II Corinthians 5:17 (TPV) Now, if anyone is enfolded into Christ, he has become an entirely new person. All that is related to the old order has vanished. Behold, everything is fresh and new.
I love the Passion Translation’s commentary on this verse: “This would include our old identity, our life of sin, the power of Satan, the religious works of trying to please God, our old relationship with the world, and our old mind-sets. We are not reformed or simply refurbished, we are made completely new by our union with Christ and the indwelling of the Holy Spirit.” As we move into a new year, let’s prioritize a rhythm of life that puts Jesus Christ at the center. Lean into His divine provisions with face forward, turned toward Kingdom living.
