Let me start by asking you a question: It is now February; where are you with your goals for 2018? Or why do you have these goals? Would you consider changing them?

Typically, our main New Year's goals are focused on subjects like dieting, improving finances, or reading our Bible through for the year. Even though these goals are not bad, here are some things to consider:

The Finished Work Of Christ's Sacrifice

John 19:30, "When Jesus therefore had received the vinegar, he said, It is finished: and he bowed his head, and gave up the ghost."

"... It is finished: ..." The work of salvation is completely accomplished. When the work of salvation was finished on the cross, our sin debt was paid in full.

James 1:21-22

Thank you for reading this devotional today. As these first few days of 2018 have come and gone, I pray it is already proving to be a great year. I pray more importantly that we are allowing God to do what He wants with our lives. There is no better way to live. As I was meditating on the thought of being used of God, the Lord took me back to a passage of Scripture that I had studied recently. He reminded me of what is necessary to live for Him. I would like to share some thoughts with you of how to live for God. While this is certainly not an exhaustive list, I have found it to be a great place to start.
