By Robin Basselin

December 21, 2018

Over the past few days, you’ve likely heard endless renditions of “Auld Lang Syne,” seen numerous advertisements for “once-in-a-year” gym membership deals, and talked with friends and families about your resolutions for a new year. And now, it’s here. New Year’s Eve has arrived.

Maybe you’re hosting a party this year, attending a New Year’s Eve service at church, or taking in a quiet night at home by yourself, or with family. Whatever the case, we want to help you end this year and bring in the new with your focus on what’s most important: your relationship with God.

Below you’ll find 7 New Year’s Eve focused devotions to help you ring in the new year right. Read one or more of these short reflections on your own as personal devotions, or share them aloud with family and friends.
