The God of Fresh Starts

Devotion Text

Revelation 21:5

He who was seated on the throne said, “I am making everything new!” Then he said, “Write this down, for these words are trustworthy and true.”

God is a God of fresh starts.

  • In the beginning, He spoke a new world into existence.
  • He gave Adam and Eve everything they needed and could ever want.
  • After their sin, He personally provided skins from animals giving them a fresh start.
  • The sacrificial system would provide for a fresh start: the cleansing and forgiveness for the Old Testament worshiper year after year.
  • At the right time, the one-time-for-all-time Perfect Sacrifice made a fresh start possible for all by His death, burial, and resurrection.
  • In Christ, we have a new life by His initial forgiveness and the fresh start of ongoing forgiveness as we confess our sins to Him.
  • By His resurrection, Jesus gives us a fresh start as we pass from death to life.
  • And one day, He will make “everything new!”

This year is winding down. But with Jesus, every day is a day of fresh starts. Whatever this past year has held, remember, our hope is in God…the God of fresh starts.

Father, thank You for being a God who allows us clean, fresh starts. Thank You for the newness You provide in this life and for eternity! In Jesus’ name. Amen.
