New Year Sermon Topic With Bible Verses: Dear friends, as we stand on the threshold of a new year, there’s a sense of anticipation in the air—a feeling that we’re granted the opportunity for a fresh start. Today, let’s explore the theme of renewal and fresh beginnings through the lens of God’s Word.
A Fresh Start: Embracing God’s Renewal in the New Year”
Section 1: “God’s Promises of Renewal” Let’s turn to Isaiah 43:18-19: “Forget the former things; do not dwell on the past. See, I am doing a new thing! Now it springs up; do you not perceive it?” This verse reminds us that God is in the business of making things new. As we enter the new year, let’s release the weight of the past and open our hearts to God’s promises of renewal.
Section 2: “Repentance and Forgiveness” Psalm 51:10 encourages us to pray, “Create in me a pure heart, O God, and renew a steadfast spirit within me.” The path to renewal often begins with repentance and seeking God’s forgiveness. Let’s take a moment to reflect on areas of our lives that need God’s renewal and approach Him with sincerity and humility.
Section 3: “Transformed Minds and Attitudes” Romans 12:2 reminds us, “Do not conform to the pattern of this world but be transformed by the renewing of your mind.” As we step into the new year, let’s ask God for transformed minds and attitudes. May we be renewed in our thinking, aligning our thoughts with His truth and grace.
Section 4: “New Mercies Every Morning” Lamentations 3:22-23 assures us, “Because of the Lord’s great love, we are not consumed, for his compassions never fail. They are new every morning; great is your faithfulness.” God’s mercies are fresh and new every day. Let’s approach each day of the new year with gratitude for the opportunity to experience His unending compassion.
Conclusion: As we embark on this new year, may we carry the assurance of God’s promises of renewal. Let’s leave behind the old, embrace repentance and forgiveness, transform our minds, and wake up each morning with the anticipation of God’s new mercies.
May the spirit of renewal permeate every aspect of our lives, drawing us closer to God and empowering us to live in the fullness of His grace. With hearts full of hope and faith, let’s step into the new year, trusting that God is indeed doing a new thing.
