The Old is Gone
Posted: April 10, 2017
Do you struggle with fear, worry or anxiety thinking about the pressures of tomorrow?
Do you wish you could live each day without constantly being bombarded by overwhelming stress, thoughts of past failures, guilt or shame?
Do you wish you could turn over a new leaf, start fresh or move on from the past?
Do you ever wish your mistakes could be completely erased, forgotten or redeemed?
Do you ever think to yourself, “If only I had a second chance, I’d do things right next time!”?
I have good news for you. When you come to Christ, confess your sins and declare him as Lord and Savior of your life, all this can happen! The Bible tells us that once we belong to Christ, our old life is gone and is replaced with a new life! Because of the saving work of Jesus on the cross, we are made new in Him. Thank God!
“This means that anyone who belongs to Christ has become a new person. The old life is gone; a new life has begun!”
- 2 Corinthians 5:17
Lord, thank you that I don’t have to be held down or chained by my past now that I am a new creation in Christ. Thank you for giving me a new life, full of hope and joy. I pray that those around me, my neighbors, would receive new life this Easter. In Jesus’ name, amen.
