2 Corinthians 5:17-“Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, the new creation has come: The old has gone and the new is here!”
This verse out rightly says that before we accept Christ we are totally different. In most cases many things in our life don’t seem to work out. There is so much of hard work done and many times it feels so unrewarding because the fruits of the labor do not match up with the work done. Due to this it leads to a feeling of despair because as human beings we easily wear out hence we need constant reminder. Although our fellow mates may offer this to us once in a while, they are unable to do it over and over again. It is at this point in our lives that we realize that we need to reconnect with our Maker because He alone knows the reason why He created you and me.
It is only Christ who has the ability to lead us to our great destiny’s that await us. This is the reason why once we accept Him, we are made new. There is new hope for a bright future; suddenly we are so enthusiastic more like the feeling of superman whereby nothing can come between what we want to achieve and ourselves. The joy of the Lord becomes our strength and we have the courage to dream on and chase after the things that God has been placing in our hearts. In case you feel like you are slacking look deep into your soul because probably you have turned away from being on fire for Jesus and He is yearning for you that you may go back to your first love for Him. This is a way of achieving fulfillment and living a purpose-driven life.
You are made new in Christ hence you should stop living as if you are dead yet God is calling you to be alive because the old has gone and He is looking forward to doing something new in your life.
