New dresses, bursting crackers, visiting friends, sharing sweets… New year demands everything new. Many of us would take many new resolutions. Some of us would pray for new car, new house and so on. Some of us would expect something new to happen and Some would hope for some good to happen atleast this year. All these things are usual with every new year celebrations. But have you ever thought of becoming new?
Wonder how one can become new? The Bible says in 2Corinthians5:17, “Therefore if anyone is in Christ, he is a new creation; the old has gone , the new has come!” God has given so many promises. But inorder to claim those promises, you should be eligible first. He is waiting to bless you abundantly. You may say, ‘I am a sinner, how could God bless me?’ Ofcourse, Jesus hates sin. But He loves sinners. He is not asking you to change yourself before coming to Him. He wants you to come to Him just as you are and He will change your life.
Today you may think that there is no hope, no peace and no one to love you. But the One who created you loves you as you are. He is the ray of hope. He gives you His own peace. All you need to do is repent and ask forgiveness for your sins. Believe that Jesus died for your sins and He will cleanse you from all your sins. He is ready to accept you and bless you abundantly in this new year. So far you would have lived a sinful life. But today He asks you only one thing “Will you turn to me atleast this year?” What is your new year resolution? Wish you a very happy new year in Christ! May God bless you!
