I write to all in this manner stating if you want to make a resolution then here is one.
I resolve to our Father in heaven to hold the First and second commandments. By loving my one and only God with all my heart, with all my mind, with all my soul, and with all my strength.
Remember this would be a vow in God’s eyes. I resolve to use the remaining eight commandments as my support throughout my new journey with my Father in heaven.
This would be a life and spiritual resolution changing our lives. There are points in support of a refreshed walk.
We have the means prescribed for preventing our apostasy, and promoting our fidelity and perseverance, Hebrews 10:24,25, &c. He mentions several as, 1. That we should consider one another, to provoke to love and to do good works. Christians ought to have a tender consideration and concern for one another they should affectionately consider what their several wants, weaknesses, and temptations are and they should do this, not to reproach one another, to provoke one another not to anger, but to love and good works, calling upon themselves and one another to love God and Christ more, to love duty and holiness more, to love their brethren in Christ more, and to do all the good offices of Christian affection both to the bodies and the souls of each other. A good example given to others is the best and most effectual provocation to love and good works 2. Not to forsake the assembling of ourselves together, Hebrews 10:25. It is the will of Christ that his disciples should assemble together, sometimes more privately for conference and prayer, and in public for hearing and joining in all the ordinances of gospel worship. There were in the apostles’ times, and should be in every age, Christian assemblies for the worship of God, and for mutual edification. And it seems even in those times there were some who forsook these assemblies, and so began to apostatize from religion itself. The communion of saints is a great help and privilege, and a good means of steadiness and perseverance hereby their hearts and hands are mutually strengthened 3. To exhort one another, to exhort ourselves and each other, to warn ourselves and one another of the sin and danger of backsliding, to put ourselves and our fellow-christians in mind of our duty, of our failures and corruptions, to watch over one another, and be jealous of ourselves and one another with a godly jealousy. This, managed with a true gospel spirit, would be the best and most cordial friendship 4. That we should observe the approaching of times of trial, and be thereby quickened to greater diligence: So much the more, as you see the day approaching. Christians ought to observe the signs of the times, such as God has foretold.
