Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, the new creation has come: The old has gone, the new is here! 2 Corinthians 5:17 NIV
It is through Christ that we begin a new life. We are born again (John 3:7). Our desires change. Even our thoughts change. The old me has gone away, and I have a new focus on life. I am recreated into God’s character. Sometimes, it is overnight, for others it is a lifetime process. We start as a babe in Christ and grow to spiritual maturity into the full stature of Christ.
but grow in the grace and knowledge of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. To Him be the glory both now and forever. Amen. 2 Peter 3:18 NKJV
