Everything New

In our Bible verses today, Paul talked about new life in Jesus. Paul knew about becoming a new person. He changed from persecuting Christians to being a missionary for Jesus.

Paul explained that when a person becomes a Christian, his way of thinking is changed. He doesn’t live for himself any more. Instead, he lives for God. A Christian doesn’t see people like he did before. He sees them through God’s loving eyes. God has changed his life in every way.

As Christians, God helps us change our actions, our words and our thoughts. This happens because we allow God’s Spirit to work in our lives every day.

Take time today to thank God for your new life in Jesus. “The old things are gone; suddenly, everything is new! All this is from God” (verses 17b-18a).
