New Creation

II Corinthians 5:17 “Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, he is a new creation. The old has passed away; behold, the new has come.”

This has shown up 5 times since Thursday, in random places from our school’s newsletter, to a friend’s blog (thanks, Fran!), to 2 different daily Bible readings this week, and I can’t even remember the 5th place!

It always seems like when I start to see something over and over, it’s something I’m supposed to pay attention to, but I’m not sure why right now. It could be I simply need this reminder that I should be living as the new creation I am, not in my flesh or in my sinful ways.

Or maybe it’s a verse that I’m supposed to share with someone. I’ll pray and ponder some more over this and update if I learn anything new about this!

It is a good way to praise Him today: Through Christ, I have become a new creation; the old is gone, the new has come. Praise You, Lord, that Christ, who knew no sin, became sin on our behalf that we might become the righteousness of God! What a glorious, merciful, and undeserved exchange! Thank you, Jesus.
