A Brand New Life

“You can’t go back and change the beginning, but you can start where you are and change the ending.”

(C.S. Lewis)

No matter who we are, where we have been, what we have done or even had done TO us in the past, Jesus death and resurrection changes everything. Whether aged 9 or 99 it is never too soon or too late as long as we have breath. The apostle Paul wrote:

Either way, Christ’s love controls us. Since we believe that Christ died for all, we also believe that we have all died to our old life.

He died for everyone so that those who receive his new life will no longer live for themselves. Instead, they will live for Christ, who died and was raised for them.

So we have stopped evaluating others from a human point of view. At one time we thought of Christ merely from a human point of view. How differently we know him now!

This means that anyone who belongs to Christ has become a new person. The old life is gone; a new life has begun! And all of this is a gift from God, who brought us back to himself through Christ.”

(2 Corinthians 5:14-18)

What a wonderful hope we have!
