It’s a new year! On this New Year’s day, many are getting together for festivities and making New Year’s resolutions. There is always something refreshing about having a clean slate and a starting again.
As we thank God for the New Year, let us also thank Him for how His power has made us new. In 2 Corinthians 5:17, Paul wrote, “Therefore if any man be in Christ, he is a new creature: old things are passed away; behold, all things are become new.” Because of Christ, we no longer are in bondage to sin. We are new creatures with a new nature. So if you happen to make some resolutions for the new year, don’t make them because of the new year, but because of the new nature you have in Christ.
“And he that sat upon the throne said, Behold, I make all things new.”
