Cara here to bring you "In The Word" Wednesday. With a brand new year ahead of us, I wanted to share some verses that I thought were applicable...
Bible Verses for the New Year
1 Peter 1:3 NIV
Praise be to the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ! In his great mercy he has given us new birth into a living hope through the resurrection of Jesus Christ from the dead.
Hope for the Future
Jeremiah 29:11 NLT
"For I know the plans I have for you," says the LORD. "They are plans for good and not for disaster, to give you a future and a hope.
A New Creation
2 Corinthians 5:17 NKJV
Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, he is a new creation; old things have passed away; behold, all things have become new.
A New Heart
Ezekiel 36:25-27 NLT
"Then I will sprinkle clean water on you, and you will be clean. Your filth will be washed away, and you will no longer worship idols. And I will give you a new heart with new and right desires, and I will put a new spirit in you. I will take out your stony heart of sin and give you a new, obedient heart. And I will put my Spirit in you so you will obey my laws and do whatever I command.
Forgetting the Past
Philippians 3:13-14 NLT
No, dear brothers and sisters, I am still not all I should be, but I am focusing all my energies on this one thing: Forgetting the past and looking forward to what lies ahead, I strain to reach the end of the race and receive the prize for which God, through Christ Jesus, is calling us up to heaven.
