2 Grace and peace to you from God the Father and the Lord Jesus Christ. 2 Thessalonians 2 (NIV)
I had this scripture in mind for today’s blog and thought my writing would be short and simple but then I did some research on it and realized yes this is the blog God wants me to write but it will not be short and simple.
17 Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, he is a new creation; old things have passed away; behold, all things have become new. 2 Corinthians 5:17 (NKJV)
My interpretation of the above scripture is simple. Once we the Christian have accepted Jesus Christ as our Lord and Savior and accept that Christ Jesus died for our sins and repent our sins we are made new our life is made new our heart is made new we are new because of our faith in God and His son Jesus Christ our Lord and Savior and the Holy Spirit.
We are “in Christ” through our faith and baptism and that we have accepted His sacrifice as payment for our sins. Many would say that we are “reborn” in this process as well and as a result we the Christians are made new casting out our “old way of life” and our past sins as in “old things passed away”. Most Christians really don’t want to sin anymore once they have found Jesus Christ our Lord and Savior and many more are just a “work in progress”. We Christians want to do the things that God asks us to do. Things like don’t sin anymore…love each other…be compassionate…help the poor and the needy…pray…unceasingly. So then “all things have become new” not only with our lives but within ourselves as well.
