What better way to begin a new year than with a letter straight from the heart of Jesus? The church at Thyatira had been doing great things, but the people in it hadn't been guarding the purity of their church or its members. Many people are making so-called New Year's resolutions right now, and the best resolution we can make is that to stand for righteousness and not have a tolerance for sin, especially in our own lives. Jesus has a standard for His church based on who He is, not how great our deeds are. Let's line up our lives with His standard!
