The Promise of New Beginnings!
As the new year approaches, I'm reminded of new beginnings. Are there any promises more wonderful to consider than these:
Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, he is a new creation;
the old has gone, the new has come!
-II Corinthians 5:17
If we confess our sins,
he is faithful and just and will forgive us our sins
and purify us from all unrighteousness.
-I John 1:9
In the first verse, we are assured that if we come to Christ as Savior, we become NEW. Our sinful past is wiped away: we are clean as the fresh fallen snow. And, if we should sin again, we have the promise in the second verse that if we confess our sin, He will forgive us again and purify us from all unrighteousness.
Can you think of anything that can separate God's child from His love?
Can you think of any reason why you should not take God up on His offer of new beginnings?
