Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, he is a new creation; the old has gone, the new is here!
2 Corinthians 5:17
A blank page, a clear space, a fresh start.
With a new year, we often feel pressure to make resolutions and finally become the best version of ourselves that we can muster. While it’s a good time to make changes as the calendar turns a new page, it’s also good to know that there’s really only one thing that can transform us. The grace of God is freely given to us regardless of how many calories we count or how many workouts we complete. We don’t have to watch less television and eat more vegetables. We only have to ask our Father to forgive us and accept the grace that he so freely gives.
And the good news is that this fresh start is available every day, not just New Year’s Day. God’s forgiveness changes us from the inside out. What better way to begin again than to remember who we are in Christ!

Pray: “Lord, you are the one who changes me. I only have to accept your grace as I follow the example of your Son. Help me to start each day this year by knowing I’m forgiven.”
