New Start? - New Life!
Stuff happens! Life's like that! Get over it! How many times are those words said to someone who is experiencing difficulty?
But what about when they are feeling that life has no purpose? It's then that questions come.
And they keep on wanting to be answered. And we keep on wondering if this is all there is.
"God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son, that whoever believes in Him should not perish but have everlasting life," John 3'16.
But what does that have to do with having a new start?
Well, for the most part the old ways don't work. And having lived your life according to your own choices you have made some bad ones. Perhaps some very bad ones.
Guilt, disappointment, dissatisfaction and the sense of hopelessness hover around every day. Perhaps you feel that you don't deserve the chance of a new life.
However, the Bible words above go on to say:
"For God did not send His Son into the world to condemn the world, but that the world through Him might be saved," John 3'17.
Saved? - Yes, saved from the consequences of all the old things. The fact is that no one actually deserves the chance of a new life because it cannot be deserved.
But, God offers a new life and a new start, for free.
How does He do that? Through the man Jesus Christ! Jesus lived a life that was perfect and acceptable to God.
When He completed it He was killed, by being crucified on a cross. His death paid a price so that every sin and wrong thing (which is basically against God) could be forgiven and erradicated.
You can leave your past behind and receive the power that God offers - and be really alive. Only He can make this offer.
It's life-changing and it's a revolution with a difference - love.
