Thoughts of Devotion:
The Bible assures us that if anyone is in Christ, He is a new creation! The old things have passed and now there is a new beginning. The past life is behind us, and now we are his workmanship, as Ephesians 2:10 declares to us, “For we are His workmanship, created in Christ Jesus for good works, which God prepared beforehand that we should walk in them.” God gives us a new opportunity, a new way, He makes us into a whole new person. Through Christ we have left the past and now walk in new life.
It is for this reason that we must let go of the past, and we cannot live in the same way we lived before coming to Christ. Now a radical change has happened, we are new creatures from within. The Holy Spirit now dwells in us and we will no longer will be the same. In Ezekiel 11:19 it tells us, “Then I will give them one heart, and I will put a new spirit within them, and take the stony heart out of their flesh, and give them a heart of flesh.” Thank God we no longer have a heart of stone, now God has given us a new heart to love him and worship him.
Now everything is made absolutely new, this is the miracle of salvation! Our whole world has been transformed into a newness of life. In Colossians 3:10 it says, “and have put on the new man who is renewed in knowledge according to the image of Him who created him.” Today is the day to walk in the new that God has promised us, living a life to the fullest without looking back! We can no longer stay in the past things, we have to close the past and get into all the new things that God has for us.
Isaiah 43:18-19 (NKJV) — 18 “Do not remember the former things, Nor consider the things of old. 19 Behold, I will do a new thing, Now it shall spring forth; Shall you not know it? I will even make a road in the wilderness And rivers in the desert.
Revelation 21:5 (NKJV) — 5 Then He who sat on the throne said, “Behold, I make all things new.” And He said to me, “Write, for these words are true and faithful.”
2 Corinthians 5:19 (NKJV) — 19 that is, that God was in Christ reconciling the world to Himself, not imputing their trespasses to them, and has committed to us the word of reconciliation.
John 14:20 (NKJV) — 20 At that day you will know that I am in My Father, and you in Me, and I in you.
Ephesians 1:4 (NKJV) — 4 just as He chose us in Him before the foundation of the world, that we should be holy and without blame before Him in love,
Psalm 51:10 (NKJV) — 10 Create in me a clean heart, O God, And renew a steadfast spirit within me.
Ezekiel 11:19 (NKJV) — 19 Then I will give them one heart, and I will put a new spirit within them, and take the stony heart out of their flesh, and give them a heart of flesh,
