Colossians 3 verse 10: “and have put on the new man, who is being renewed in knowledge according to the image of the Creator”.
The new year it really is a time for reflection, putting on the newness, we have in Christ Jesus, Our Lord and Our friend.
The newness is not a new license to sin, but to grow in the dependence of God.
The newness gives us a new status, we become joint heirs with Christ Jesus. Romans 8 verses 12 to 17.
Our newness does not give us a new conformity to the world, it gives us a new way of living the world can not understand.
A newness of understanding of living out the new commandment, John 13 verse 34:
A newness of assurance that we are a new creation, in Christ Jesus. 2 Corinthians 5 verse 17:
A newness of in filling of the new wine, Matthew 9 verse 17:
A newness of Joy, to be expressed in our praise and worship to Him, Psalm 33 verse 3:
Isn’t a new year great time to reflect on the newness we have, because of what The Father, The Son and The Holy Spirit have done for us, because of their great love for us.
