Wake up to the new life // 04-12-17
- “Therefore if anyone is in Christ [that is, grafted in, joined to Him by faith in Him as Saviour], he is a new creature [reborn and renewed by the Holy Spirit]; the old things [the previous moral and spiritual condition] have passed away. Behold, new things have come [because spiritual awakening brings a new life].” 2 Corinthians 5:17 AMP
There really is such a thing as new life! My past does not have to define me because when I truly encounter the love of God and enter His life it wakes me up to spiritual reality! How can life go on as usual when everything has changed? Connected to Jesus I am not the same person anymore, but in order to fully experience and live out this amazing new life I need to let go of the old. It’s crazy when I am forgiven and set free to still hold on to old ways of thinking and responding and behaving. But what a trade off, what an exchange, when I give Jesus my wrong and He gives me His right!
