Welcome to Faith for Daily Living
The Word in Your World
“Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, the new creation has come: The old has gone, the new is here!” 2 Corinthians 5:17 NIV
The old is gone and the new has come, because of the sacrifice Jesus made on the Cross. We can trust that our old self was crucified and that we now have a new identity in Christ. That is something worth celebrating! We can have confidence that by God’s grace He is growing us and sanctifying us. Colossians 3:10 (NIV) says that those who are in Christ “have put on the new self, which is being renewed in knowledge in the image of its Creator.” We are being renewed daily by God because of His great sacrifice. Christ delivers us from old to new through His sacrifice on the Cross, His resurrection, ascension, and the outpouring of the Holy Spirit at Pentecost. God’s grace alone can take what’s old and make it new. By His sacrifice, Jesus takes our spiritual brokenness and introduces a new measurement that says our hope isn’t in our ability to improve; rather, newness comes from His redeeming love. Praise the Lord that new things can come through Jesus Christ alone and because of what He has accomplished for us in the completed work of the Cross. As Isaiah 43:18-19 reminds us, “Forget the former things; do not dwell on the past. See, I am doing a new thing! Now it springs up; do you not perceive it? I am making a way in the wilderness and streams in the wasteland.” (NIV). May we fix our eyes on Christ and how He has made us new!
Lord Jesus, we choose to fix our eyes on You and what You have done.
