2 Corinthians 5:17
No matter who we are or what we’ve done in the past, God is the God of fresh beginnings. For once we receive Jesus as our Savior, we experience a “new birth”. And through the indwelling of the Holy Spirit, the old us becomes the new us, reconciled back to God, declared righteous, and eternally forgiven. The past is old and forgotten. And as new creatures of the Lord with new spirits and natures, we become heirs in His kingdom. No longer is our destiny death and destruction, but instead a heavenly one spent at the side of Jesus and in the presence of God forever!
