Happy New Year, Happy New You!
Many people start the new year by making New Year resolutions. They resolve - make a decision - to lose weight, pay off debt, or overcome other challenges. Here’s a resolution to help us live victoriously in every way: resolve to being brand new in Christ!
2 Corinthians 5:17 explains: Anyone in Christ is a new creature; old things have passed away and all things become new. We become new in Christ by accepting salvation. Salvation makes us part of God’s family. It gives us unlimited access to God’s healing, guidance, protection and preservation. We are even saved from death! John 3:16 promises that when we believe in Jesus Christ we will not perish (die) but instead, have everlasting life. Even when we die in this world, we will live forever in God’s. That’s amazing! We can live joyous lives here and in the hereafter through salvation and it’s so easy, just 3 steps, found in Romans 10:9-13. I call them the ABC’s of Salvation:
Admit (Confess) that Jesus is Lord
Believe in your heart that God raised Jesus from the dead, and
Call on the Name of the Lord (God’s authority) to lead you
By taking these steps we are saved! We become new people in Christ. We’re not just rehabilitated; we’re reborn! God helps us let go of old habits and develop beautiful new ones. Accept salvation, find a good church and allow God to change you into the glorious child of God that we all are meant to be. Our bad in the past will be gone and forgotten, and each day will offer a new opportunity to grow in the love, peace and knowledge of God. Happy new you!

with excellence, are posted here each month.
