2 Corinthians 5:17

2 Corinthians 5:17 (NKJV)  Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, he is a new creation; old things have passed away; behold, all things have become new.

Once you have repented and received Jesus as your Savior, His blood washes you clean and He makes you a new creation. Who you were and what you did are in the past and are no longer.

The enemy will use family and friends to remind you of your past, and all the things you had done if they do not have Jesus as their Lord, but Jesus does not look at your past. He looks at you with loving eyes and sees the person you are today.

You were a lump of clay that in His hands has been formed into a fine piece of pottery. You are His vessel and He fills you with His Spirit with peace love and joy. He gives you hope when the world tells you that all is hopeless. You were a stone just lying on the ground that people used to trip over or throw to break things. Then He picked you up and placed you on His foundation and you became a part of His temple. You are precious and loved more than you ever know. Whoever you were before and whatever you may have done is gone from His sight and what He sees when He looks at you is His beautiful and amazing creation. Live in the newness of who He has made you to be and not in the past. Yesterday is gone. Today you are alive and the possibilities of tomorrow are endless.
