Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, the new creation has come: The old has gone, the new is here!
– 2 Corinthian 5:17
God is all about transformations. He is an infinitely caring God who restores us when we turn to Him in repentance, He takes the broken, stained areas of our lives away and replaces it with the beauty of Christ. “Forget the former things;
do not dwell on the past. See, I am doing a new thing! Now it springs up; do you not perceive it? I am making a way in the wilderness and streams in the wasteland.” Isaiah 43:18-19
We are living proof of God’s grace ... of His willingness to forgive and restore tattered hearts. He gave His life so that you and I could live beyond our pasts – beyond our disappointments – beyond our biggest mistakes and our deepest pains. He bore a cross so we could be forgiven and made new. So, we could have abundant life. Full life. Not a held back-by-the-stains-and-shames-of-your-past life.
I don’t know where this finds you right now, but God does. He knows and sees everything – and He loves you. We all have brokenness that needs fixing and stains that need to be cleaned. The good news of the Gospel is simple: when we call out to God and seek His heart and forgiveness through Jesus Christ, He does a new thing! He meets us with mercy, forgives completely, and blesses us with grace that we don’t deserve.
Are you ready for the Lord to do a new thing in your life today?
