A lot of us make New Year’s resolutions just to quit them after just a few days or weeks. We want to change or lifestyle, or take away a wrong habit, but it just seems so difficult. In the Bible, the only people who can achieve a new beginning is a born again Christian.

Being born again means trusting Christ as your only Lord and Savior, by faith. Once this takes place in the life of a man, the Apostle Paul said that that man would become a new creature. Old things have passed, and everything has become new.

So what is the principle behind all this? It’s that a new life or beginning can only genuinely happen for a believer of Christ. Apart from Him, we can do nothing to change ourselves. We would only fail.
