It is almost time for a new year to begin. The old is over and a fresh page has been turned. We each have resolved to do at least one thing differently and aim to make this next year even better than the rest. While diets and fitness resolutions abound along with promises of commitment, we can find peace in the fact that God's mercies are new EVERY morning! As we live by faith, we find out that every step closer to God brings about something new. Walking in love, we become the messenger of a new hope to someone's life. A fresh passion is ignited as we affirm God's call in the life of those around us. Our journeys are as unique and authentic as the life of Christ flowing through them! Every day is a new day when our focus is on the will of Christ. Will you allow the love of Christ to bring newness to your life in 2016? In what areas are you going to challenge yourself spiritually? Remember that more important than all the other resolutions, allowing Christ to permeate our journeys is the most significant one that we can make!
Titus 3:4-6New Living Translation (NLT)
When God our Savior revealed his kindness and love,5 he saved us, not because of the righteous things we had done, but because of his mercy. He washed away our sins, giving us a new birth and new life through the Holy Spirit.[a]6 He generously poured out the Spirit upon us through Jesus Christ our Savior.
