Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, he is a new creation. The old has passed away; behold, the new has come (2 Corinthians 5:17).

When it comes to the new year, does the above verse come to mind? It does to me, especially now, since 2020 was an interesting year! However, that is now in the past and we look forward to the new year of 2021. The verse above also reminds us that our old self is gone and we have a new self in Jesus. What a great reminder!

Check out one of the LWML Bible studies, We Begin Anew, that you can do yourself or study with friends or family. This Bible study has you looking back and also has you thinking about how to approach this new year.

Happy and blessed new year to you!
