Whenever we’re about to enter a brand new year, somewhere deep within our hearts, there is a longing for change. We want to change old habits or relationships that has kept us away from the blessings we know God has prepared for us. Change is not always easy, but when we do it to please God, the effort will all be worth it. It may seem hard at first, but with the help of the Holy Spirit & guidance of the Word, we can overcome everything.
Since you have heard about Jesus and have learned the truth that comes from Him, throw off your old sinful nature & your former way of life. Instead, let the Spirit renew your thoughts and attitudes. Put on your new nature, created to be like God—truly righteous and holy. (Ephesians 4:21-24)
