New (2 Corinthians 5:17)

Good morning all,

The word of the day is “new.” I was thinking this morning how each week we get to do a little bit of a reset. Yeah, I know there is stuff that lingers from the weeks before. I also know that our troubles do not miraculously go away (although I do believe my God is big enough to do so). The Apostle Paul’s thought here is that even though the old law was not looking so good with the whole Sin of Adam thing, we need not worry ‘cause Christ reversed the human verdict – from death to life!

“Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, she is a new creation; the old has gone, the new has come!”
~2 Cor. 5:17

I guess my question today is: When is the last time you felt a newness with JC? I mean, really sat back and remembered that God has given you new life… I hope you understand that the old is out and the new is in… your life is a representation of Christ – hallelujah! God has some sweet stuff for each of you to experience in this crazy life. My prayer is that you would marvel this week at the saving grace that God has given you through the Son. You are his perfect and new creation.

Praying for you,
