Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, the new creation has come: The old has gone, the new is here! - 2 Corinthians 5:17

Dear Jesus, 

New Year's day always feels good because it's like starting over with a clean record.  But it's a pale image of what you have really done for me by redeeming my soul.  Every morning I awake to a new day as a new creation in you.  This verse reminds me that I am always new in you.  My sins, and my old sinful attitude are replaced with faith and love because I have come to know how much you love me.  I'm always in a New Year in my heart because you push the refresh button every day by washing me clean from sin. I will live today believing that you have forgotten my sins.  It will get my year off to a great start.  Lead in this path of peace and hope into a productive and exciting year with you. 

Amen

Pastor Don Patterson
