Therefore, if anyone is in Christ,he is a new creation;
old things have passed away; behold, all things have become new.

A New Creature

I remember all those years ago, before I was a “new creation,” – old things held me back.  I pulled and pushed, struggled and strained, trying to live free of old things.  I would sometimes break away, just to have some other earthly thing disappoint or hurt, and down I would go once more.  It was just fruitless.

Now I have a relationship with someone who can keep me from falling, who, through His goodness and love for me, keeps me on an even plain, pushes back old things and shows me new things.  He has made me a new creation.  I will love Him forever.

Prayer Starter

Lord –
Your mercies are new every morning.
Let me walk as Your new creation every day.
