Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, he is a new creation; old things have passed away, and look, new things have come.
2 Corinthians 5:17 HCSB
When we receive Christ as our personal Saviour, we are like caterpillars: When we accept Jesus Christ as our personal Saviour, we begin to change as we move forward in our learning of Him; we go into the protective cocoon of our Lord, we grow, we change, we shed our old selves and spring forth as a beautiful butterfly, a new creation from the old. Our old self is gone and we are truly born anew; we are born again as a child of God.
Embrace your new newness and sing praises to your Creator!
