2 Corinthians 5:17 17 Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, the new creation has come: The old has gone, the new is here! (NIV)

Many people made New Year’s resolutions.  We are good at making resolutions.  We are equally as good at letting those resolutions fade away – some quickly and a few maybe longer.  We look at the first day of a new calendar year as a new beginning.  We actually have a new beginning every time we confess our sins.  After we confess a sin, God not only forgives, He considers the sin as never having been done.  We are renewed through the grace of God.  We can enter this new year not only thinking the first day of the year is a new beginning but each and every morning can be a new beginning.  We only need to confess and repent each night and every morning as the Holy Spirit to quicken within our minds and hearts a new and stronger beginning in loving, obeying and serving God our Father.  Our new creation has come; we only need to recognize and appropriate it.
