Praise be to the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ! In his great mercy he has given us new birth into a living hope through the resurrection of Jesus Christ from the dead. 1 Peter 1:3 (NIV)
In four days’ people will be celebrating the start of a New Year. 2016 will be here, and for many they will be hoping that the new year will bring a fresh start.
Are you one of them? Are you planning your resolutions and looking forward to being a new person in the new year? Are you looking forward to new beginnings in your life?
You don’t have to wait for a new year to start over. I am going to give you that opportunity right now.
Bring all your baggage to me. Leave it at my feet and you can walk away a new person. Whatever is in your past is forgiven and forgotten. It is blotted out from my memory.
“I, even I, am he who blots out your transgressions, for my own sake, and remembers your sins no more.” Isaiah 43:25 (NIV)
When you come to me, you will be reborn as my child. You won’t be the same as you once were. Your new life will come with new fruit; love, joy, peace… and more. Life with me, includes my Spirit, which I have sent to be your counselor and guide. There is so much more that you will discover as we walk together. Won’t you come to me? Won’t you begin this new life today?
My offer of a new beginning is not a “once a year” offer but one that is available to you 365 days a year, seven days a week, 24 hours a day. Have you accepted it yet? If you have accepted my offer read and memorize 2 Corinthians 5:17 Let my words be a balm to your heart.
