Bible Verses for the 2021 New Year

Scripture is loaded with amazing guidance about how to transform your life with a fresh start. In particular, the New Testament has a wealth of Bible verses about a new beginning, through Jesus’ suffering on the cross that redeemed humanity from sin — and unlocked the door for our salvation and reconciliation with God.

Ephesians 4:22-24 informs us that receiving Christ enables us to throw away our “former way of life” and to leave behind our “old self.” This includes the negative attitudes and “deceitful desires” that sometimes creep into the human conscience. Believing in Jesus and starting on a quest to live like Him helps to edify each individual into a better person.
