Changed

{ In Christ, the old is gone. The former way of life is in the past and will remain in the past. Because in Him, we are NEW. We are washed clean by the ultimate sacrifice, Jesus Christ. He died not just to conquer sin, but to conquer your sin in order to offer you eternal life. And He wants you to experience life with Him. }

Something the Lord has placed on my heart today is the concept of who I really am in Him. You see, without Him, I’m broken and constantly disappointed when I can’t find satisfaction in life. Without Him, I’m left searching to fill the emptiness in my heart that can only be filled by Him.

BUT, in Him, I am filled. No longer empty. 

The moment I found Jesus, it was like specks fell from my eyes and for the first time I saw true riches. NO ONE can offer anything close to what Christ has freely given. NO ONE can take broken and sinful people and heal them other than Christ.

Christ has swallowed up death. There is no condemnation for those who are in Christ Jesus. In Him, we are free from the claim sin had on us. Because…

With Him, nothing is impossible. (Matthew 19:26)

Because of Him, we are forgiven. (1 John 1:9)

In Him, hope is found. (Psalm 62:5)

No matter what you’ve done or what you’ve experienced, if you ask the Lord for forgiveness, He will not only forgive you, HE WILL TREASURE YOU.

Do you see this beautiful picture of true love and sacrifice?

I want to remind you who you are. Don’t let who you used to be block you from who you can be in Christ. If you’re struggling with anything, remember to take every thought captive to make it obedient to Him (2 Corinthians 10:5). If you are His, you are changed, you are loved, you are treasured, you are forgiven.

 

 

Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, he is a new creation; the old has gone, the new has come! // 2 Corinthians 5:17
