A New Hope

[142 words]

The word “now” comes from a Latin phrase, novus homo, which means “a new man” or “man newly ennobled.”

There is a powerful lesson in that. Each moment is a change we have to start over. To become a new person, to become a better person.

“Now” is an important concept in the Bible. Now is the day of salvation (2 Corinthians 6:2) Now is the time to encourage (Hebrews 3:13). Now is the time to do what is right (James 4:15-17). Now is the time to repent (Acts 17:30).

A new you starts will an action but it must be done now! Tomorrow isn’t here. Yesterday is already gone. Now is the time. There is no time like the present because we exist nowhere other than now.

Do you want a new start? Do it now!
