Old things are Passed Away   2 comments

2 Corinthians 5:17

Therefore if any man be in Christ, he is a new creature: old things are passed away; behold, allthings have become new.

When we come into faith in Christ we become a NEW person. Christ took ALL of our past, our sin, our pain on the cross and when he was in the grave he left it there. When we accept Him as our Savior and make Him LORD then he gives us His Spirit. There is no darkness in Him so he begins the work of shining the light if TRUTH into every closet and corner of our lives healing and setting us free from all of our hurts and hang-ups. This process is not a painless one. Sometimes we realize for what ever reason that we do not want to let go of a particular hurt or habit because it has comforted us for a long time. But I encourage to consider the alternative. When we choose to abandon these things, what does He do? He blesses us with His healing and the “Peace that passes ALL understanding”

Romans 12:1-2

And so, dear brothers and sisters, I plead with you to give your bodies to God because of all he has done for you. Let them be a living and holy sacrifice—the kind he will find acceptable. This is truly the way to worship him. Don’t copy the behavior and customs of this world, but let God transform you into a new person by changing the way you think. Then you will learn to know God’s will for you, which is good and pleasing and perfect.

My friends I pray that you surrender completely to him so he can heal you completely.
You shall know the Truth and the Truth will set you FREE!
He who the SON sets free is free INDEED!

  1. I remember the first time you encouraged me to change my behaviors and faulty way of thinking.I I laughed to myself and thought, “that will never happen”.
    I have no reasonable explaination why I allowed what you were saying to take root in my brain, but I am so greatful that it did. I have harbored so much anger and held on tightly to the things that hurt me so deeply, that Every aspect of my life was infested with bitterness. On the inside of my soul I felt dead and useless.
    What you gave me that day was hope that things didn’t have to stay this way.
    Those things that I was holding on to, were nothing but a heavy wieght pulling me to the bottom of the lake. But, now I am free of those things. I don’t have a need to hold on to them because I know they do me no good. I don’t need to look behind me any longer because I have a new focus ahead of me.
    Having God in my heart, my soul, my brain and my life has freed me. I truely feel in awe of God and so very greatful that He allowed me to come home after my long walk away from Him.
    Those old things have passed away and in their place I have found happiness, healing and Peace.
    Thank you for overlooking the anger and for seeing the child of God hiding behind it.
    Thank you for sharing your faith with me.

  2. Hi Garry, this verse speaks volumes if properly understood but some do not know what it is referring to but the cross reference below makes it very clear, sadly confused and deceived they are in darkness and so they live defeated lives and do not experience the Victory they can have in Christ Jesus without the bondage of sin that makes them slaves.

    John 8:34-36 Jesus replied, “I tell you the truth, everyone who sins is a slave to sin. Now a slave has no permanent place in the family, but a son belongs to it forever. So if the Son sets you free, you will be free indeed.

    Jesus is our only Teacher and leads us along the right road and He Teaches us all things, so why should we listen to those who are travelling along the wrong road.

    Christian Love Anne.
