“Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, he is a new creation. The old has gone and the new has come.” -2 Corinthians 5:17 ♡
I believe most young Christians hold on to this verse. I, too, hold on to this when temptation keeps on mocking me but here I am, standing firm because I know God is powerful more than anything in this world.
Change is never easy nor can it be done overnight but rather, its a very long process - some have it easy and some may have it hard but in one way or another, I believe we’ll all get there and of course, not with our own strength but with God’s.
It feels great to notice that I, myself, am slowly changing and growing with God. When I didn’t have my priorities set straight before, I’d wake up wanting to read messages on my cellphone or I’d go online in a heartbeat to check accounts and all but now, I start my mornings with a short quiet time with God and read a short verse in my Bible every now and then. It feels great and when I don’t do that routine, I feel empty and I usually go on with a bad mood. But when I do, I feel like I can do all things without anyone ruining my morning and I’d have a smile on my face.
I used to take God’s Word for granted. I’ve always had my own Bible but I never really bothered opening it but now that I’m pretty much hungry for the story of His life, my Bible will serve as my own personal Google.
