At the beginning of every year we always hear a lot about New Year’s resolutions. Most of the time they are very predictable – lose weight, exercise more, stop smoking. For a lot of people these resolutions may have already begun to fade. For us as Christians, however, there is one resolution that never fades, and that is that this will be another year when we get to know Jesus better.
It turns out that the Gospels give us some wonderful insights into Jesus’ person in the way they portray his emotions. As we consider them in the sermon, may it help us to know him better and love him more.
