“The old life is gone; a new life has begun! And all of this is a gift from God, who brought us back to himself through Christ.” (II Corinthians 5: 17-18, New Living Translation)
Happy New Year! Welcome to a new day and a new outlook. Start today with gratitude, because this fresh reality is His gift to us.
Renewal and rebirth is a wonderful concept to get our juices flowing. When a new year begins, we feel especially compelled to embark on a better approach to life, to let go of old things, and to refresh. We can do this without willfulness and pushing. We can progress without a sense of somehow denigrating our past or judging ourselves. We can accomplish this bright vision with God, our infinite Life, and not on our own.
Because God’s purpose is supporting us! We are always new, because God’s creation is forever appearing. His ideas are timeless and spiritual, they are built of immutable substance, His own qualities, having infinite occasions to shine.
Our awareness of this fact is our rebirth. This Christ-message of our spiritual selfhood and Oneness with Life, has set us free to realize new things every day. It has awakened us to the reality that our life is not mortal—an inevitable tapering path from birth to death—but a rich unfolding of God’s own goodness, never stale, always right, progressive, expansive, and satisfying.
Let’s accept this great invitation today—to be made new in God’s promises and to see what God’s radiant day has in store!
