Text: 2 Corinthians 5 (1 Kings 13-14)
Here is a word worth memorizing:
Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, he is a new creation. The old has passed away; behold, the new has come. (2 Corinthians 5:17)
When we come to a relationship with Jesus, surrendering self and sin to Him, we receive the gift of new and everlasting life. That new life begins the moment we believe. Our old self and our captivity to sin are left behind, replaced with a brand new creation. Everything is made new! We have a new heart, a new direction for life, a new boss (Jesus), and a new future (heaven). We have meaning and purpose that was not there before. We have become immortal, eternal beings, citizens of the Kingdom of God. Amazing. How about you? Are you all new? If you have come to Jesus you are. If you are new in Christ, what are the relics of the old life you need to discard? May we all live our new life fully.
