How's your "new year" going?

Mine's going well....the message at church yesterday was full of food for thought...and action.  We're studying 1 John right now.  Yesterday we were in chapter 2.  I really love this verse.

 "But you have an anointing from the Holy One, and you know all things.  I have not written to you because you do not know the truth, but because you know it,
 and that no lie is of the truth."  1 John 2:20-21

No lie comes from the truth.
There are so many different things going on in the world my world. Sometimes decisions we have to make seem a little gray.  But there's no possible harmony between a lie and the truth.  Things are black (sin) or white (truth)...there are no gray areas.
As a Christian I know the's in the Word of God, it's revealed to me by the
 Holy's from Jesus Christ Himself.
I'd like to spend 2015 focusing on the truth, standing up to the lies, reacting the way
 God wants me to react in various situations.
I want to rely on His life within me.
I "have an anointing from the Holy One".
I want to use it.
