Every year as the clock strikes midnight on December 31, people around the world cheer and welcome a new year. Lists are written, goals are made, resolutions are shared.
Something in us just loves a fresh start.
There is much to commend in setting goals and making resolutions. To search oneself and desire to change for the better is a worthwhile undertaking indeed! Yet as we dive headlong into this new year you might ask yourself… Am I seeking to change myself, or am I seeking the One Who can truly change me?
Our God is a God of new beginnings!
Remember not the former things,
nor consider the things of old.
Behold, I am doing a new thing;
now it springs forth, do you not perceive it?
I will make a way in the wilderness
and rivers in the desert.
This month the Do Not Depart team will be exploring God’s Word for the new beginnings God offers us in Jesus Christ. This is a fresh start that is for eternity!
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
