The four stages of Christian living are illustrated by Israel’s passage from Egypt to the Promised Land. “Going out” is leaving the realm of sin and condemnation, and receiving Christ as Savior. “Going through” is journeying through a wilderness of challenge and testing, producing growth, strength and obedience. “Going in” is making a decision of serious commitment to the Lordship of Christ. “Going on” is receiving, enjoying and leaning upon God’s promises. Determine this will be a year of God’s favor for you, a year of “going on” in His promises.

Set as your goal that of spending quality personal time with God each day this year. Tomorrow, we suggest a method for developing a new spiritual lifestyle.
