amazing!

Only believe!
