All Things Become New

For many of us we saved by the blood of Christ and we are grateful for our salvation.  We have experienced a new life in Christ like never before, and since that very day we gave our lives to Christ we can testify that we have never been the same.  Although we are saved and have professed Christ as our Savior if we are not careful we can become caught up in the motions of being saved, and not live out the newness of our salvation daily.  If we are not careful we can slip back to old habits and old ways and forget that we are new creations in Christ.  

The Scripture reminds us that, if any person is in Christ, they are a new creature: old things are passed away; behold, all things are become new.  I encourage you today to remember you are a new creature in Christ and old things are passing away and other things are becoming new.  No matter how long you have been saved, God is doing new things in your life on a daily basis.  No matter how long you have been on the road of salvation there are some old things that need to pass away, so you can begin to make room for the new things that God will do in your life.  As you take inventory in your life, allow old things to pass away, and make way for the new things that you will have in Christ.  

You are a new creature, not just when you gave your life to Christ, but you are a new creature now, and God is doing new things in your life, and He wants to continue to do great things for you.  I am so grateful that God changed my life years ago, and I am also grateful that He continues to change my life.  As I allow the old things to pass away, I am being prepared to receive all of the new things God is going to do in my life.  

Since I know I am a new creature in Christ, and all things are becoming new in my life today I have no doubt, “It’s My Year To Get My Thing From My God!”

Prayer

Lord thank you for saving me and thank you for all of the new things that you are doing in my life.  Old things are passing away and all things are becoming new for me in Christ.  In Jesus Name Amen.
