He Makes A New Way–
Jesus came to clean the mess we make. It seems impossible for a Great God to love someone as flawed and damaged as you and me. But the God who breathed life into humanity is the same God who will make a way for you and me. He is the ultimate loophole for your sin and eternity.
See, I am doing a new thing! Now it springs up; do you not perceive it? I am making a way in the wilderness and streams in the wasteland.-Isaiah 43:19
I will sprinkle clean water on you, and you will be clean; I will cleanse you from all your impurities and from all your idols. I will give you a new heart and put a new spirit in you; I will remove from you your heart of stone and give you a heart of flesh. And I will put my Spirit in you and move you to follow my decrees and be careful to keep my laws.-Ezekiel 36:25-27
Renewing Heart & Mind through Christ
Ok, God makes the way. Now with your attitude. God creates a new spirit and new life in us. When you accept Christ in your heart and spirit, He cleanses us. There were many people Jesus encountered that when man shamed, Jesus redeemed. Yes, there are people who will remind you who you use to be. You no longer live there. You are not your past. You are present and redeemed.
Create in me a pure heart, O God, and renew a steadfast spirit within me.-Psalm 51:10
Therefore, if anyone is in Christ,the new creation has come: The old has gone, the new is here!-2 Corinthians 5:17
You were taught, with regard to your former way of life, to put off your old self, which is being corrupted by its deceitful desires; to be made new in the attitude of your minds; and to put on the new self, created to be like God in true righteousness and holiness.-Ephesians 4:22-24
So we are feelin our new being in Christ but then you have to wake up and deal with traffic, work, kids, life. I know because I have been on a Sunday highs then Monday lows hit. Jesus is the same today, tomorrow, and forever. He will give you the strength and endurance to make it. He renews you and me daily if we put Him first in our day.
Because of the Lord’s great love we are not consumed, for his compassions never fail. They are new every morning; great is your faithfulness. I say to myself, “The Lord is my portion; therefore I will wait for him.”-Lamentations 3:22-24
