Fresh Start

Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, he is a new creation.The old has passed away; behold, the new has come. 2 Corinthians 5:17
 
Want a fresh start, a renewal, a clean slate? Congratulations! You’ve had it from the moment you accepted Jesus as Lord and Savior.

As a grade school student, I loved to be the student chosen to erase the teacher’s blackboard. I felt a certain satisfaction from erasing the old and preparing for the new. There was a feeling of anticipation for things to come. Jesus can erase your past with one swipe of His eraser. The past is past and you are a new person.

To accomplish renewal in our daily lives, we must purpose to change the old and prepare for the new. Scripture will guide us and prayer will give us the strength and fortitude to follow through.



We can have a fresh start each and every day.
 
Great is His faithfulness; His mercies begin afresh each morning. Lamentations 3:23
