This means that anyone who belongs to Christ has become a new person. The old life is gone; a new life has begun! 2 Cor. 5:17
Because of grace God doesn’t take our past mistakes into the relationship He establishes with us as His children. He looks at us and sees us as new people, without all the baggage. Wouldn’t life be amazing if we extended the same grace each of us has received from Him to one another? George MacDonald wrote that “love is both the opener and closer of eyes.”
Lord, open my eyes to what I need to see and close them to what I don’t.
