Daily Reading – Proverbs 9-10 / 2 Corinthians 5
WHAT GOD HAS SAID:
2 Corinthians 5:17 Therefore if any man be in Christ, he is a new creature: old things are passed away; behold, all things are become new.
WHAT I HAVE SEEN:
This is one of those verses, which had a big impact on my life. I’d been brought up to believe once I was saved I was always saved. I still believe that, with one clause. YOU MUST KNOW YOU’RE REALLY SAVED!
As a young boy, I said a prayer along with others my age, was told I was saved, and was baptized. Then for the next 20 years I lived like the world. When I walked the Isle in my late 20’s, I thought I rededicated my life to the Lord. That was until this verse began to plague me. I couldn’t get the question out of my mind. When did things in my life become new ? I realized it was in my 20’s when I went forward. Old things, like language, desires, and habits had less of an appeal to me.
WHAT DO YOU SAY:
When did things become new for you?
