HAPPY NEW YEAR !
1 Peter 1:3 NIV
3 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
It’s New Year’s Day and while we celebrate the beginning of a New Year I desired to provide a verse that would tie in with the New Year. Often times we see a picture of a the past year dying and the new year as a baby in diapers. While this is in reality silly, it does show that each year (actually each day) we can begin anew a walk in our lives.
The question is, what kind of walk will it be? If we focus on God’s great mercy and how He has given us new birth into a living hope through the resurrection of Jesus Christ from the dead then we can look forward to continuing or renewing our walk with our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ!
There may be festivities, family, and even football, but our central and core thought should be about our walk with Jesus who paid the price for our sins so we can look past everything in this world and look forward to the next – eternity with Him and His Father, now our Father as well.
Blessings and Happy New Year!
