Often we tend to think of certain times
as being a new start for us or others. We think of each January 1st
or each new school year as a new start. Or we think of moving to a new
place or home as a new start. And that is all well and good. However, the
best new start anyone can have is when he or she becomes a Christian. For
when one becomes a Christian, he or she is truly a new creation!
And even better, once one is a Christian, every moment of every day can also be a new start. Why? Because even when he or she sins, a Christian can still repent and be forgiven for the sin and receive another brand new start--anytime!
We should always be so thankful for every brand new start that we have because of Jesus. He already paid the price for our sins so that, if we are obedient to Him and follow the biblical plan of salvation, we can always have a brand new start!
