If anyone is in Christ....

So the cross not only brings Christ's life to an end, it ends also the first life, the old life, of every one of His true followers. It destroys the old pattern, the Adam pattern, in the believer's life, and brings it to an end. Then the God who raised Christ from the dead raises the believer and a new life begins.

A.W. Tozer




Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, he is a new creation; the old has gone, the new has come! 2 Corinthians 5:17

That is such good good news! I am so very thankful that I am a new creation, not the same person I was as a kid or even in my college days. Thank you Jesus!

I'm new to your blog but...I will be back.

It's amazing to me that just reading HIS words written so many years ago, still speak life and truth to my heart.

Have a wonderful Easter celebrating our risen Lord!
