Re:Verse reading–Luke 4:14-30 (day five)  vs. 16 “and as was His custom, He entered the synagogue on the Sabbath, and stood up to read.”

The first week in January is when many of us will make resolutions.  Changes, course corrections, and new patterns are all possibilities-  diet, exercise, Bible reading plans.

“Everything Jesus said and did was to make us trust him and imitate him.”- John Piper Jesus’ place on the Sabbath was the synagogue.  It was where reverence and recognition were given to the Lord’s day and His Word.  He was faithful and consistent.  Will we trust and imitate Jesus pattern of attendance?

Will you resolve this year to be in your place on Sunday mornings-  giving reverence to the Lord’s Day and Word?  Will you resolve to be a constantly engaged in the growth and life of a New Testament Church?  Will it be said of you…”As was your custom”

One thought on “Resolution”

  1. It is in the church that God is glorified through Christ Jesus. Jesus founded the New Testament Church, His Church, and it is logical that we do what Christ did as true followers of Christ!

    God approves the type of church that the Lord Jesus founded so, as followers of Christ, we shall follow Christ’s custom for His church. It is only in the church that we, followers of Christ, can demonstrate meaningful reverence to the Lord’s Day and His Word. God prepared Christ Jesus for leading by examples that God approves. Jesus was faithful to God and consistent in building His church so true and faithful followers of Christ should be faithful and consistent in the same direction and pattern that Christ established based on God’s standards.

    New year and resolution go hand-in-hand. I have been long reminded that attending church on Sunday mornings is a good custom and will keep this custom.

    It is in the church that God is glorified through Christ Jesus. I am convinced!!
