"Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, he is a new creation; the old has gone, the new has come!"
(2 CORINTHIANS 5:17)
For years I viewed myself through the lens of the failures and mistakes of old relationships. I let those regrets define me for a long time when what ought to have defined me was the love Christ has for me. “I have loved you with an everlasting love; I have drawn you with unfailing kindness” (Jeremiah 31:3), the Lord tells me.
If you are following Jesus, He says the very same to you. With our identities bound up in being adopted children of the King of heaven, we get to live free of the guilt or condemnation of the past. We can leave it all behind, looking ahead to a new world in Christ. With Him we not only live free of the past, but we can live life
2 Corinthians 5:17-19
THINK ABOUT WHAT IT MEANS TO IDENTIFY YOURSELF WITH THE THINGS JESUS SAYS OF YOU, NOT WHAT OTHERS SAY OF YOU.
