Happy New Year!

All Things New
Dr. Kenneth C. Hill

Bible Reading:  2 Corinthians 5:14 - 21
Bible Text:   Therefore if any man be in Christ, he is a new creature: old things are passed away; behold, all things are become new.”   2 Corinthians 5:17
What a wonderful truth we discover in this passage of God’s Word! 
No longer must we be bound with the fetters of sins committed in the distant past.  No more will we be shackled by the terrors of the memory of past deeds.  It is impossible to be burdened by the past if we are followers of Christ Jesus.
The words are plain and simple.  If you are in Christ then you are a new creature.  You, as a follower of Christ, have become something totally different.  You are a new creation.  You have been changed from a sinner to a saint, from a vagabond seeking shelter from the difficulties of life to a child of God who is a home with the Heavenly Father and under His protection.
Further, all of the old things are gone, completely gone.  And we have all things that are new.  These new things in our life are without the stain of sin. 
When we place our faith in Christ Jesus and follow Him, we are freed from the past and are become new creatures of God’s grace. 
Christ makes saints of sinners.
