How to Make the Most of the New Year

I just had to share my sermon notes from this past Sunday, the Lord truly laid the perfect sermon on our pastor's heart to share here at the beginning of the year.

How to Make the Most of the New Year

1.  ASSUME responsibility for MY life  (For each one will bear his own load,.Galatians 6:5)
  • Accusers- blame others
  • Excuser's - reason for every failure.
  • Choosers - assume responsibility for their own life


2.  BELIEVE I can change.  Only the power of the Lord Jesus allows us to change. (I can do all things through Him who strengthens me., Philippians 4:13)
3.  CLARIFY what's most important (All things are lawful, but not all things are profitable.  All things are lawful, but not all things edify., 1 Corinthians 10:23)

  • What do I value?
  • What is most important?
  • What do I need to make most important in my life?
4. DON'T WAIT to begin (He who watches the wind will not sow and he who looks at the clouds will not reap., Ecclesiastes 11:4)

Give your life to the things that are lasting.

My Personal Development Goals
  • Intellectual: What do I want to learn?  Proverbs 19:8
  • Physical:  What will improve my health?  Proverbs 17:22
  • Spiritual:  What will deepen my relationship to God?  2 Peter 3:18
  • Social:  What will be my ministry to others?  1 Peter 4:10
Be SMART in your goals:

Track-able (measure your progress)

It's time to get off the bench spiritually and physically and make 2010 a year empowered by the Lord Jesus Christ.
