New Things

Who doesn’t enjoy new. New shoes, a new dress, a new toy or fresh bread right out of the oven are examples of new things which bring a smile to our face. Spiritually speaking there is a newness that not only makes us smile but gives us a deep satisfaction and joy. It is the newness which comes when we give our lives to our heavenly Father God and ask Jesus to come and live in us.
The truth is Paul says it like this, “If anyone is in Christ, he is a new creation.” (2 Cor. 5:17) He then describes the new creation: the old things are gone (forgiven) and all things are becoming new.
What things are gone: guilt, shame, anger, low self-esteem, loneliness. What things are becoming new? He says all things. Every area of your life is being made over and we often see it and more often we don’t. But still the Bible says that God never stops working on us. It could be anything: a new attitude, peace, happiness, no more guilt, a new confidence, less anger, more forgiveness, less worry, no worry or a new pair of shoes. He knows what you need. (Matthew 6:8)
