Everyday New You
It’s the New Year and so New Year-New You!. "If anyone is in Christ, the new creation has come: The old has gone, the new is here.” 2 Corinthians 5:17; I’ve read it a million times but that doesn’t mean our flesh isn’t at times screaming for what we found pleasurable in our old life. ONLY through the power of the Holy Spirit (not our own strong wills) can we can truly let the past be the past.
James 4 tells that if we choose to be a friend of the world we take our stand as an enemy of God. Wow. It’s hard, weird and confusing with so many noble projects and movements to become involved in but is all of it for Him? Are we really a “Christ Follower” when we choose to follow what the world has approved but God calls sin? It’s important to listen to each other, connect and find that empathy rather than immediately judge. When we’re made new in Christ we need to march together, listen and love one another each new day…everyday. For more encouragement in Everyday Matters visit DebbieGriffith.com
