What was perfectly normal and acceptable before salvation is not only unacceptable but so out of character it is hard to believe I am the same person. Well, when I read the scripture I find I really am not that person. I am born again and made new! Thank you, Jesus for such a wonderful gift.
A New Creation
Those that learn God’s ways
Change the image they portray.
They desire to emulate God’s dear Son,
For with Him they are joined as one.
Their habits will change, bad ones replaced
With new ones that glorify Him and will not disgrace.
Their lives will be like an arrow pointing,
With a good light so others can the truth see.
Their hearts lift to be cleansed,
From all dirtiness and sin within.
Hopes aim higher than the earth;
After they have spiritual rebirth.
You are more willing to do your destiny fulfill;
For now you love good and hate evil.
You testify of the freedom you have found,
And you will not allow anyone turn you around.
When you have decided to follow the Jesus as King,
Your thanks, praise, and worship continue to ring.
Power grows inside as your roots sink in.
You drink living water, and are called God’s friend.
I AM – gives us new life;
A new creation all because of Jesus’ sacrifice
But the path of the just is as the shining light, that shineth more and more unto the perfect day.
2 Corinthians 5:17
Therefore if any man be in Christ, he is a new creature: old things are passed away; behold, all things are become new.
