The Resolutions of Ezra
For Ezra had set his heart to study the law of the Lord and to practice it, and to teach His statutes and ordinances in Israel. – Ezra 7:10
Take note! God didn’t inspire this writing to be ignored! If you are even thinking about new years resolutions, consider these determinations of Ezra from the Old Testament, who, by the way, serves a living God even now, for our God is the God of those eternally living!
In the passage above, Ezra:
- Set his heart to study the Law of God.
- Was determined to obey and practice it in daily life.
- Was determined to teach others to do the same.
If anyone is going to make new years resolutions, I can’t think of anything better than this!
