Make a change
Have you ever wished you could start again? At a click of a button, go back to the beginning and have a second chance – be a different you to the one that you currently are?
The question is how do you do that?
Step by step
The process of changing some things in life is fairly obvious. Do you want to lose weight? Simple – Watch what you eat. Do you want to get fit? Easy – Start doing exercise. Maybe you want a better job? You need to acquire the skills and work on your CV. But how to make changes in other areas can be less apparent.
Most of us have at some stage wished we could be different. Maybe you want to be more confident or you would like to be more self-controlled? How about being wiser, having a more engaging personality or just being happier. Is it really possible to change and be a new you? Or do we need to accept who and what we are and make the best of it?
“…anyone who belongs to Christ has become a new person. The old life is gone; a new life has begun!” – 2 Corinthians 5:17
Somethings are hard to change. You can’t wish yourself shorter or permanently change your eye colour. Even letting go of a bad temper or breaking certain habits can be tricky, but the Bible tells us exactly how we can have a fresh start if we want one.
A helping hand
One of the reasons Jesus, God’s only Son, was born and died was so that you could draw a line under your previous life and get a brand-new beginning. When you accept the gift of a new beginning with Jesus, your past mistakes and bad choices are no longer held against you and God sees you as a new person, without any faults or issues. He takes away the things that keep us separated from God and held in a life which is less than He intended for us to live and give us a life of abundance and purpose.
