“Newbie Person” – Rev. Allan Brooks – 2 Corinthians 5:11-17

Noob. noun. Someone who is new. Around this time every year people start making resolutions to better them selves. “New year, new me” they say, and there is nothing wrong with that. But then the resolution is abandoned and the “new me” slips back into old routines. In the midst of this yearly struggle, we are given this simple truth in scripture, that “if anyone is in Christ, the new creation has come: The old has gone, the new is here!” (2 Corinthians 5:17). We are made new in Christ, no longer bound to the old ways of living and the parts of our lives that we wish to change. Let go of what you wish to change, cling to Christ and allow Him to renew you in the light of His grace!
