The word ‘theology’ actually comes from two greek words, theos and logos, the former meaning “God” and the latter meaning “word,” and when put together they essentially form “Word about God,” or, perhaps more accurately, “the study, or learning, of God.”
Resolution number five is great for when you’re feeling lazy, in a period of heavy procrastination, or just all around unmotivated. It reads as such: “Resolved, never to lose one moment of time; but improve it the most profitable way I possibly can.”
There’s no denying it – our surroundings affect everything about us. Humans are relational creatures – we adapt and connect with others to survive. Our culture defines everything about us from a worldly perspective – from the food we eat, to the way we spend our time, to the people we socialize with, and the people we avoid. Christians, however, are in a unique position – we need to be counter-cultural while maintaining relevance to our surroundings, and we are called to interrupt the social paradigm while still maintaining relationships with those around us.
How are we sanctified? How does God improve us, how does He make us more holy?
Sometimes if you can spend just two minutes of your life, every once in a while, exploring who God is, who you are, and what it means to be Christian, you can make a huge impact on yourself and others.
