A new creation….
I remember the night one of our boys brought home a young girl he fancied. In conversation she reminisced of a time from her not so distant youth that raised our eyebrows. With a mama-bear-protecting-her-cub mentality, I instinctively wanted to have reservations about their involvement. But as quickly as the judgment popped from my brain I heard a whisper in my heart saying, she is a my new creation.
Awe, and she was indeed a new creation. A new creation in Christ. A new believer. Fresh to the fold, God was doing new and beautiful things in this lovely girl’s heart.
As we regularly bring our hearts into submission to His, God continues to renew us, stripping away our old life and filling us with a new, fresh, brilliant perspective. As a matter of fact, Scripture tells us in Philippians 1:6, that God, who began this good work in us will continue it until the day Jesus returns.
What a sweet promise.
Have a good week!
