Today people everywhere are gathering together to celebrate the first bright moments of the new year.
Yet, for thousands of others, this day will be the toughest 24 hrs of their lives. For those people, New year's Day will serve only as a dim reminder of loneliness and loss. It will simply mark the beginning of another year of failure.
What about you?
I want you to know something. All that can change in an instant. You can start your life over today and make this New Year's Day the most joyful day of your life!
How many times have you said to yourself, "If I could just start over, I'd do it all differently"? That doesn't have to be simply an idle wish. Jesus Christ has actually made it possible. That's His Christmas present to you. He paid the price for all your sins. He paid the penalty for all your mistakes.
That's the reason He came to earth. That's the reason He was born- so you could start over!
How can you make a new start?
Romans 10:9 says that " If you will confess with your mouth the Lord Jesus, and believe in your heart that God raised him from the dead, you will be saved." It's as easy as saying " Jesus, I'm turning my life over to you. From this day forward I am Yours."
