NEW!!!!! IMPROVED!!!!!!! We look for those names and labels all the time. We deep down my yearn for those labels ourselves. But, we know who we are. We know our mistakes and shortcomings. We know how we have tried to improve ourselves, but nothing seems to last that long. We know we are way past new. But, then we remember the words of Jesus–“What is impossible for humans, is possible for God.” God has given us his Son to make all things new for us each day. We longer have to be defined by our past mistakes, hurts, battle scars, etc. But, instead are defined each day by the cross of Christ and what it gives to us–the name and identity of Child of God. If that is not new and improved each day, I don’t know what is!
As you watch this Jason Gray video–“I am new”–think to yourself–“what is the newness God is calling me to today?”
