Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, he is a new creation; old things have passed away; behold, all things have become new.  2 Corinthians 5:17


As we start each new year, many of us will think of what we can do better this year, how we can start afresh with goals and challenges, some even consider it a 2nd chance to get something right.

All those years ago when that precious baby was born in a manager, that is the gift God gave to us.  A chance to accept that baby, Jesus, as our personal Saviour and become new -- a new person in Him. 

Happy Sonday and Happy New Year!

Thanks Melanie.
This is such a great word, I make my students copy it out each time I give them a new exercise book at the start of the year. I tell them - God gives you a new start with nothing hanging over from the past, he takes your sins away from you as far as the east is from the west (that's as far as possible!) Your life is a blank page
