“New Creature” by Kirk Hunt
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 KJV
Welcome to a new year. Last year had its challenges, losses and wins, but it is past now. Ready or not, you are in this new year.
The year is not the only thing that is new. If you are a follower of Christ Jesus, you are new also. You are being transformed in His image.
The old you had advantages, but the new you is better. The new you looks more like Him. This year’s you acts more like Christ.
Each round of Bible study gives you greater understanding. Each day of fasting gives you greater strength in Him. Each prayer takes you closer to His mind.
The new you has a new year, full of new opportunities to build His Kingdom. All it takes is the courage and obedience to exercise yourself. You can do it, since His power is working in you.
The previous versions of you were good but today you are better. He has called you to build His Kingdom, using your new abilities, skills and insight. Follow your calling, knowing that you are better than ever.
Think: Do my actions reflect that fact that I am a new creation?
Pray: “Lord, help me to follow my calling and mission in new ways.”
