New Year, New Life

How can we have new life now?
BIBLE READING: Matthew 1:18-25
KEY BIBLE VERSE: And she will have a Son, and you shall name him Jesus (meaning ‘Savior’) for he will save his people from their sins. (Matthew 1:21, tlb)
>>The hope of new life begins with Jesus. Jesus means “the Lord saves.” Jesus came to earth to save us because we can’t save ourselves from sin and its consequences. No matter how good we are, we can’t eliminate the sinful nature present in all of us. Only Jesus can do that. Jesus didn’t come to help people save themselves; he came to be their Savior from the power and penalty of sin. Thank Christ for his death on the cross for your sin, and then ask him to take control of your life. Your new life begins at that moment.
