A new year means a fresh start with the Lord. 

So, here are 54 sermons appropriate for the beginning of a new year. Some of them speak to faith, some to making a new beginning, some to the need for trust in God’s promises, some to contentment, and some to overcoming fear.

Please feel free to use this material in any way that might be useful as you prepare sermons and Bible studies and as you begin a new year.

Eleven of these messages are also available in podcast as well. May these inspire you and those you shepherd into a new year of hope!
