Being Made New

This means that anyone who belongs to Christ has become a new person. The old life is gone; a new life has begun!

2 Corinthians 5:17 NLT

https://bible.com/bible/116/2co.5.17.NLT

The reality of life in Christ is amazing. Literally, I am becoming a new person. At some point, when this body dies, I even get a “made new” body that lasts forever.

So, my character is made new. My mind is made new. My body is made new. All of this is through faith in Jesus Christ. The ongoing renewal is led by the Holy Spirit and overseen by God the Father.

This is my reality.

Encouragement: God is all about making everything new.

Prayer: Dear God, thank You for making me new in every way. I lean into Your loving renewal in me. In Jesus name, Amen.

I hear His laughter in the sound of children at play and see His joy on the faces of little ...

Trust in Hope

Hope in the context of the Bible is not the same as hope in the context of our current culture. Our culture often uses hope as wishful thinking, "I hope so…." Biblical hope, on the other hand, is an assurance of a promise that will come to pass! Down at the Stables, we have another "Hope" I'd like you to get to know. A large, beautiful, gentle giant of a draft horse named Hope. As an equine partner in our ...
