Bible Verses About the New Year- Putting Jesus First
I’ll be the first to say that in my little corner of the world, life is all about me.
Oh the horrid curse of human nature and our desire to be in the spotlight!
I’m reminded of John the Baptist. His ministry on earth was to be a forerunner and prepare the way of the Lord that pointed solely to Jesus. Every word that he preached pointed to the Messiah, Jesus.
What if we, like John the Baptist, proclaimed, “ He must increase, but I must decrease.”
Nowhere in the Bible will you find Bible verses about the New Year.
But you will find Scriptures that focus on new beginnings, renewal and refreshment.

***Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ! According to his great mercy, he has caused us to be born again to a living hope through the resurrection of Jesus Christ from the dead, – 1 Peter 1:3
God wants us to rely on Him and it’s His desire that we become less and less so He can fill us more.
But there is a danger when we rely upon ourselves and what we do instead of relying on the One who created us to do good works
He wants to fill our lives with HIM and that can only come by simply yielding to Him.No more struggling.
Your works don’t prove your worth.
