You are a New Person ... but do you live as one?

“Train up a child in the way he should go, and when he is old, he will not depart from it.” – Proverbs 22:6

“…if anyone is in Christ, he is a new creation; old things have passed away; behold all things have become new.” – II Corinthians 5:17

“Ask and it will be given to you; seek and you will find; knock and it will be opened to you.”
 - Matthew 7:7

You are
a new creation – a new man, a new woman
The lies, sins
of the world you lived
no more.

Or are they?!

 Do you continue
keeping a firm grip
on that which you desire
but only brings
and discouragement
to you
and to loved ones
around you?

Do you think
because you are
a new creature,
a new person in Christ,
you are above reproach
and the Lord
will not
discipline you
or bring judgment?

The deeds of your past
must die
if what you profess
to be
is true

Do not lie
nor pretend the old things are gone
if you are not obedient
to the way of Christ

The Holy Bible
that sits idle
week after week after week
is your lifeline
your instruction book
your manual to daily living,
to family life

When you
do not
open God’s word
you are clueless
to His every desire for you
to His every guiding principles
to His blessings

Don’t let your personal wants,
desires and misconceptions
get in the way
of God’s Reality and God’s Truth.
