2 Corinthians 5:17
So that if anyone is in the Messiah, he is a new creation; the old things have passed away; behold, all things have become new!
As a young girl I remember someone coming to the family reunions and he was so fun. He loved drinking wine coolers and telling jokes that were not the cleanest, but what really stuck to me was the year he came back, and he said, “I don’t talk like that anymore nor do I drink wine coolers”. He has found the savior in that year. I still was too young to understand at that point in my life, but here I am 41 years old, and I understand it now. He was living proof of 2 Corinthians 5:17. His old ways passed away and behold, all things became new. He was able to proudly confess it. He turned from his sins.
This is how we should be when we find our savior. Once we except HIM we become a new creation and our past is forgiven and remembered no more. We begin a new journey with the Father and turn away from sin.
