All things change but Jesus NEVER changes. “Heaven and earth shall pass away, but my words shall not pass away.”(Matthew 24:35).“Because they have no changes, therefore they fear not God.”(Psalms 55:19b). I personally have had some changes this past year. Have you? “Therefore if any man be in Christ, he is a new creature: old things are passed away; behold, all things are become new.”(2 Corinthians 5:17). Think about the good things that Jesus has done for you. Write them down. Think about the many miracles that the Lord has done for you, even small ones. Remember the loss of a nail caused the loss of a shoe and the loss of a shoe caused the loss of a horse, and the loss of a horse caused the loss of a King, and the loss of a King caused the loss of a Kingdom. All because of the loss of one little nail. (Zechariah 4). Can you see God’s mighty hand working in your life? “Brethren, I count not myself to have apprehended: but this one thing I do, forgetting those things which are behind, and reaching forth unto those things which are before, I press toward the mark for the prize of the high calling of God in Christ Jesus. Let us therefore, as many as be perfect, be thus minded: and if in any thing ye be otherwise minded, God shall reveal even this unto you.”(Philippians 3:13-15). Think of what you have learned to help get you closer to Jesus. Have a good communion. Get clean and right with God, and get a clean slate by faith in the Blood of Jesus Christ, God’s Only Begotten Son. “Now ye are clean through the word which I have spoken unto you.”(John 15:3). “but if we walk in the light, as he is in the light, we have fellowship one with another, and the blood of Jesus Christ his Son cleanseth us from all sin.”(1 John 1:7). Are you closer to Jesus than you were a year ago? “There is therefore now no condemnation to them which are in Christ Jesus, who walk not after the flesh, but after the Spirit. For the law of the Spirit of life in Christ Jesus hath made me free from the law of sin and death.”(Romans 8:1-2). “And we know that all things work together for good to them that love God, to them who are the called according to his purpose.”(Romans 8:28). “being confident of this very thing, that he which hath begun a good work in you will perform it until the day of Jesus Christ:”(Philippians 1:6). “He must increase, but I must decrease.”(John 3:30). If you are closer to Jesus you will be farther from yourself. “For whosoever will save his life shall lose it: but whosoever will lose his life for my sake, the same shall save it.”(Luke 9:24). “I beseech you therefore, brethren, by the mercies of God, that ye present your bodies a living sacrifice, holy, acceptable unto God,which is your reasonable service. And be not conformed to this world: but be ye transformed by the renewing of your mind, that ye may prove what is that good, and acceptable, and perfect, will of God.”( Romans 12:1-2). YOU CAN HAVE A NEW BEGINNING EVERY DAY!
Say this prayer if you want to be saved: Jesus, I want to know you, and to live forever in Heaven, I know I have made mistakes and done bad things- and I am sorry. Please forgive me. I know I don’t deserve it, but I accept your love and I accept you as my Saviour. I believe you died on the cross for my sins and rose from the dead. Please come into my heart and life and fill me with your Holy Spirit and give me peace. Amen.
