Baptismal Renewal: Off with the Old, On with the New!

A Word from the Lord

You were taught, with regard to your former way of life, to put off your old self, which is being corrupted by its deceitful desires; to be made new in the attitude of your minds; and to put on the new self, created to be like God in true righteousness and holiness. Ephesians 4:22-24

A Word of Encouragement

In a year of upheaval, we naturally fall into bad habits of the old nature. Baptismal renewal is a new beginning. Seek forgiveness; welcome God’s grace; put on the new self for 2021.

We’re Praying for You

“Lord Jesus, You died and rose that I might also die to sin and rise to new life. Grant me a new beginning in Your mercy for a new year. Amen.”

Renewal Moment

Take a deep breath. Exhale slowly. “Lord, have mercy.” Thanksgiving for new beginnings.
