Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, the new creation has come: The old has gone, the new is here! All this is from God, who reconciled us to himself through Christ and gave us the ministry of reconciliation:
2 Corinthians 5:17
Have you ever re-painted a room in your house? This past weekend, I started a new project of re-painting my master bedroom. I am slowly curbing away the old style and bringing in the new style. The process of updating the old with the new is enjoyable for me.
Our life of faith is very similar to a new makeover in our house. Think about the last time you did a makeover in your house, big or small. Did you stand back from your efforts proud of your new fresh look? How did it make you feel to restore something old and outdated? As Christ begins to take more precedence in our hearts, the ugly and outdated parts of us begin to re-shape and restore into something new. For example, you may stop to listen and understand before lashing out into selfish anger. Your new remodel is probably more attractive by the loved ones around you.
How has your life been transformed from the old to the new because of being reconciled back to God?
