Hello! Hope you all are having a great Tuesday so far. My day started off with a trip to the vet to drop of little Samson for his [neutering] appointment…poor little guy! I’m sure he will be fine, but it was definitely hard to just leave him at the clinic for the day…very sad. Anyways. I was reading in 2 Corinthians again this morning, and came across this verse…
“Therefore if anyone is in Christ, he is a new creation; the old has gone, the new has come!”
2 Corinthians 5:17
Love this verse—it’s so encouraging! When we are born again in Christ, we receive a fresh start—one that is completely separate from the life we were living before. The Holy Spirit comes in to our lives, transforming us into totally new creations. Not just cleaned up versions of our old selves, but brand new creations! The old is completely, 100% gone.
To me this is such a liberating truth. No matter how badly we’ve messed up in the past, we are always given a clean slate in Christ. No matter what we’ve done, we will always be accepted and loved. Don’t let your past keep yourself from experiencing the true freedom found in Christ. Allow him to come into your life. Allow yourself to become a new creation in him!
