close of the year is an excellent time for the making of new
resolutions for the year to come.
Let us, beloved
brethren, make plenty of good resolves respecting what we shall be
willing to be, to do, to suffer, in fellowship with our Lord; that
we may by His grace make of it the best year thus far of our
lives the year of largest hopes, of largest endeavours, and by the
Lordís grace, of largest successes in self-sacrifice, in overcoming
the world and its spirit, in vanquishing self and the desires of the
flesh, in resisting the Adversary, and in glorifying our Lord and
blessing His people.
