I Corinthians 15:1-11
At the start of a new year, many people make resolutions. There is nothing wrong with this. Resolutions can help us clarify direction in our lives. The resolutions we might make could include dropping 10 pounds, eating a more healthy diet, paying off our debts and getting a hold of our spending, or even making and realizing a life changing goal we were always afraid to pursue. As laudable as these goals are, I wish to present the greatest of all goals. Resolve, that in 2011, you be absolutely sure about your eternity. If you succeed in all other goals but fail in this, you have failed in the one goal that ultimately matters. Today, we will restate the gospel, or the good news.
