All Things New!
If you know me then you know that I just absolutely love new beginnings. Not only is today a brand new day with new opportunities, but it is also a brand new month! Happy August amigos! Can't you just feel the beautiful newness?? *shimmies*
With this brand new month, I though't I'd give you some biblical reminders of Christ's newness. Not only does He love us despite our imperfections, and in-spite of us pushing Him away, but He takes our old ways and makes us new! A life with Christ means a life full of newness and life and freedom! Simply put, every true encounter with Christ changes you for the better. Isn't that amazing?!
Here are some verses about newness to keep you pushing this month:
(The verses are from the ESV, but if you want the KJV, I have it linked)
"I waited patiently for the Lord; He inclined to me and heard my cry. He drew me up from the pit of destruction, out of the miry bog, and set my feet upon a rock, making my steps secure. He put a new song in my mouth, a song of praise to our God. Many will see and fear, and put their trust in the Lord"- ESV
"We were buried therefore with Him by baptism into death, in order that, just as Christ was raised from the dead by the glory of the Father, we too might walk in newness of life." - ESV
2 Corinthians 4:16
"So we do not lose heart. Though our outer self is wasting away, our inner self is being renewed day by day." - ESV
2 Corinthians 5:17
"Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, he is a new creation. The old has passed away; behold, the new has come." - ESV
"Do not lie to one another, seeing that you have put off the old self with its practices and have put on the new self, which is being renewed in knowledge after the image of the creator." - ESV
"And He who was seated on the throne said, 'Behold, I am making all things new.' Also He said, 'Write this down, for these words are trustworthy and true.'" - ESV
Amigos, move today, and every new day ahead, knowing that God is with you and that He's in the restoration business. 💞
