New Year’s Resolution – Prove Yourself
The New Living Translation of 2Peter 1:10 goes like this:
So, dear brothers and sisters, work hard to prove that you really are among those God has called and chosen. Do these things, and you will never fall away.
The more popular phrasing is “to make your calling and election sure”. Without getting into a theological debate over what translation is more accurate to the original language, think about the wording of the NLT. If only all Christians worked hard to prove to the world that they have been changed by God. Perhaps the best resolution any of us could make for the new year.
