Happy NEW Year

I recently read a church sign that said, “Calendars change, but God never does!” Isn’t that wonderful? Here we are experiencing a New Year filled with new resolutions, new problems, new opportunities and who knows what else that will be new to us.
One of my favorite verses from the Bible is found in 2 Corinthians 5:17, where it says, “If anyone is in Christ, the new creation has come: The old has gone, the new is here!” (NIV) That verse tells us that when Christ comes into our lives He makes us into a new creation, something that never existed before.
The Believer is 100% themselves with all their sin and guilt removed and Christ filling every fiber of their being. The Believer is brand new!
Another great passage from Revelation 21:4-5 tells us that God “will wipe every tear from their eyes. There will be no more death’ or mourning or crying or pain, for the old order of things has passed away.”
He who was seated on the throne said, “I am making everything new!” Then he said, “Write this down, for these words are trustworthy and true.” (NIV)
When we get to Heaven we will get to experience new everything! Don’t you sometimes wish you had something new? What if everything in your life were new? In Heaven you will have a new body, new clothes, new relationships, a new name and new experiences you cannot even begin to anticipate yet.
If you are NOT a Believer, I have Good News. You can have a new start today. Romans 6:4 tells us that “We were therefore buried with him through baptism into death in order that, just as Christ was raised from the dead through the glory of the Father, we too may live a new life.” (NIV)
Please contact me and I will be glad to tell you all about this Good News and how you too can have a New Life in Christ!
Happy New Year!
