So I was thinking…pondering something today. A certain verse came to my mind this morning and it has been bouncing around all day.
But I don’t really understand it. It boggles my mind. I made scrambled eggs for my kids this morning. It feels like my mind is just like those eggs, all scrambled.
This verse is one that I have known for as long as I can remember. But today, I felt like it was a new verse, one I had never heard before. It seemed to be so full of promise and hope.
All I need is for God to open my eyes (Psalm 119) to the depth and richness of His words. Jesus said that the Holy Spirit will guide me into all truth (John 16).
2 Corinthians 5:17 says, “Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, the new creation has come: The old has gone, the new is here!”
Words so engrained yet they barely register. If I am ‘in’ Christ, I am new. I didn’t feel old. Maybe not old but dead.
Yes, that’s it. Dead. No purpose. No sense or reason to live. Sin had it’s way with me. I was dead but now I alive, new!
All because of Christ. Everything is a result of what He has done. Everything. He is the vine and I am a branch.
I can’t do anything without Him.
I don’t own anything without Him.
I am nothing. Old.
BUT WITH HIM…I can do anything.
I have anything and everything I need. He is my all and everything.
Wow…”The old has gone, the new is here!”
