A New Life
“Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, he is a new creation; the old has gone, the new has come!”
2nd Corinthians 5:17
There is something exciting about getting something “new”. I can recall our children’s faces when they got a new toy, or when they got new clothes, or got their first new bicycle. There is something inspiring about getting a “new” anything. Most people even try to change their appearances by new hairstyles, makeovers, whiter teeth, to plastic surgery in hopes of creating a new look. The problem with these superficial changes is that it is only skin deep, and only covers what is on the outside. In the scripture above Jesus promises us that our entire being can become new, not just the outside surface, but also our inner being, when we ask Him into our hearts. Our happiness and joy begins with what is inside us, in our hearts, not on the outside. Just think what a new beginning could mean to you today. I am confident most of you have made mistakes during your life. You have committed sins you are ashamed of, you have done things that you regretted doing, you have hurt others, and done things that you wish you could erase and eliminate in your past. When you accept Jesus, all of these are forgiven, as anyone who comes to Jesus is given a brand new start. “All things have become new.” What an amazing promise God has given us. We not only get a new start, but we become a new creation. “I, even I, am he who blots out your transgressions, for my own sake, and remembers your sins no more.” Isaiah 43:25 Once we accept Jesus as our Savior He wipes all our sins away and we are given a new start with a new life.
