My New Beginning Depends on God and Not Someone Else.
- Marrieds: “I will have a New Beginning if my husband/wife chooses to be a better spouse.”
- Singles: “I will have a New Beginning if I can find that perfect mate this year.”
- Employee: “I will have a New Beginning if my boss treats me with respect.”
- Student: “I will have a New Beginning if my teachers will just give me a break.”
My New Beginning Depends on God and Not What I Think About Myself .
I Must Acknowledge That I Need a New Beginning.
Jesus makes the statement, “he who is without sin throw the first stone.” Jesus knew that no person in that crowd was without sin. The woman caught in adultery was in sin, but so were the religious leaders who brought her to Jesus, and so was the crowd that gathered around to watch the event. All have sinned. That means that every single person in the sound of Jesus’ voice that day needed a New Beginning, not just the woman caught in adultery. But she was the only one who got one that day.
God’s New Beginning Will Change My Life
- Begin reading your Bible (again!). Use a reading guide to keep you on track, and consider joining me on Facebook in our Bible Reading group.
- Start a family devotional. There are some great resources to help you. Consider using the Jesus Storybook Bible and read a chapter a night.
- Reexamine what you listen to. Choose to listen to a sermon a week or some new praise and worship music on a regular basis.
- Have an intentional private time of praise and worship. Private worship makes public worship meaningful.
- Go to a marriage retreat or read a book on relationships. This isn’t an expense, it’s an investment!
- Look for ways to serve someone else. Being part of our CARE Team outreaches is a great way to serve others!
