Be Made New Again!
We are all happy to see 2020 behind us and look forward to the promise of 2021. Each new year, we offer declarations and resolutions to make some changes in our lives. We consider getting a new body through exercise, right eating, or maybe we declare that we will let go of bad habits, bad relationships and bad behavior. We’re all hoping for a better, brighter, healthier, happier year.
The truth is that we as Christian believers were made new when we accepted Christ as our Lord and Savior. The bible says in 2 Corinthians 5:17, that if any man be in Christ, he is a new creature; old things are passed away; behold all things are new.
Not only were we made brand new then, we can become new again, transformed anytime by the renewing of our minds. Romans 12:2 tells us to “be not conformed to this world; but be ye transformed by the renewing of your mind…”
So as we move into a new year, and make our declarations and resolutions, let them be girded by the truth and process of God.
1. Renew your mind with the water of the Word. Take on God’s thoughts toward and about you, rather than what the world says about you. Practice looking at yourself in the mirror and hear God’s Word that says ‘you are fearfully and wonderfully made”. (Psalm 139:14)
2. Think about things that are positive, that are inspiring, that are uplifting . (Philippians 4:8)
3. Take a nature walk. Elevate your faith by seeing all that God has created. Will he not do more for you than the birds of the air? ( Matthew 6:26-34)
4. Breathe! The Lord will put breath in you and make you live again (Ezekiel 37.5)
