Therefore, if any one is in Christ, he is a new creation; the old has gone, the NEW HAS COME! 2 Corinthians 5:17
Since I am in Christ, he is always willing to give me a new start - you too. Jesus cares about the areas of your life that cause you to feel stressed. He wants to help those who need to lose weight do so. SmokingÖ he can help you overcome. Drug abuse, lost families, he specializes in fixing the broken! Canít find anything when you need it, he even cares about that! Whatever troubles you he cares. More importantly, he alone has the power to help us to overcome our failures.
There is one condition - we must be in Christ. To be in him we have to accept His offer to rescue us from the path of sin and death. He is asking you today one thing:
Will you allow me to come into your heart and change you from the inside out? I have paid the price for everything you have ever done and I am willing to forgive you. All you have to do is believe me.
Or, if you are already in Christ, he is offering you a chance for success through him:
Beloved, I can overcome this. Nothing is impossible for me. Work with me, do your part and Iíll supply the difference. All Iím waiting on is for you to depend on me.
What will it be? Another year of broken resolutions or a real chance at success. The choice is yours and mine, I choose hopeÖ
What a year we have hadÖsome wonderful memories were made, some heartbreaking times we went through. This year I want to be different than last year. Will you help me? Will you show me what to do? Will you put people in my path to help and at the same time teach me to accept help? Let my old year pass away and let the new come. We love you! Amen
