2 Corinthians 5:17 (NIV®)
Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, he is a new creation; the old has gone, the new has come!
When you surrender your life to Christ some people will wonder about the new you. Some will understand. Some won’t. Some will make fun. Some will be jealous. Some will throw rocks. When you follow the Lord you’ll have to be willing to stand out a little because what you live for and hope for will make you different. In fact, your life should cause other people to want to get to know the Lord. Some people will ask you for more information, and some of those will follow Jesus with you!
Heavenly Father, thank You for making such a change in me that people look and wonder about the difference. Give me strength to be a faithful witness for You when others do not understand or mock or even throw rocks. May people always be able to tell that I am a follower of Jesus. In His name I ask these things, amen.
