2 Corinthians 5:17 Scripture Meditation by Stephen Taylor

2 Corinthians 5:17

If anyone is in Christ, the new creation has come: The old has gone, the new is here!

Amen!! Today, God reminded me of this, and that throughout my life, I have been known by many names: addict, liar, sluggard, drunkard, selfish, stingy, hateful, jealous – the list goes on and on!

But because of Jesus Christ, my Lord and Savior, I have a new name! It’s Forgiven and Loved Child of God!!! Praise Jesus!!! It wasn’t by anything I did but by His love, sacrifice, and resurrection!!!!

Jesus didn’t die to reconcile Himself to God. He did it to reconcile us!! I say this to encourage myself and you to not lose heart and remember that we aren’t the sum of our past mistakes but are new creations – still flawed but forgiven!!!! I would be lost without the mercy, grace, and strength God gives me daily!!!!

I love you all. God bless!!! Glory to God and the risen Lamb of God!!!!!!
