“Every new beginning comes from some other beginning’s end.” – Seneca
” The One who was sitting on the throne said, ‘Look! I am making everything new!” Then he said, “Write this, because these words are true and can be trusted.'”
To the Romans, the first month of a new year was named after the Roman god Janus. The significance of Janus to the Romans was the fact that he had two faces. One of his faces was looking forward, and the other was looking back. The month of January was then taken to be a time of re-evaluation. It became a valuable time to ponder the past, and anticipate the future.
In this new year, what are the things that we need to re-evaluate in our lives? As Christians, the new year is the perfect time for us to do our own version of spring cleaning in our lives and once again re-dedicate ourselves to God.
