One aspect of becoming new is casting off or leaving behind the old.
“-old things are passed away; behold all things are become new.” (2 Corinthians 5:17) IN Christ, I have the capacity to walk away from a dead past and walk toward a new future.
IN Christ, I’m new, novel, fresh, recent, unused, unworn, uncommon, and unprecedented. I’m practically a new species! I’m a “Christ-one” with a fresh, new journey ahead of me.
