Made New

Description

In Christ we are totally different. We are new.

2 Corinthians 5:14-21   For Christ’s love compels us, because we are convinced that one died for all, and therefore all died. And he died for all, that those who live should no longer live for themselves but for him who died for them and was raised again. So from now on we regard no one from a worldly point of view. Though we once regarded Christ in this way, we do so no longer. Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, the new creation has come: The old has gone, the new is here! All this is from God, who reconciled us to himself through Christ and gave us the ministry of reconciliation: that God was reconciling the world to himself in Christ, not counting people’s sins against them. And he has committed to us the message of reconciliation. We are therefore Christ’s ambassadors, as though God were making his appeal through us. We implore you on Christ’s behalf: Be reconciled to God. God made him who had no sin to be sin for us, so that in him we might become the righteousness of God.            

I’ve never seen myself as I’ve wanted to be. I’ve always wanted to be 10 pounds lighter or 10 pounds heavier; 4 inches taller or 4 inches slimmer; able to grow body hair or wishing my body had less hair; there is always something I want to be different.

In Christ we are different; we are totally different; we are new. Not just a little lighter or heavier, taller or shorter, hairier or not; we are new.
