Resolutions

Spoken word poem remembering God's great resolution: 'It is finished'

At New Years we make new promises, goals and resolutions, but time and again we fail to fulfil our self-help lists. This spoken word poem is a great reminder of the one who’s New Year’s resolution rid the world of sin and gave us absolution. Unlike us, Jesus can check 10 out of 10; he passed day one, day two, day three. God’s Son brought an end to death and worldly strife, to bring us eternal life. How amazing this New Year that we can find rest remembering God’s resolution of grace and salvation. When He made his resolution, He said “It is finished”.

Video Transcript

A new year is here and so we make new promises,
New habits, goals, chances, new focuses.
Out with the old and ridden of addictions,
Because maybe then there’ll be more benedictions.
But wait. Day two. And you know what I’m going to say,
I’ve only just started and already I’m astray.
Seeking the things I’ve promised to put away,
But hey!
At least I had a good detox day…
Until next year, we’ll try again.
Striving to check our resolutions, ten out of ten.

I don’t know, but to me there’s something missing,
Because resolution means resolved, it is finished, it is done,
And I heard that’s what happened when God sent His one and only Son,
It was the final blessing.
The Great I Am made His New Year’s resolution,
To rid the world of sin and give us absolution.
From Old Testament to New covenant, unlike you and me,
He past day one, day two, day three –
His resurrection grants us eternal life,
Free from death and worldly strife.
See, God’s Resolution was made for you and me,
So I make my resolution to bow to His Holy decree.
It. Is. Finished.

Why do I have to pay?

There are over 100 videos on this site available for free. We’re very grateful for the organisations and churches that have kindly given permission for their videos to be available free for you to download.

However, there are hundreds of individual Christian creators and smaller charities who would love to create video content but can’t afford to make it free to download. The reality is that even a relatively simple video takes a long time to create. It requires lots of time scripting, planning, filming, editing and promoting as well as the use of expensive filming equipment and editing software.

Go Chatter Videos would love to be able to channel funds to Christian creatives, enabling them to continue making great videos that resource churches, youth groups and schools. 100% of the money we receive from the sales of this New Year’s Resolution video will go to roarlight (the organisation that created this video).

They’ll be using that money towards funding their next video project. Paying a small amount for this video ultimately means more videos for churches in the future.

We won’t be removing the videos that are free on the site, and we won’t be switching to charge for them. We’re trialing selling this video with the view to offering a wider number of videos in the future some which would be free and some paid for. We hope to have hundreds more free videos soon and hundreds of paid videos. This will give churches and individuals a greater variety of videos they can download whether free or paid, and encourage the Christian creative industry by helping to fund more videos.
