Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, he is a new creation; the old has gone, the new has come! 2 Corinthians 5:17
Those who are Believers in Jesus Christ know about this passage. It’s the caterpillar to butterfly, Winter to Spring, dead-come-to-life passage. As a new Believer you see things, well, differently. It’s difficult to explain unless you’ve been to that point. Those who have tasted that “new creation” never turn back. In fact, the change is so overpowering and overwhelming that there are those who would die for their faith than to go back.
It’s hard to know who reads this from day to day but if you have no idea what I wrote in that last paragraph because it seems utter nonsense to you, then now’s a good time to examine your life. Resolutions. New beginnings and all.
What’s your purpose in life? What’s your passion? At the end of 80 years, what do you want others to say about your life? What is your hope at the end of that life? But you say, “that’s 50 or 60 years from now.” Is it?
A distant relative of mine was murdered five days ago. She was 23 years young. I don’t say that to scare you but to say that you really don’t know when you’ll pass. High ranking politicians like to say that they are x number of heartbeats from the presidency. They understand the brevity of life.
If you are mixed up and confused about all this end of life stuff, drop me a line. For thousands of years God has been transforming lives. He’s not finished yet.
