Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, he is a new creation; old things have passed away; behold, all things have become new. II Corinthians 5:17
It’s a new year. We all want to feel shiny and new, embrace new things, get rid of the old. Thankfully Jesus paved the way for us to do just that.
This scripture is one of my all time favorites, and one of my two ‘life’ verses. When I became a Christian, I desperately wanted to be new. The concept of a butterfly breaking free of it’s dirty old chrysalis spoke so wonderfully to me, and still does.
