Grace: The Key to Keeping Your New Year’s Resolution

Colin MacIver

Colin doesn’t have a lot of hope in New Year’s resolutions…but he does have a lot of hope in God’s grace, the key to keeping your New Year’s resolution.

Our resolutions have a higher likelihood of sticking when we don’t have to do it entirely on our own willpower. Grace is the gift from God that gives us the strength to do his will.

Being open to grace is what makes keeping your New Year’s resolution possible – especially those resolutions that are helpful to our faith journey.

Snippet from the Show

Progress is not found or won simply by our own efforts. It’s won by grace.

Meet Your Host, Colin MacIver:

Colin MacIver, host of the Tightrope podcast, with his family

Colin is an enthusiastic transplant to vibrant Louisiana, where he lives with his beautiful wife Aimee and two energetic children, Leo and Zélie. His juggling act involves being a husband, a dad, a teacher, a youth minister, a musician and a national Ascension content creator and trainer.

In his spare time, he eats too many crawfish, savors king cake, plays one-on-one kickball with his son, and tries, for the life of him, to properly load the dishwasher.
