A new beginning

Tired of past failures? Hoping that 2019 will be better than 2018? Perhaps you need a new beginning. A man called Zacchaeus experienced a new beginning when he met Jesus Christ. The encounter with Jesus challenged him to turn from what he had been – selfish, greedy and exploitative of other people – to what he could become as a follower of Jesus. A new beginning for each of us comes through a fresh encounter with Jesus Christ. You might like to kick-start the process by finding a quiet place, reading the story of Zacchaeus and prayerfully reflecting on its significance. You’ll find his story in chapter 19 of the New Testament book of Luke.
