YOU ARE A NEW PERSON
April 06, 2021
Prayer: Lord, As educators, we need to submit our plans, our priorities, and our wills to You. Help us to do that daily. Change us into new people. Amen.
Scripture: Those who become Christians become new persons.They are not the same anymore, for the old life is gone. A new life has begun! 2 Corinthians 5:17 NLT
Check yourself. Are the old ways still plaguing you? Are the old priorities that center on yourself still stronger than the desire to do what you have learned pleases God? God’s word promises us that when the Holy Spirit comes into us things are changed forever. We are not the old person but new creations, new persons being remade over again into Christ’s image. It is a certainty that this happens when WE permit it to happen. God never forces it upon us. Have you asked the Lord to change you? Have you released authority over your self-will into His hands for His purposes?
Yes? Then praise the Lord for how you are different than you used to be. Expect to share your new love with others around you who need to know it.
No? Why not? Is there anything good about the way things used to be? Why not embrace the cross today?
