This time of year, a lot of people have goals, called resolutions, that they are trying to see accomplished. These can have a lot to do with being healthier in their bodies, minds and spirits, getting better at certain habits, and getting rid of bad habits.
Reading the Bible each day is a great way to learn how to be better, healthier and stronger in all the ways of life, and when we read it, it can bring to life in us some of the special skills it takes to accomplish our goals. Prayer is also very important to helping us stay close to Jesus and on the right path of life.
Just like we can get excited about the New Year, and all the new things that might happen, we can learn in our Bible about being new in Jesus, and we can celebrate that we are new creations when Jesus is our savior.
“Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, he is a new creation; the old has gone, the new has come!” 2 Corinthians 5:17
What are some ways you can trust Jesus to help you in the New Year?
