There is an opportunity before us. God is giving us the chance to put our past behind us and to start anew.
Accept the New Beginning Offered
For we died and were buried with Christ by baptism. And just as Christ was raised from the dead by the glorious power of the Father, now we also may live new lives. Romans 6:4 NLT
God offers us a fresh start. Through our relationship with Jesus, we can live a new life. He gives us everything we need to turn from our old ways and embark on a new path. On the Cross, Christ dealt with our past. He eliminated it as a factor. We can let it go.
There is therefore now no condemnation for those who are in Christ Jesus. Romans 8:1 ESV
If you are still bogged down by your past or by sin in your life now, then I encourage you to discover the first step toward a new life. Freedom is out there and it is readily available to you. All you have to do is reach out to God for it.
You see, our God is the God of new beginnings. He wants to radically change your life for the better. Jesus likened it to being born again. If that’s not a chance to start over from the beginning, then I don’t know what is!
Now Is the Time for a New Life
What are you waiting for? Get up and be baptized. Have your sins washed away by calling on the name of the Lord. Acts 22:16 NLT
Jesus is prepared to completely renovate your life if you will let Him! He is ready and waiting for your next move. He stands at the door and knocks (Rev 3:20). What are you waiting for? Whether you are a new believer or a long-time Christ Follower, there is a next step for you. He wants to take you to the next level. It is time to live a new life!
