A New Start …
“Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, he is a new creation. The old has passed away; behold, the new has come.” 2 Corinthians 5:17
So another year is upon us , I’m sure a million new years resolutions have been made. In my case they mostly involve stepping up my battle against the flab and trying to focus a bit more in school, but I’m all to well aware that by the end of month ,fortnight,week ? I’ll be stuffing my face and will be spending most of the time in class daydreaming. And my supposed new start will be spoilt.
Ultimately there is only one true new start and that is the new life that is offered by God.
We messed up and we still mess up we turned and are still turning our back on God but he is the God of forgiveness , the God that has not and will not give up on us no matter how many times we fail. All he asks us to do is turn to him confess our sins and say sorry he will not turn you away .
The only true new start is this “new creation” , and that is only achieved by loving and trusting in Jesus.
