How to Be the Best You
There are a lot of things about me that I don't love. I'm irresponsible. I can be impatient at times. I listen to Ke$ha a lot. There are probably some things you don't love about yourself either. Do you want to improve?
Self Improvement is a Myth
Our culture loves self-improvement. But the problem with self-improvement is that it doesn't exist. God tells us in the Bible that we are evil people outside of His grace. It's impossible for a bad person to bring about good in themselves. On the bright side, we have a perfect God and all good things come from Him (James 1:17). So if you want to improve in 2015, look no further than Jesus.
Jesus Is Your Resolution
Jesus says in John 14:6, "I am the way, the truth, and the life." All of your self-improvement, your purpose, and your happiness lie in Him. He is your resolution. He is your answer. In Him, you will find everything you will ever need. Want to resolve to do something? Get to know Jesus better.
It's Not Complicated
There's no five-step plan or equation to getting to know Jesus better. You don't have to have gone three days without sinning. You don't have to have the Bible memorized. You don't have to pretend to be anyone you're not. He knows everything about you, yet He loves you and wants to hang out with you. Getting to know the person who saved your life is really easy.
- Make it a goal to spend more time with Jesus this year by praying and reading your Bible.
- Try talking to Him throughout your day, while you're at work or school.
