A 2018 Resolution

CAL THOMAS COMMENTARY DECEMBER 29, 2017

         IT’S NEW YEAR RESOLUTION TIME.

         FOR THE SERIOUS FOLLOWER OF JESUS OF NAZARETH, LET’S RESOLVE TO PLACE LESS EMPHASIS ON THE KINGDOM OF THIS WORLD AND MORE ON THE KINGDOM AND KING NOT OF THIS WORLD?

         FOCUSING SO MUCH ON POLITICS AND WHO IS IN CHARGE OF CONGRESS AND IN THE WHITE HOUSE IS A DISTRACTION AND DISTRACTION IS WHAT OUR GREAT ADVERSARY IS ALL ABOUT. GETTING US TO TAKE OUR EYES EVEN MOMENTARILY OFF JESUS IS HIS GOAL. READ C.S. LEWIS’S “THE SCREWTAPE LETTERS” IF YOU WANT MORE INSIGHT INTO THE WAY THE ENEMY SEEKS TO ROB US OF POWER, WHICH DOES NOT RESIDE IN WASHINGTON.

         HERE’S A RESOLUTION ALL OF US SHOULD ATTEMPT TO KEEP: IN 2018, I WILL BECOME MORE OBEDIENT TO THE COMMANDS OF JESUS, WHO SAID IF YOU LOVE ME YOU WILL KEEP MY COMMANDMENTS. LOOK THEM UP. THEY BECOME EASIER THE MORE YOU DO THEM AND THE BLESSINGS THAT COME FROM OBEDIENCE TO JESUS ARE BETTER THAN ANYTHING THE WORLD AND ITS PRINCE CAN OFFER.

         HAPPY NEW YEAR! I’M CAL THOMAS.
