Jesus Gives Us A Fresh Start

Because Jesus was raised from the dead, we’ve been given a brand-new life, and have everything to live for, including a future in heaven (1 Peter 1:3–4 MSG).

"Jesus is in the business of giving people a fresh start."

As we enter Easter week, I want to make sure you thoroughly understand that Jesus is in the business of giving people a fresh start. It doesn’t matter what you’ve done; it doesn’t matter where you’ve been; it doesn’t matter how bad you think you’ve blown it: Jesus will give you a fresh start.

The apostle Peter says several things happen once you give your life to Jesus:

  • You open up your life to God and get to know him.
  • You’re given a brand new life, which gives you everything to live for.
  • You get a future in heaven. 

You can say it this way: You get your past forgiven, you get a purpose for livin’, and you get a home in heaven. What a deal! You’re past, present, and future are taken care of as you put your trust in Jesus. A fresh start!

Everything that we have—right thinking and right living, a clean slate and a fresh start—comes from God by way of Jesus Christ” (1 Corinthians 1:30 MSG).
