I was thinking earlier today that 2 things I want to work on in the New Year of 2016 is to enjoy life and fight sin (some background here: https://anythingisprogress.wordpress.com/2014/07/27/enjoying-life-and-glorifying-god/).
I just heard on the radio that a recent survey shows that the top resolution of many people is to enjoy life to the fullest in 2016. What a coincidence!
I’m not the only one who wants to release themselves from busy-ness and constant connectedness. What should be added, though, is an active participation in fighting, in both ourselves and in others, the sin that gets us hung up in life.
While we are desiring and seeking the good in life, we need to fight the bad.
So enjoy your new year, but be ready to dig in and get dirty, too.
