“You were taught not to live the way you used to. You must get rid of your old way of life. That’s because it has been made impure by the desire for things that lead you astray. 23 You were taught to be made new in your thinking. 24 You were taught to start living a new life. It is created to be truly good and holy, just as God is.”
Ephesians 4:22-23 NIRV
“When anyone lives in Christ, the new creation has come. The old is gone! The new is here!”
2 Corinthians 5:17 NIRV
Every day brings new possibilities…don’t let the worlds values and the pursuits of ungodly things keep you distracted and lost. Trust the promises of God…we will not find hope and fulfillment in other people because we are all broken and in need of Jesus. The world is telling us we should value me first and live a self-centered life…not true. A Christ centered life…meeting with Him every day and trusting His Way is the New Way to live…each day. May the peace of God be with you and flow through you. Amen.
“Finally, my brothers and sisters, always think about what is true. Think about what is noble, right and pure. Think about what is lovely and worthy of respect. If anything is excellent or worthy of praise, think about those kinds of things. 9 Do what you have learned or received or heard from me. Follow my example. The God who gives peace will be with you.”
Philippians 4:8-9 NIRV
