A Lifetime of New Beginnings

Spectacular New Year's Day FireworksI think that one of the reasons why people view a new year as such a big deal is that we all long for new beginnings and a fresh start. I know I have bad and unhealthy habits Iā€™d like to get rid of and improvements I'd like to make. I'm not alone, judging by all the resolutions people make. Maybe those resolutions are a subtle recognition that we recognize things in ourselves are not what they should be. Kind of like our relationship with God. Our rebellion (sin) has broken our connection to Him, and we desperately need that to change.

God has made it possible to have a personal relationship with Him by offering the blood of His only Son, Jesus, to pay for our sins. All we need to do is put our faith in Jesus and in His finished work of redemption for us (If you'd like to know more about how this works, please send us an email. We'd be honored to answer any questions you may have.). One of the cool things about being a follower of Christ is that he doesn't just change our relationship with Him, He changes US. In fact, the believer in Christ is being made new day-by-day. Every day truly is a new beginning for a Christian. Here's how the Bible explains it:

  • Revelation 21:5 ā€“ "And He (Jesus) who sits on the throne said, "Behold, I am making all things new." And He said, "Write, for these words are faithful and true.'" (NASB)

  • 2 Corinthians 5:15 ā€“ "Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, he is a new creation; old things have passed away; behold, all things have become new.ā€ (NKJV - emphasis mine)
