2014 is almost here! Can you believe it? Time has flown by! The only real way I know the new year is upon us? That wacky animated special that features Rudolph, a vulture, and Happy, the new year’s baby with the giant ears and top hat, keeps playing on my TV.
Are you stocking up on fireworks, black-eyed peas and cabbage? I’m leaving the pyrotechnics to the pros, and I’m going to give my resolutions to the Pro, too.
Will you be making goals for the new year? It’s just beginning, and this can be a great time to focus on making a fresh start. But it can be tough to break those old habits.
Thankfully, God has already done a work in us. 2 Corinthians 5:17 says “Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, the new creation has come: The old has gone, the new is here!”
It’s not just a new year that’s about to begin – WE are new! We’ve been changed because of Christ! That’s a change worth celebrating. (With or without a top hat, fireworks and black-eyed peas.)
Happy New Year!
