2nd Corinthians 5:17 says, “If anyone is in Christ, he is a new creation; old things have passed away, behold, all things have become new.”
I see this picture of an old GM plant and I think of this scripture….old things will pass away, and (in Christ) all things will be new. Part of the difficult part of seeing things (buildings, houses, businesses, etc.) deteriorate, is that many times there’s no hope for a “resurrection.” What has been, will never again be! But as we live in Christ, we are new creatures. Made new by and through His loving sacrifice for us. As we look at our lives and see areas of “deterioration,” we need to remember to allow Christ to “make them new again.” His work in us is enough…we no longer need to be satisfied with our old selves…we can be new in Him! It’s a matter of choice…which decision will you make?
