It’s a New Year - a Fresh Start!

Published Date: January 8, 2018

SCRIPTURE:

He who was seated on the throne said, “I am making everything new!” Then he said, “Write this down, for these words are trustworthy and true.”
(Revelation 21:5 NIV)

DEVOTIONAL:

At the beginning of a new year, many of us are ready for a fresh, new start. Health, financial, family challenges, tragedies, goals not realized . . . Are you looking back with regret over lost opportunities or things that didn’t go the way you expected? Even if 2017 was a great year for you, there’s just something about a new year that renews and refreshes our vision, hope and dreams for the future.

Well, God is the Master of “new!” Revelation, chapter 21, describes the new heaven and new earth that He has planned for those who are awaiting the Lord’s soon return. And, the New Jerusalem has been prepared for God’s kingdom people: “And he (the apostle John) carried me away in the Spirit to a mountain great and high, and showed me the Holy City, Jerusalem, coming down out of heaven from God. It shone with the glory of God, and its brilliance was like that of a very precious jewel, like a jasper, clear as crystal…” (verses 10-11).

Wow—And, that’s just the beginning of what God has in store for those who have received Jesus as their Savior and Lord. My friend, have you made this important decision in your life? If not, please pray this life-changing prayer today.

PRAYER:

Dear God, I believe that Jesus is the Son of God and that He took the punishment for my sin on the cross. I believe that Jesus was raised from the dead and because of this, I can know that someday I will be resurrected to live with Him forever. I repent of my sins and ask Jesus to be my Savior and Lord. In Jesus’ Name, Amen.

(If you prayed that prayer and meant it in your heart, you are now born again into the family of God. Begin talking with God (prayer), learning His ways (Read the Bible.) and become a part of His family (Attend a Bible-believing, Spirit-filled church.) Click Here to Begin Your New Life!

"There remaineth therefore a rest to the people of God. For he that is entered into his rest, he also hath ceased from his own works, as God did from his. Let us labour therefore to enter into that rest, lest any man fall after the same example of unbelief." - Hebrews 4:9-11 (King James Version -KJV)
