2 CORINTHIANS 5:17 ~ THEREFORE, IF ANYONE IS IN CHRIST, HE IS A NEW CREATION. THE OLD HAS PASSED AWAY; BEHOLD, THE NEW HAS COME.
WHEN YOU ACCEPTED JESUS AND LORD AND SAVIOR, A TRANSFORMATION BEGAN IN YOUR LIFE.
JESUS TOOK YOU, WHO WAS A SLAVE TO SIN AND MADE YOU INTO A NEW PERSON, FREE FROM SIN, AND IN SERVICE TO HIM.
THE OLD EXCUSES OF, "I'M ONLY HUMAN," AND "EVERYBODY SINS," DON'T WORK FOR US.
WE ARE NEW, NO LONGER TIED TO SIN AS WE ONCE WERE, BUT CHAINED TO JESUS.
YOU AND I ARE NEW. IN THE WORDS OF PAUL, WE ARE A NEW CREATION.
THERE'S A SENSE OF BEING COMPLETELY MADE OVER, WITH ONLY THINGS THAT HE WANTS TO BE CARRIED OVER.
Roughly 1 minute considering verses of the Bible, and I, a dad, would explain them to my sons.
