What about your spiritual life? Is it good, rewarding? Is your spiritual life where you want it to be? Are you confident of your eternal destiny? Scripture assures us that we can be, but are you (1 John 5:13)? These are far more profound considerations than those previously mentioned. Again, most of us would probably like to be stronger spiritually than we are. Most of us would probably like to be more spiritually in tune with what God wants us to be. We would like for our spiritual lives to be better.
So, what are you going to do? Will you simply wish you could be stronger spiritually? Will you take a defeatist attitude and conclude that you can't do any better? Will you just put it out of your mind and let another year go by without any positive spiritual development in your life? What will you do?
This is a great time to refocus. Make a commitment today to work on developing your spiritual life this coming year. Commit to being at church services every time they are scheduled that you can possibly make it. Make up your mind that you'll not look for excuses to miss. Commit to reading the Bible through this year (just three chapters a day, most days, will do it). Make time to pray several times every day. Purposefully concentrate and focus on your spiritual life every day. Commit to allowing your life to be directed and governed by the spiritual values laid out in God's word first. Dedicate yourself to this approach to your life for one year, and see if next year at this time you don't feel better about the place your life has gone.
