So from now on we regard no one from a worldly point of view. Though we once regarded Christ in this way, we do so no longer. Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, he is a new creation; the old has gone, the new has come! All this is from God, who reconciled us to himself through Christ and gave us the ministry of reconciliation. II Corinthians 5:16-18

Observations

• God doesn’t leave you in the condition He found you.
• Your conversion didn’t just turn over a new leaf, you began a new life.
• You have been given the privilege of encouraging others to follow Jesus.

Prayer

Gracious Father, I thank you for transforming me from the inside out. Thank you for the forgiveness of sin and victory over old habits. Thank you for mapping out a new purpose and a plan for my life. Help me to encourage someone to follow you today. May my life be an example of faith, hope and love. In Jesus Name, Amen
