Day 7 of Enjoying God: New Beginnings

December 31, 2010 Leave a comment Go to comments

One aspect I appreciate about God is that He gives people a chance to start over.

As I turn my attention toward 2011, I reflect on people (including myself) creating new goals and resolutions for the upcoming year. People love the opportunity to erase the past and start something new.

In Christ, God gives people that opportunity. He gives people the chance to put off the “old man” and put on the “new man.” God allows people to become a new creation in Jesus Christ with new hearts, new attitudes, and new lives.

New beginnings are something we can look forward to. In fact, I think they are a God-ordained blessing in the midst of this fallen, broken world. Perhaps the physical dawning of the new year can represent the spiritual dawn available for people in Christ.
