Make All Things New in 2022

Advertisements

2 Corinthians 5:17 
Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, he is a new creation; old things have passed away; behold, all things have become new.

HAPPY NEW YEAR, 2022 is here! It is time to make all things new. Most people would agree that 2021 was much like 2020. Both were very unpleasant years. In 2021, in the United States alone, the year was mostly defined by the Coronavirus pandemic and the Delta and Omicron variants. The United States reported more than 5 million COVID-19 cases. In addition, there were more than 160,000 deaths. This generation has witnessed things in 2021 that no other generation before us has ever seen. It is only by the grace of God that we are still here.

Let’s not enter 2022 with the same old 2021 attitude. Make 2022 the year of new beginnings. Shake off the old and put on the new. Let go of the pain, anxiety, and depression of last year.

The scripture says, “…if anyone is in Christ, he is a new creation.” Through Him, we have received grace (Romans 1:5), through whom also we have access to God by faith into this grace (Romans 5:2). When Christ rose from the dead, He became a new creation. That was the dawning of a new beginning for everyone who believes in Him.

Make all things new in 2022 by renewing your mind. The Bible says you are renewed by transforming your mind (Romans 12:2). Don’t just say it’s a new year and expect your life to turn around. You have to purposely work at making all things new. You can change the way you think by changing the way you talk because your words have the power to transform your life.

Start the New Year with grace. Remember, if anyone is in Christ, he is a new creation; old things have passed away; behold, all things have become new.

HAPPY NEW YEAR!

Recovery from Heroin
Heroin is an opioid drug made from Morphine. It belongs to the category of opium related painkillers. It looks like a white or brown powder, or a sticky black tar.

Heroin is dangerous. Research showed that overdose death rate rose and some of these deaths happen because heroin is laced with other drugs such as this painkiller: “Fentanyl” No matter how you take it, whether by injection, snorting or smoking, heroin gets to your brain quickly and it’s also easy ever addicted. After using heroin just one or two times, it can be hard to stop yourself from using again.

“Can I ever be free from Heroin? I want to be free”
Is this your heart’s cry? Does it really break your heart that you found yourself trapped by Heroin and you just can’t find freedom? I announce to you that you can be free! Sounds quite amazing? Yes, you can be free! Jesus paid the price for your complete dominion over Heroin. He has the power to break the chains of this addiction.
Think about the effects of being addicted to heroin. For how long will you struggle on your own, depending on yourself? Your life is so beautiful and your future is so bright, you must not allow Heroin destroy you. Your destiny is so promising and should not be truncated by Heroin. Your soul is so precious and should not be wasted by addiction to Heroin.
Dear reader, you’ve been fighting on your own to set yourself free, but the more you struggle, the more it threatens your life, future, family, health, present and eternal destiny; it even threatens the reality of living a beautiful life. Think about this!
Now, I know a Deliverer who has the power to liberate you and make you escape the snare of addiction. His name is Jesus! The Bible says, “Surely, he hath borne our griefs, and carried our sorrows: yet we did esteem him stricken, smitten of God, and afflicted. But he was wounded for our transgressions, he was bruised for our iniquities: the chastisement of our peace was upon him; and with his stripes we are healed.” (Isaiah 53:4,5)
He did that just for you!
Do you know that He is the Mediator between you and God. Despite the fact that sin, and this addiction has separated you from the One who loves you, Jesus is the Mediator. God sent Him to pay the price of Mankind’s redemption; and yes, to redeem you from sinful nature of humans and Heroin which seem stronger than you are.
You need to repent and get reconciled with God. He is a holy God; and He loves you. But you can’t access Him based on religion, depraved merits and others. That is why He sent His Sib, Jesus who is The Way. Jesus says: “I am the Way, the Truth and the Life, no man cometh to the Father but by me.” (John 14:6)
So, you need to believe in Jesus and repent of your sins in order to make right with God. Surrender to Jesus and welcome Him into your heart as Your Personal Lord and Saviour. He will liberate you from the chains of sin and Heroin.
