As we face another new year, let us remember that as Christians we are now new creatures, and our old selves are gone.
Let me mention 3 verses that remind us of the new things that we should do.
First, we must do things that gives life. John 10:10 tells us that Jesus came to give us life, and to have it more abundantly. This means that we must affirm actions that gives life, and shun things that destroys life.
Second, we must think and do what is right. Romans 6:18 reminds us that instead of being slaves of sin, we are now slaves of righteousness. Jesus Christ has set us free so that our choices are according to the will of God.
Third, we must live victorious lives because Jesus has defeated Satan. In Matthew 4:1-11 we can see that Jesus has defeated Satan. This means that all temptations of the Devil to us can be defeated because we have Jesus in our lives.
Happy New Year everyone!
