New Hope, New Life, New Mercy, New Love!

Happy almost New Year! 2020 is coming whether we’re ready for it or not. The New Year always brings thoughts of new hopes and dreams that we have for our lives. We make resolutions, we buy gym memberships, we plan dream vacations, and we say this is going to be the year…

This week I hope to encourage you to see what you already have in Christ! To be encouraged to live in the new life that we have in Christ! If you have known the Lord for a long time or are a new believer, these are truths that are a reality for all of us in Christ. The Bible tells us in 1 Peter 1:3 that we have a New Hope. Hope in Christ is something we never had before we met him. 2 Corinthians 5:17 reminds us we have a New Life in Christ. Every time I read that verse I am reminded of the New Life I have in Christ. My favorite phrase there is “old things have passed away, behold all things have become new.”

We all have New Mercy from God every day to carry us through. Lamentations 3 has been telling us that for a long time. Lastly, we’ll look at the New Love of God that we have because of Christ. A love that lasts forever, a love that defies our natural tendencies, a love that is New!

My hope is that in looking at what the Bible says about what we already have, we can face the New Year in a New Way. We can head into 2020 with a new sense of purpose as a Christian and realize and live what we already have in Christ! My prayer for all of us is that we have a Christ-filled New Year!


In Christ’s Amazing Love,

Pastor Mike Towler
