If anyone is in Christ, he is a new creation; the old has gone, the new has come! All this is from God, who reconciled us to himself through Christ and gave us the ministry of reconciliation: that God was reconciling the world to himself in Christ, not counting men’s sins against them.
New covenant, new creation, new day! I like to think that every morning when I wake up, I am a brand new person in Christ. Because of Christ, God has reconciled the world to Him and does not count our sins against us. We do not have to be dragged down by past mistakes. Even more than this, He has given us the ministry of reconciliation. We can let go of our stubborn pride and freely forgive others as we are forgiven. Every day is a new chance to truly live in the Kingdom!
Gracious God, thank you for making us a new creation through your son Jesus Christ! What a blessing it is to be made new! Amen
