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)
We all like new stuff. New shoes, new clothes, new video games, or a new phone. New stuff is just the best! Do you know that when God sees you, he sees new? When God looks at you after you’ve accepted Jesus as your savior He sees a new creature.
He doesn’t see who you were before you knew Jesus. He doesn’t see your shortcomings, failures and all the stuff that you’ve done wrong. In fact, He says He won’t even remember your sin anymore. What He does see is someone who is fresh and new and incredibly special in His eyes!
When you think about how excited you get when you get a new phone and you can’t wait to use it, that’s just a fraction of how excited God gets about you. He loves you and is thrilled that you’re His child.
