Well, the new year is upon us, and resolutions are underway. I’ve resolved to learn more about God this year.

There are many different religions out there, and each seems to bring a different view of how to worship God. I like the churches that focus on what the Bible reveals. Some say the Bible is too difficult to understand, but I’ve found that if I pray to God for understanding before reading, he will answer, because he wants everyone to know who he is and what his plan is for us.

I wanted to know for sure if I will be going to heaven when I die. Fortunately, I found a good Bible-believing church that pointed out the Bible verses that lead us to heaven, such as John 3:16, John 14:6 and Romans 10:13.

I’ve heard it said that there is a lifetime of wonderful reading about who God is in the Bible. After more than 20 years, I find it to be true and am excited to look deeper into God’s word in this new year. This indeed will be another great year.
