A Fresh Start
2 Corinthians 5:17 So if anyone is in Christ, there is a new creation: everything old has passed away; see, everything has become new!
One of the things that I like to do at this time of the year, is to wipe the slate clean, because I don’t know about you, but I made some mistakes this past year.
I try to get things right, but of course none of us get it right all the time, right? And yet sadly, what so many people do is that they carry over their regrets from week to week, month to month … year to year.
Why carry forward all this rubbish from the past? If you’ve made a mistake, do your best to fix it … and learn from it … and move on.
Repeating the same mistakes over and over again, after all, is just crazy.
One of the great blessings that comes with the forgiveness – God’s forgiveness – the complete forgiveness that anyone who believes in Jesus has received, is that you don’t have to keep living in the regrets of the past.
Each day, each month, each year … is a fresh start.
Yah. It’s a Jesus thing.
