As we enter 2018, let's be reminded that In John 15:5, Jesus Christ tells his followers "...apart from me you can do nothing."

This year, let's resolve to build healthy spiritual HABITS to pursue the Lord and bring Him glory!

To pray. 

To listen. 

And to respond to the Holy Spirit throughout each day.
