Each week this year, I am challenging myself to memorize a Scripture verse (or verses). This week’s verse is 2 Corinthians 5:17… “Therefore, if any man be in Christ, he is a new creature; old things are passed away; behold, all things are become new.”
This verse is talking about Renewal… replacing that which is worn or old.
Not renovation, which is only replacing enough worn or old parts to be put back into good condition.
Not restoration, which is only bringing something worn or old back to its original condition.
Not refreshing, which is only polishing up the exterior.
Not rejuvenation, which is only making something as it was when it was young.
This is renewal. God renews us… making us as if we are new again.
Think about that… with a smile on your face!
