A Brand New Creation

He has made everything beautiful in its time. He has also set eternity in the human heart; yet no one can fathom what God has done from beginning to end. (Ecclesiastes 3:11, NIV)

In this current-day society that is obsessed with detailing how men and women should look, what weight they should be, and using their bodies to sell everything from soap to super yachts, you can set all of that aside and confidently arise to be uniquely and wonderfully you! Jesus specializes in taking people out of the sea of sameness and giving them a new identity—His identity. His love caters to all of the uniqueness of humankind that He purposefully created, and He accepts all of us who love Him unconditionally. 

This is a new day. You can stand tall. You can be you without apology. This world has need of people who have been cleansed by the blood of Jesus, redeemed from the sin that so quickly destroys a life, and whose minds are in ongoing transformation through the abiding Holy Spirit. This world awaits your appearance as the Kingdom citizens of the Most High God. You can boldly step forth. And what’s more, as you do, Jesus celebrates with you all the way. He is the Way, the Truth and the Life. All you need to do is follow in His footsteps. Lead on in your part of the world, people. You are indeed a new creation, and this truth should give you the faith-lift you may need.

Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, the new creation has come: The old has gone, the new is here! (2 Corinthians 5:17)
